Package Reshipping Job Scams – Round 3:

QY-Shippers / QY Shippers / Quality Shippers, LLC

(Published 12/24/20) In late November, 2020 we began to hear from people asking us about the legitimacy of a company called QY SHIPPERS (Quality Shippers). QY Shippers was offering them “career at home” jobs as “Quality Control Inspectors” to receive, repackage and re-ship packages from their homes to international destinations.  Monthly salaries for this service ranged from $2,800 to $4,000, a very attractive salary for sure.  Also, QY Shippers had a very robust website with lots of information about the company, including  that they have been around for 8 years. (As of December 23, 2020)  As you’ll read below, we have been able to pull back the curtain on this fraudulent business, and several small mistakes by these cybercriminals strongly suggest their general location in the world or at least their native language. The jobs they offer to people are part of an illegal shipping scam.  Most likely, the criminals use stolen credit card information to purchase items online and have the merchandise shipped to an unsuspecting “employee.” New employees are given extensive pdf documentation detailing how to re-ship these packages. They are also sent very clever legal contracts about their terms of employment.  There is even an 8-minute video on the QYShippers.com website that explains the work expected of them! (We’ve downloaded that video and posted it below because it is very likely that QYShippers.com will be taken down.)

UPDATE JANUARY 4, 2021: Sometime in the Fall of 2020 we were contacted by a woman we’ll call “Nan” to protect her identity.  Nan was hired by QY Shippers and worked for them, unpaid, for a few weeks. She was promised that her first paycheck would be sent after her first month of work.  However, her suspicions about her new employer grew strong enough to drive her to search online to look for answers to her questions. That’s when she found our article which confirmed what she had already figured out.  QY Shippers was an illegal operation and she was not likely going to get paid for the work she had done.  Though she still had several boxes that had been shipped to her, she immediately sent QY Shippers an email to say that she had quit.  Then she reached out to us with her story, including inside observations that came from working with this bogus company. When we spoke to her she was exhausted by all of this.  It isn’t just the frequent emails and phone calls that she was getting from the QY Shipper’s “Manager” and “Supervisor,” both of whom were eager to retrieve their boxes, no matter what. It was also because she had filled out a W4 and other forms for this bogus company, giving the scammers very detailed and personal information.  This included her social security number, bank information, a copy of her driver’s license, address and phone number.  She was now deeply involved in protecting herself against identity theft, an effort that can be very time consuming, exhausting and anxiety provoking.

Nan has also contacted her local police, the FBI and the FTC to inform them of her suspicions, about the boxes she still had, and the primary concern that she had been shipping merchandise purchased with stolen credit cards.  She also did something that QY Shippers told all their “Quality Control Inspectors” NEVER to do… She opened the inside boxes of merchandise that were sent to her.  She found laptops, tablets, smart watches, cell phones, and headphones.  By talking to Nan, we’ve learned much more about this scam operation and the tremendous facade they built for their “Quality Control Inspectors.” Here are more details, and speculation, from our conversations with Nan…

Though the majority of her communication with QY Shippers has been via email and the “employee” dashboard at qy-dash.com, she has occasionally received phone calls from women who claimed to be a “Manager” and a “Supervisor.” For example, they called to congratulate her on being hired and to give her information about the job.  Nan told us at first she thought these calls were recordings because the women seemed to be reading from a script.  The employee training informed Nan that her job was to open the outer shipping box, inspect the merchandise box found inside, but NEVER open that merchandise box itself.  If she found an invoice or package list inside the shipping box, she was told to throw it out!  She was also told to remove, or completely cover, ALL other labels that were on the outer shipping box before using the new labels she had been sent to reship the merchandise to its new destination. New shipping labels were available to her through the dashboard. These labels showed other U.S. addresses, sometimes to individuals at a residence, and sometimes to companies. Nan told us that she checked a few addresses found on these reshipping labels using Zillow.com and discovered that some of these addresses appeared to be vacant houses for sale. Her guess is that QY ships stolen merchandise using her as a shield, or that QY ships to other illegal organizations as a means to pay them for services. She also believes that law enforcement would see her as a criminal, conducting stolen credit card laundering. (Nan has not yet shared the names of any of these individuals or companies with us but if she does, we will try to investigate their authenticity.)

