I received an email from BigCommerce for Quality Control. I was inboxed the same forms that have been posted above. I did not want to believe it but I realize now, I was also a victim of this FRAUD! I’m beyond distraught. I just moved to the city in an apartment, I’m single on my own income and I’m commuting for work. My contacts were Garry Hicks and Jessica Winslet! Please any idea as to what I should do going forth. I mailed up to 13 packages with legit merchandise inside. iPads, Apple TV’s, sound bars, cuisinart sets, expensive items. This has drive a wedge in my current and future plans. How stressful! 😓😪
Any information in getting justice , please email [email protected]

Interesting fact… some of the packages I sent were to names listed in these top few posts. However yes I did the work and was never paid. Changed all my bank account information and all my online passwords that may have been similar to ones I used with their system. The police felt like it was some type of identity theft since they asked for all your personal information. I feel like it could be items bought illegally somehow. After the first few they were all high dollar items.

It only took me a few seconds to notice that the email did not come from any employment website i’ve posted a resume on if not searched on. It’s important to check the to and from sections. 1 name claiming to be NATASHA SINGLETON had 2 emails which both claimed to be 2 totally different naming conventions. Not to be gender bias but Natasha sure does not sound like a Lucas. i almost felt compelled to respond before checking these out thoroughly. Let’s continue!
The employer title and position title had periods (.) at the end which gave off the essence of copy and pasted info from someone who didn’t take time to check before sending. I wouldn’t want to work for any associate who can’t even take time to run spell-checks nor write up a proper email for the hiring employer or manager. You shouldn’t also. The positions said full time or permanent and the dates did not match up (2-3 weeks). The position also stated 1-2 hours of work a day working from home which would excite anyone when presented payment of 55$k. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
The sender requested that i send my resume at the end. Instead… i sent an inquiry about which email to respond toward (just to see if they would respond again) yet i’d rather not play with fire and just find out who’s behind the scam to save the next. I didn’t get a response email and don’t look forward to one. I will not delete…i WILL MARK AS SPAM (which auto-deletes/removes also).
Always check sender’s email chain. Always check spelling. Always understand when told that you’ve applied to somewhere, and knowing you didn’t and no matter how good the job sounds – it’s best to mark as spam. Hope this helps someone also… Any other suggestions?

Got an email from Therea Obrien. No mention of company or job title. Pathetic options for pay, but it was wfh, quality control. Got another email from Christine Singleton a day later, with specific job title, company, pay of $60k a year to work 2-3 hrs a day from home. These emails seemed sketchy- email addresses were strange, no mention of who they were or where they found my info. Frustrating that people are on genuine searches for employment and scam artists want to take advantage of them too. Especially during the holidays. I’m sharing this hoping that people will search things first before supplying information.
Margaret – Nov 30, 2020
I received this email as well. First of all, the company maintains websites for businesses, so there shouldn’t be any fulfillment of physical items. I worked for a small business in the past that used bitcommerce, and this felt off to me. Secondly, being paid 60k a year for barely any work from an unvetted employee just sounds fake. No company would ever spend that much. Why wouldn’t they have the people at the fulfillment site test the items? And what items precisely? The name associated with my email was Josie Hall. Upon checking the website, they do not have any remote jobs in this category, as I figured would be the case.

