The FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service have seized eighteen web domains used to recruit money mules for work-from-home and reshipping scams.

The seized websites claimed to offer jobs for a legitimate company as “quality control inspectors,” being requested to ship items from their homes or even purchase goods using their own credit cards.

The victims photographed the packages they received, reshipped them to a different address as instructed, and received $20 for each processed item.

“Employees” logged in on an online platform pretending to be the company’s collaboration system, from where the operators provided their instructions.

FBI accessed the account of one of the scammed “employees” and found a history of 25 fraudulent purchases, including a laptop purchased with a stolen credit card.