Some of the boxes Nan received had no return labels on them at all, while other boxes had labels of the companies that the merchandise came from.  We learned that she received more unlabelled boxes several days after she informed QY Shippers that she had quit.  Nan had a feeling that these “unlabelled” boxes were somehow further out of the control of QY Shippers, as evidenced by the fact that they arrived days after she had quit. Nan told us that she grew very suspicious about her “work” because everything she was asked to do was intended to hide the source of what she received before sending it somewhere else.  Also, the labels on each of the boxes shipped to her had her address but ALWAYS someone else’s name.  Finally, because of her prior experiences with legitimate shipping companies, she knew that the money she was being offered was unrealistically high for the work she was doing.  It just didn’t add up! She told us that the logistics industry for receiving and distributing merchandise is a very low paying wage, in part, to keep shipping costs low.  No one, she said, would ever give a bonus of $50 per box to ship it out on the same day it was received.

Nan said that she received many boxes each week. Once she received a box, she was required to log into the “employee dashboard” (qy-dash.com) within 3 hours to report that she received it.  She told us that the dashboard showed a total number of boxes received, and shipped out, by all “employees.”  Whenever she added a box to the list, the total number would increase by one.  Often, this dashboard server was slow to respond and she sometimes clicked the link twice to input a new package. She could see the resulting total increase by 2 shortly thereafter.  This enabled Nan to make a very interesting observation as to the scope and depth of this fraud.  During her weeks with this bogus company, she saw the total package list increase by several thousand boxes received and re-shipped. If each “Quality Control Inspector” received about the same number of packages per week that she received, it was reasonable to think that QY Shippers had at least 70 – 100 mules, moving merchandise during these 3 weeks!

 

 

The newly hired Quality Control Inspector is told NEVER to open a package he or she receives, only the outer box that it is shipped in.  They are then pressured to re-ship that package overseas immediately (same day), most likely to the scammers or perhaps to whomever they are re-selling the merchandise to. Imagine the risk involved if you are caught shipping stolen or ilegal merchandise overseas!  In the course of these scams, some people have informed us that they had actually received a few week’s salary for their work but then the scammers stopped paying them, while other people told us that they were promised a salary after 2 – 4 weeks of work but then were never paid at all.  Ultimately, all of these “employees” were ghosted by these scam “companies.”  We’ve previously published two related articles about these scams and fake shipping companies:

https://www.thedailyscam.com/package-reshipping-scams/ (Updated 6/24/20; published 6/20/19) 

 

QY SHIPPERS feels exactly like previous package-reshipping scams but thanks to several people who contacted us this December, 2020, we have much more information to shed light on yet another bogus company and their fraudulent practices.  Let’s start with a recent email inviting an applicant to apply for a job, followed by several serious RED FLAGS about the email itself. (Any spelling, grammatical or punctuation errors in the emails we cite are those of the scammer. There are many!)

RED FLAGS IN THE EMAIL:

  1. SENDER’S FROM ADDRESS: The email came from the domain “furcouch.com” rather than the business this email claims to represent.  Google knows nothing about “furcouch.com” (as of 12/23/20).  A WHOIS lookup shows us that it was registered on January 20, 2020 — plenty of time for Google to discover this domain and have information about it UNLESS the domain chooses to remain hidden by instructing search engines NOT to crawl it or not having a website to crawl.  We found no website for this domain on December 23 and the Zulu URL Risk Analyzer tells us that the domain has a redirect that will send a visitor to CareerBuilder.com.  Also, “furcouch.com” is being hosted on a server in Kharkiv Oblast, a province in eastern Ukraine.
  2. FRAUDULENT PHYSICAL ADDRESS: QY Shippers lists their address as 15135 Hamilton Ave, Block C-12, Highland Park, MI 48203.  However, a Google search informs us that this address is occupied by a legitimate automotive business called Quality Team 1.  We called this company and spoke to Chris, the Director of Quality at Quality Team 1 on December 23.  He informed us that he has received multiple calls from people investigating a company named “Quality Shippers” because they listed his company’s address as their own.  He’s even heard from the Postmaster General and Better Business Bureau who are investigating QY Shippers.  Chris told us that they have even received several boxes that were shipped to QY Shippers at his company’s address in Michigan but they have refused all the deliveries.
  3. LACK OF INFORMATION: Minor issue but the “HR Department” email is not signed by anyone and no other email address is provided.  Nor do they provide a phone number, though they state that Phone Support is available.