BEWARE! I applied for this work from home Office Assistant position through Indeed.com. I was contacted via email where they detailed the position and salary. I was sent legitimate PDF paperwork via email, told to fill them out and email them back. They have a legitimate looking website called BigCommerce Quality Control with a phone number that if called, goes to an automated answering machine (which should have been the first red flag)
All communication with "the hiring manager" was done only via email. The position was a work from home position where I would be mailed packages via FedEx or UPS, I would open and do a quality check and fill out their online form about my findings on each package. Each package inspected and shipped to their customer would be $40. Per week I was receiving about 5-6 packages a week. Each package received was something very expensive such as new apple watches, electronics, high end apparel, etc. (This is another reason I thought this was a legitimate company) After a 30 day probationary period I was told I would then be considered for a full time position there.
When I would email the manager about pay or packages, I would not get a response. The position promised a payout after 30 days. I stuck to this job for 30 days and on my last day they kicked me out of their fake portal where I was not able to log in anymore to view all my packages or pay. (attached is a picture of their portal they use) There has been no way to get ahold of anyone there and they have not responded to any emails. After this happened I came here to ScamPulse.com to see if anyone else has been scammed in the same way and low and behold, yes! This was a complete waste of my time and these people received FREE WORK from me for a whole month. DO NOT ACCEPT WORK FROM THESE SCAMMERS!
Dale – Nov 23, 2020
I just got the same email, stating they would start me at 60k. Emails like this- i always ignore. They are all piece of [censored] scam artists. The person was called Joanne Joseph by the way. Changing up names- like they always do.
I did not respond. Do not respond to these types of emails people. They are all scammers!
The email stated id be performing quality control and such, I could work 2-3 hrs a day… blah blah blah. Truly pathetic.
Mathew – Nov 16, 2020
I just went through the same thing. I have shipped and received, and more, now I haven’t heard anything since the week prior to getting paid. I am in the hole with UPS for shipping. How and where do I report this? Now I am stuck with $180 invoice for UPS.
I also saved all of the shipping labels, and the labels of where I was to ship to, not sure if these are others scammed as well, or what. But I have it all, and this is not ok to do to anyone.
Janet – Nov 16, 2020
I took multiple screen shots, and printed out pages from the control panel too, as well as created my own personal spreadsheet for tracking. I am a stay at home mom who was trying to help our single income family of 5. This is terrible and this should be fought and stopped before more fall victim.
Edwin – Nov 14, 2020
I reported to indeed and the police so far. They did not pay me either. They are operating under bronxetestbox BC quality and a third one I can’t recall. You can not speak to a human by phone the police and I both tried. Also I contacted UPS they said to report it to www.ic3.gov. They said it’s likely they are using stolen shipping accounts as well. I continue to email them daily. Their website does not take inquiries at the contact us form anymore. Next week I will reach out to other government agencies in my state and in California.
Carrie – Nov 06, 2020
I have been sending and receiving packages. I think it’s legit. They have put a lot of time and effort into the website and software and shipping if they aren’t.
Alan – Nov 11, 2020
Hi I have also been sending and received packages for a month and when it came time to pay nothing was deposited on my bank account. I have called and emailed and Celia Guzman has not responded.
Nicole – Nov 11, 2020
I did the recieving and sending packages for a month and when it came time to pay me I didn’t receive a dime. So it might be legit to an extent but a scam when it comes time to pay. I haven’t recieved my money at all and its been almost a week now.
Robin – Nov 07, 2020
After digging further I have found the phone number on the letter head is registered to a person. Nobody answers it has said for days “all operators are busy”. I have emailed “HR” or Celia Guzman as well as the people in the back office that send packages inquiring as to why nobody answers and received no reply. I am certainly concerned now.
Mitchell – Nov 05, 2020
I was sent a job offer via email, after applying on Indeed. I have tried to reach the company several times to reach HR, but each time it goes straight to a recording asking you to leave voicemail. I emailed Celia Guzman asking for a call back to discuss the position. I received another email with a job offer and asking for my bank account or PayPal info for payroll. I am not sending in personal info without speaking to someone and interviewing. I’m thinking this is a scam

((I sent a question and did not get reply))
Thank you for your email, you will find my answers in “Red”.
I believe my skills meet your requirements.
I started my career as an air crew, followed by Customer Service Representative in Abu Dhabi Airport Services, then Help Desk coordinator promoted to Help Desk Manager, and then moved to the UK College of Policing as their Regional Liaison Officer in the Middle East, and my last post was Bilingual Executive Assistant to the CEO of an Entertainment Company.
Lastly, I have a question related to the position’s name. On Indeed.com, the posted position advertised was “Office Assistant”, whereas the position you are currently offering me is “Quality Control Associate”. Would there might be any of a misunderstanding between these positions or is it safe to assume that they are both so-called the same?

Hello! I realize this is probably a scam I was sending packages out to them.. and today was the pay date. I never received any money and I contacted them multiple times and did not received any messages, therefore promoted me to realize this was an scam :/

I applied for a quality control job via Indeed. I was contacted via email regarding the position and was asked to send some personal information after being given a FAQ and job description. The job entailed receiving packages and doing quality control inspections and then sending the packages to the end customer. I was asked to fill out a questionnaire in lieu of a formal interview. After this step, I was sent a job offer and asked to create an account for a control center account. Here I was again requested for some personal information including drivers license and direct deposit info. It was at this point I realized something may be amiss and did some research on the scam.
