The Eastlake Police Department issued a warning about a scam that’s targeting people looking for work.

It’s called a reshipping scam.

Scammers get their hands on people’s contact information, potentially from resumes posted on job board sites.

The scammers offer a work-from-home job that only requires the employee reship packages.

“They’ll get an email from a company claiming that they’re based overseas and they need somebody in the United States to do something, either reship packages or deposit checks and forward the money to a third party,” said Better Business Bureau President Sue McConnell.

The job sounds simple and the pay seems fair, but McConnell said people should be suspicious.