 

During December, 2020, several people have continued to contact us about QY Shippers because they were suspicious about these job offers.  One man told us that he had a phone interview with someone from QY Shippers and the representative told him that they do international shipping. They explained that deliveries would first come to him and he will be asked to inspect them for damage. Then he would be required to ship those packages on to the person who ordered the shipped items.  This gentleman was told that the website for QY Shippers is: qyshippers.com  Does this sound like legitimate work to you? We don’t think so!

 

The domain qyshippers.com is another major red flag! This domain was registered anonymously on November 12, 2020 and is hosted on a server in Quebec, Canada. That’s about two weeks before we began to hear from readers about this “8-year old international shipping company.” (According to their website.) However, the waters around this fraudulent company are even muddier than expected.  It turns out that there were two other similar and related fraudulent domains registered around that same time period. Also there is a REAL shipping company of similar name that seems legitimate and located in Hong Kong and China!  The real company, QYShipping.com, was registered back in 2014 and appears to have a robust website to support its mission.  Unlike the real QYShipping.com company, someone anonymously registered these three domains below in mid-November, 2020.  Each of them has been used in emails sent to people who contacted us about suspicious “package reshipping” jobs:

 

     https://whois.domaintools.com/qy-dash.com        (Registered on November 18; hosted in Amsterdam)
     https://whois.domaintools.com/qy-shippers.com (Registered on November 16 from the Netherlands)
     https://whois.domaintools.com/qyshippers.com   (Registered on November 12;hosted in Quebec)

 

NOTE: In previous package-reshipping scams we’ve written about, the cybercriminals have also used business names SIMILAR to real International shipping companies.  These criminals are clever!

=========================================================================

 

In early December we also heard from a gentleman who had a phone interview with QY Shippers which is very unusual for scammers to do. But the man became very suspicious after being hired. To protect his identity, we’ll call him “Paul.”  Paul tells us that after his phone interview, QY Shippers sent him an employment contract, a job manual and other documentation which he gave us to share with our readers. (All are posted below.) He told us that he visited the Michigan government website to search for this business since it was registered in Michigan. Paul told us that he discovered that QY Shippers was registered as a business only a few weeks earlier, in October, even though the QYShippers.com website says they have been in business for 8 years.  (When we tried to search the Michigan business website for this company on December 23, we found nothing about them at all.)  Unfortunately, as part of the “hiring” process, Paul sent these fraudsters a copy of his driver’s license. This could be a big mistake since that document can be used to perpetrate identity theft against someone in many ways.  Should this happen to you, read this article containing important suggestions to protect yourself if your driver’s license is stolen (or handed over to scammers!)

https://www.experian.com/blogs/ask-experian/what-should-i-do-if-my-drivers-license-number-is-stolen/

 

Paul told us that after being hired by QY Shippers he received a voice message from “Ferletta (Ferla or Perla?) Wilcox,” one of the Supervisors of QY Shippers.  The woman completely mispronounced the man’s name, which suggested to us that English is not her native language. If you listen to all the voice messages from her, you can detect a slight accent.  (Paul sent us the voice messages, with permission to post them but we have cut out his name after the woman says “Hi.”)  Ms. Wilcox can be heard reminding Paul about the 3 critical RULES for him to follow:

  1. Log into your dashboard at least 3 times a day. (These scammers have an online account for employees on qy-dash.com where they inform people of “deliveries” and keep tabs on their reshipping of the packages.)
  2. Report the packages as soon as they are delivered to you. (They want people to upload photos of the packages they’ve received.)
  3. Post the packages on the very same day that the shipping label is provided.  

Ms. Wilcox reminds Paul that he will receive a $50 bonus PER PACKAGE if he re-ships the package on the same day he receives it.  DOES THAT SOUND LEGITIMATE??  Listen for yourself. Notice that at the end of the voice message, Ms. Wilcox lists her direct phone number as 313-666-0793 and her email address uses the domain qy-shippers.com.

