Complaint Review: Prestige post - Plant City Florida
Prestige post Usprestigepost.com The premier prestige group, Inc. Fake work from home, mail package fraud -scam Plant City Florida
*INTERNET WORK FROM HOME/FRAUD - FAKE BUSINESS ATTEMPTING ID THEFT. FAKE POSTAGE FOWARDING SCAM.*
How it works: These people approach you from a job site where you post your resume and offer you a work from home opportunity as a "quality assurance postage inspector" working from home, for a fake company who's physical address in Plant City, Florida that does not physically exist.
This international scam artist group claims to be a postal forwarding company that mails online orders from the biggest retailers and ships those goods to their alleged warehouse location (which does not exist), where they ship it to you, where your job is to "inspect" the packages, document, take pics, upload each order on their website and then send it somewhere else.
They then get your personal information and try to get your bank account information or paypal info so that they can "pay you" the $1500/month salary and then $50 per parcel you process.
Sounds too good to be true?
They also have a good video animated sales presentation that took some money and time for people to be hired to produce this - which is what makes the average person beleive they are legit -the website and this video is how they almost fooled me, until I peiced everything together quickly.
They pretend to be operating/hiding in a giant industrial warehouse space in Plant City Fl. This recently constructed massive commercial property they are alleged to be out of sits on a recently subdivided land parcel from an actual strawberry farm that it's on named "fancy Farms" -which is a real business that grows produce for all over FL. Google maps has not even updated the aerial views of this, so it's very difficult to get legitimate information about this location. This massive warehouse complexes in the 100k's of sqft has spaces for lease, but leasing management has confirmed they do NOT exist, nor does the address listed exist either.
Another dead giveaway of any criminal trying to assert their legitimacy, is on their site, on their front page, they actually disclose their alleged EIN, which when you check it out on Sunbiz .org, which is FL's government lookup site, it's belonging to a couple in that city operating under the name "The premier prestige group, INC" and it shows the filings, but the contact numbers for the couple listed are not valid and no one answers the phones.
These people that contact the unsuspecting job hunter all have accents, and muliple people all bombard you with different emails as different roles. Each of them are some kind of head manager or HR, or immediate superviser. Their HR conducts their "hiring process" from a woman with a thick accent and then eagerly "approve" you to work for them, and then another "manager" calls you to welcome you, and then another person... ALl of them are operating outside of the country.
Interesting part is that They have a decent website that looks legite, along with a convincing animated video -which is enough to fool most people.. However everything they are doing is a red-flag: The Ip addresses from their emails are all rerouted -coming from Russia or Ukraine, which is routed through the UK. They are using a hosted website DNS address that's untraceable (I've checked), and they claim they were in business since 2015, when the domain name was made up in february 2020. Their testimonials from supposed previous customers on their site are actually pictures taken from russian singles sites. They all have local 813 area code phone numbers and they text you from that number as well.
The most obvious scandulous part is that They can't put you in touch with another local worker in the US for reference. They do not disclose where these packages are going to.
In ALL, our Law Enforcement agencies around the nation have zero interest in stopping this or doing anything to investigate it. They must be fooling people because they actually seem pretty well organized, but there's too many holes for the train eye to see..
However, this is not legite. I won't go along with this and it may be one giant Identity theft scam, or considering they are mailing goods across the country, they are probably peddling stolen merchandise also.
