Company Representative scams, Payment Processing scams and other Employment scams.

Received an unsolicited job offer with no real description just salary, etc info, decided to ask follow up questions and express interest. She responded, but again without many details, asking me to fill out a couple forms but not requesting any of the red flag personal info. They also would not indicate where they got my resume.

Their website (http://www.icomsl.com) was suspiciously low quality and all that came up in Google searches was about another company, a radio manufacturer named Icom (even "Icom shipping" just brought up pages about shipping radio purchases). The website was just registered last week by Hosting Ukraine LLC, searches on that name brought up multiple similar scam reports under different company names.

I have filed a complaint to the FTC. I don't have the capability to easily post the emails with my info removed right now, but if those would be helpful I should be able to add them within a day.

The scam is almost certainly a re-shipping scam, where they would "employ" you to receive packages at home and ship them of them. The packages would contain stolen goods and when that is discovered, you would be the only person traceable.

The best thing to do is just block them and don't respond any further.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
