Reshipping FraudUpdated 7 months ago

As more businesses start operating on the Internet, the chances of fraudulent purchases increases. Many scams and illegal operations have been updated and modified for use in the eCommerce environment.

According to the U.S. Post Office and FBI one of the most prevalent schemes making a comeback is that of reshipping.
This fraud depends upon unsuspecting victims looking for a work from home job, or a way to supplement their income. The unsuspecting person may become involved in an illegal act and be liable for civil damages as well as being defrauded themselves by having their identity stolen and used to perpetuate the reshipping scheme.

If you have been hired as a reshipper employee or in any other capacity, notify your local law enforcement agency or the FBI as soon as possible and DO NOT forward or reship any packages received in this capacity.
