Employment Scam

Updated

Similar to pet and motorcycle scams, there is an employment scam listed on classified sites or job sites like Monster.com. The job posting offers you a Shipping/Receiving position from uShip.com and if you apply for this position, you become an intricate part in a scheme known as reshipping fraud.

This scam works in two parts. First, they steal your identity when you submit your information via the application. Second, you become a "mule" for stolen items by re-shipping stolen products to another address, usually to port or directly overseas. 

How to Avoid

All of uShip's jobs are available on our site, listed on our Jobs page. Also, uShip does not have offices outside of Austin, TX in the United States. Further, we do not hold cargo, packages or animals. Therefore, we would not hire anyone to reship packages. That is not the uShip model. uShip is not involved in the physical transport.
