Mine isn't the same, but I just recently got scammed on a western union job similar to this so here it is. He is not asking for any money that"s why I'm not sure.

Welcome to Scamwarners. It's a scam, but not one after your money.
The purpose of this job is receiving, checking, rewrapping and reshipping parcels

I'm not aware of any legitimate reason to employ someone to reship parcels. The contents will have been bought using stolen credit card details, leaving you in trouble when the fraud is noticed. The scammer will stay free.

Thank you for helping spread a word of caution about these types of messages! Based on the information listed within your original post, the message in question does appear to be a payment processing (shipping) scam. It also appears to be a spoof message designed to appear as if it came from a legitimate source or 3rd party company in order to lend it credibility.

We recommend such messages be disregarded and any current or future correspondence attempts related to the message be ignored.

Thank you.

Hi @CBSiteSecurity and welcome to ScamWarners.

Thanks for taking such a proactive stance to employment scams.

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.

Welcome to ScamWarners txluckycharms. It is good you realized you were dealing with a scammer. Since you sent the package back, I don't believe there is anything you can do. The evidence is on it's way back to the source.

Was the source an individual or a company? If you have any of the information you might be able to alert the company. If it was from an individual, either they are a victim or a mule. The scammers want to have someone between themself and anyone else they are dealing with so that when things fall apart, they remail anonymous.

Something in the transaction will be stolen or forged. The credit card used to purchase the item was a stolen card or the account the items was shipped through was stolen.
