Employment Scam

Updated

Similar to pet and classified scams, there is an employment scam listed on classified sites or job sites. 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 three parts. First, they steal your identity when you submit your personal information for the application. Second, you become a "mule" for stolen items by re-shipping stolen products to another address, usually to port or directly overseas. Third, you're performing work for which you're very unlikely to be paid.

How to Avoid Employment Scams

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.

If you think you may have come across one of these schemes, please contact our Member Support team.