QY Shippers phone call to Paul to welcome him to the team.

QY Shippers also asked Paul to open personal accounts with Fedex, UPS and with the United States Postal Service, which he did.  This is another HUGE RED FLAG!  Any legitimate company will ask employees to use the company’s shipping accounts, NOT a personally opened account!  The next day another “supervisor” (a woman named “Nico Hathway”) called Paul and left a message, because he didn’t answer the call. (Hear message below.) This was followed by another email asking him to open the shipping accounts.  She included information about how to pack boxes, etc.They also told him that they will send him some packages in the next day or so.

IMPORTANT TDS NOTES: 

“Nico Hathway” offers her direct phone number as (313) 666-0835.  We discovered that on December 8, someone has identified this phone number as a scam number for QY Shippers on Spokeo.com.  A search for the second phone number, 888-509-9271, turns up nothing.

Since accepting the job with QY Shippers, Paul has received more voice messages and other emails from two other domains:
    Docksideway.com (Registered anonymously on July 18, 2020)
    Valuefkew.com (Registered anonymously on May 5, 2020)

Both of these domains are also hosted on a server in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine, like “furcouch.com” above. Paul tells us that when he tried to visit these websites he was redirected to CareerBuilder.com as well.  Paul sent us the voice messages left on his phone from QYShippers employees. The first one below is again from “Ms. Wilcox” and the second one is from a different woman. (We had trouble hearing her name and position because of the quality of the call.)

WHY QYSHIPPERS.COM IS A COMPLETE FRAUD:

Though we feel there are enough red flags listed above to strongly support our opinion that this company is a complete fraud, the most revealing proof comes from their website itself.  On their “About Us” web page they list the top four Team Leaders of their company:

Mark Sanders, CEO Founder
Helen McKinney, Operating Officer
Charles Barton, Logistics Manager
James Merritt, Warehouse Supervisor

 

Each one of these names is complete fiction.  The photos used on this website were stolen from real people across the Internet.  Below are the names of the real people in these pictures and a link to a location where the stolen photo can be found:

Mark Sanders” the CEO of QY Shippers is in reality Mr. John Brennan, a Compliance Officer at Realogy Holdings Corp., a company in the business of real estate.

Helen McKinney,” the Operating Officer, is really Caroline Winn from San Diego Gas & Electric.

Charles Barton,” the Logistics Manager, is really Wayne Witinitara, a Warehouse Supervisor with Ibex Lighting.

James Merritt” the Warehouse Supervisor, is really Mr. Daniel MacGregor, Director Marketing and Sales, at Nexiot AG.

 

Even the reviewers posted at the bottom of the “About Us” web page are bogus!  One quote supposedly comes from a woman named “Mary Ross,” who gives QY Shippers a 5-star rating.

The image used for “Mary Ross” is a stock image found on many websites around the Internet. But what really got our attention was the fact that this image was found to be associated with sites using the Russian language and websites in Russia itself.  For example, we found it associated with a website in Russia called spb[.]ru.  According to Google Translate, this website represents “The Foundation for Assistance to the Development of Internet Technologies and Infrastructure in Russia.”  But Google found the photo of “Mary Ross” on a subdomain at this site described as “Postcard Galleries” which appears to have links to a wide variety of random photos.

WHO IS LIKELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FRAUD?

In truth, we don’t know who is responsible for this fraud or the other bogus companies we have documented in previous articles about this type of scam.  However, we’ve found a number of breadcrumbs to follow and they suggest that the cybercriminals are most likely native Russian speakers.  (According to Babbel.com, “Russian is the official language of Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, and it’s considered an unofficial lingua franca in Ukraine and many former Soviet countries. These include Azerbaijan, Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.”  Consider these clues:

1. Three of the domains used to send emails to “employees” in this scam are hosted on a server in Kharkiv Oblast, a province in eastern Ukraine where Russian is spoken by a large portion of the population. (“furcouch.com,” “docksideway.com” and “valuefkew.com”)

2. Google’s reverse image search for the photo of “Mary Ross” turns up links and websites in Russia and associated with the Russian language

