I think they have stolen the bigboxsuperstore.com info and using it. The address for the bigboxsuperstore.com is different from the Eshops Direct LLC when you check the BBB.org Eshops Direct LLC is 10 minutes away from the bigboxsuperstore.

I'm actually an "employee" of E-shops Direct llc. I received the same message via email shortly after I applied for the position on Indeed.com. I thought it was legit because they asked for so much paperwork, had a handbook, requested tax forms, and even had a website where I communicated with my manager and tracked the incoming and outgoing packages. It really seemed like the real deal. I had iPads and $700 cameras coming to my house to be shipped overseas. But when it was time to get paid (30 freakin' days later), I couldn't get in contact with anyone. Not only did I waste 5 weeks of my time, but I'm afraid if this business is conducting illegal transactions with my name and address associated with it. How do I even file a complaint about this???
#184986 by vonpaso xlura Sun Dec 22, 2013 12:09 am
Please post as many emails as you can here, with complete headers, removing your name and address. Also if you have the shipping labels, to show where the packages went, post them too. If they're in PDF or something other than a raster format, so they can't go into Upload Eater, let me know and I'll tell you where to email them.

This is a package mule job (the scammers buy stuff with stolen money and hire people to ship it overseas), but the website links to a company registration, so we need more detailed evidence to kill it.

Also print out all the emails and show them to the police. If you don't, they'll come looking for you, and you could do jail time.

We are responding to your job inquiry submitted via email. We present you the opportunity to become better acquainted with the detailed job description and our company’s activities. You can find a link to the company website in the enclosed application.

About Eshops Direct.

Eshops Direct is a venture funded online startup with physical presence in Florida which enables its clients to rent a postal address in the USA.

Foreign companies that buy and sell goods in the US and ordinary consumers from many countries find this service to be invaluable.

Eshops Direct is always seeking to develop its services further through a number of strategies based on innovation. We create value for our customers by going far beyond the ordinary mail forwarding or brokerage services. We do this by utilizing the most up-to-date technological solutions and through efficient warehousing and human resources management approaches. Our remote employment approach allows us to maximize the number of addresses in different states that can be offered to our clients. This also enables us to reduce our storage expenses, to be more competitive and keep our business green.

Duties:

- Stay at your home-based workplace from 10am to 6pm Monday-Friday.

Safety:

You can feel secure during the work process. We work only with fully paid shipments. The parcels usually contain consumer electronics, clothing, auto parts and sporting goods. You will be able to inspect the majority of parcels yourself. All of our customers go through a thorough verification process which includes phone interview and background checks. On top of that our customers are required to submit two types of ID and 1583 form certified by a notary.

Please be conscious of such instances.
2. An online account will be created for you to handle the items on delivery. Furthermore, this will also serve as the main communication method between you and your designated supervisor. To get the utmost use of this resource, you should check the account from time to time throughout the working hours.

I FILLED OUT AN APPLICATION AND GAVE VERY DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT MYSELF. I HAVE NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY PHONE OR EMAIL SINCE SENDING IN MY EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT. THIS SEEMED TO GOOD TO BE TRUE FOR THE MONEY BEING PAID AND NO RESPONSE BACK. LUCKILY IT WAS A GOOGLE DRIVE APPLICATION I FORWARDED AND I HAVE SINCE DELETED IT. WHAT IS A REPORT IC3 AND WHERE DO I FILE ONE?
#186806 by mattstonewell Thu Jan 09, 2014 1:27 pm
This is definitely a scam. I got lured into this job too. The state police and a federal investigator just left my house. I have a cease and desist order from the U.S. Postal Service. Fortunately the investigators gave me a pardon in writing because, apparently, more police will be knocking on my door for other disputes from fraudulent purchases shipped to me.

If anyone happens to be approached by ANY reshipping organization. DO NOT get involved!! There are many layers set up by the Russian Mafia so they will never get caught, YOU WILL. If you already are involved, file a complaint with the U.S. Postal service asap. http://ehome.uspis.gov/fcsexternal/default.aspx. Contact your local police department and make an official statement and be transparent as possible!!

You can file a complaint through IC3 but filing through the USPS is the more appropriate route.

Hope this can help someone else.
#186935 by Dekeamus Fri Jan 10, 2014 4:04 pm
I also got scammed with this. I did file an IC3 and with my local police dept. I'm more embarrassed than anything else at this point.

I did make copies of everything I sent, correspondence, and the "contract" and made sure my lifelock was working, no hits on id theft yet thankfully, I just hope this works itself out soon, I would hate to find out sometime in the future I have some kind of warrant out there I wasn't aware of. Any other advice from anyone?

Thank you guys SO much! I was recently (yesterday) contacted by a company called Packages Plus LLC and it sounded like a great deal. Having just retired from a management job with a major airline, I was very interested and it DID sound good. Thank goodness I found this blog and didn't do it. Hopefully others who search for this company name will see this post and shy away. I was unable to find anything bad with this company name. Thanks again!!