3. Scammers often use universally accepted pdf files to send to their victims for many different reasons and we’ve attached several of these files below that were sent to Paul.  Every pdf file contains hidden data about the file itself, such as when it was created and what program was used to create it. Most of the time, scammers are very good about removing any data a file may contain that could connect that file to a location or creator of the file.  However, in one of the pdf files sent to Paul, the sender forgot to remove a bit of data that we think is revealing. The “Author” line of the “Dashboard Manual” contains a Russian word “Пользователь” which Google translates to “User.”  This document also has a creation date of May 16, 2019 suggesting that these criminals have been using this document for about a year and a half.  (Coincidentally, we began to hear from TDS readers in mid-May of 2019 about package reshipping scams again after months of silence and we published an article about this scam in late June, 2019. This included the fake business known as TradexPlusUSA.com.)

4. As we stated earlier, this isn’t the first bogus company created to trick victims into shipping stolen or ilegal materials.  We’ve previously reported about fake companies named TradexPlusUSA.com and OverseasDeliveries.com. The domain for the business called Overseas Deliveries (overseasdeliveries.com) was also registered in Russia and the website for OverseasDeliveries.com was hosted on a server in Moscow, Russia.

Of course, we can be wrong about these breadcrumbs.  For example, Paul told us that the last call he received from these scammers was showed up as a phone number from Bangladesh! +880 17 0080 8695

==================================

CLOSURE:

By the time Paul had been hired, he knew that QY Shippers was a complete fraud and had reported them to various authorities.  But the scammers who represented this bogus company did not know that Paul was on to them. Each day they sent him emails to ask why he hadn’t signed into the online dashboard provided to “employees” to see the status of packages sent to him and for him to download shipping labels.  The “rules” were that he agreed to be at home to receive the packages but he wasn’t signing for them.  In fact, Paul was refusing to receive the packages!  Calls from QY Shippers started to remind him about the rules of his “employment.” They also asked him for his bank information so they could “pay him.”  At least, that was their incentive to manipulate him to do their dirty work.  Shortly after he ghosted them, he received a phone call from Bangladesh, he says, and then another from Michigan, both leaving voice messages. Paul also told us that their emails to him included a description of each package as a gold bar “Credit Suisse One Ounce Fine Gold.”  

 

IMPORTANT TDS NOTE: The Better Business Bureau lists QY Shippers (Quality Shippers, LLC) as registering their business on October 26, 2020.  Nothing else is known about this business on the BBB.org website as of December 23, 2020.


Below you’ll find original emails sent to Paul including those he received offering him the opportunity to apply for this job and the acceptance emails. (One of the emails provided a link to a W-4 tax form for Paul to complete.  The website used for this link is NOT a U.S. Government website and VirusTotal.com tells us that the website is known to contain malware!) Also below is a copy of the training video from the QYShippers.com website.  Finally, here are links to the various pdf files sent to Paul in their original format.  The pdf files include:

TDS NOTE: The domain QY-dash.com was used for the “employee dashboard” to communicate about packages sent to victims of this fraud.  This website sits on a server in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Here is a screenshot of the login page on this website:

FINAL NOTE FROM TDS: We have collected evidence and reports from readers about these package reshipping scams that date back to the Spring of 2018.  The operating procedure and practices used in most of these scams we’ve investigated suggest that one cybercriminal gang could be responsible for most of them.

Hi, [NAME REDACTED].

Please observe this inspection policy:

While inspecting packages, DO NOT open or unseal product’s original packaging, unless you receive instructions from the management team to do so. You are only allowed to open the outer shipping box (so-called brown box) to count items, check it for any damages and match them against packing list or invoice (if it’s provided) and then take pictures and make copies of paperwork. You take photo of product in its original box. If it’s damaged you report it immediately to your supervisor and wait for further instructions.

The company guarantees our customers that we ship out brand new products. Except for some cases wherein customers order refurbished/open-box products and they are aware of it.

You may receive correspondence addressed to our customers. DO NOT open it or remove its seal. Please report it to your supervisor. Wait for further instructions from management.

We always keep our customer’s correspondence safe and confidential.

If you have additional questions, let me know.

Thanks.
