Much like the rest of everyone here I was employed by elqin and was promised the money and the potential for employment through elqin. They have my social security number

Hilary – Oct 01, 2020

I also was hired by Heine Inc/Elqin on a probationary period and the exact same things have happened to me. Everything was fine until the end of the probationary period when the first check didn’t arrive and I complained so was told by Courtney Bennett that another check would be mailed out. I have again sent emails and tried reaching the company. The website is down and all numbers ring busy.
I will be reporting this company to the Dept of Labor, the Police Department, the Better Business Bureau and also to the FBI. Obviously they used MANY people in their scam and are now possibly going to use our private info to do more damage.
I am willing and have ALL info on this company so if it is needed, contact me at [email protected]

Same story as everyone else that has posted about Eli. / Heine Inc. I did the 30 day probation period. I was told that my check had been mailed out. Suppose to take approx 7 business days. It’s been 2 weeks. Can’t reach Emma Griffin or the “payroll Dept” by phone. Emails don’t get through either.

I still have a package sitting here. I wonder what I should do with it?

Was asked to sign a contract for a 30 day probationary period shipping processing job by Alvina Smith. Supervisor was Emma Griffin who shipped out 3 orders for processing, then was told by Courtney Bennett that a check in the amount of $2750 plus expenses would be mailed out on 09/04/2020. It is 09/28/2020 and no check.

The so-called contract from Elqin Heine sent out by Alvina Smith

Justin – Sep 29, 2020

Same thing as others. Signed with contract, with Alvina Smith was shipped 3 packages from Emma and was told by Courtney Bennett in Payroll that a check would be sent out after probationary period. It’s 30 days later and no check and the whole website is gone. Emails from all three aren’t being accepted. A huge scam and waste of time. Although I would very much like an explanation as to what exactly is the point of shipping merchandise to these applicants and then disappearing. I received 2 orders of Victoria Secret and a piece of machinery like for a printer or laptop.

I entered into this “opportunity” with the mindset that Elqin can possibly be a scam and possibly not, considering the elaborate pay for a simple task & surreal benefit package. Thus, I provided a fake social security number with the application for my protection. I processed about nine packages within three weeks, until a detective from the local police department, knocked on my door at 8:30am. He stated that a package was sent to my home using the credit card of a local resident that had been stolen/compromised. I quickly printed off every Elqin correspondence and email, and handed the two recently received packages to the detective. When “Emma” inquired about the two packages, I responded through message by informing her that her packages have been confiscated by the polices, and that my relationship with Elqin has ended. Last, I filed a police report to protect myself from any fraud that has been committed through Elqin.

I have two credit monitoring services, and so far, no harm has been done. Yet, one of my credit card companies did inform me that someone tried to access my account attempting to pose as me, but failed the security questions. If I were a betting man, I would bet that one of those Elqin B****es tried it.

Rafael – Sep 27, 2020

All of these stories are the same. I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Since most scams require you to put some money up prior to working for them and this one didn’t I was hoping it was legitimate. My wife had her doubts from day one but I wasn’t convinced. They had a website, I signed a contract, and actually spoke to someone on the phone. In total I received and shipped a total of 15 packages during my “probationary” period. Oh and I passed their quiz that was mandatory before being able to move to a permanent position.

Once my 30days were up I got really suspicious when they told me it would take 10 business days for them to make a decision on whether I would be a regular full time employee. Then I was told a paper check was mailed to and to to wait 7 business days to receive it. That struck me as odd for a company that required speed and tracking information for every package. Once the 7 days passed and no check I reached out to payroll via email and was told that they would cancel the check and mail another one, wait 7 more business days for it. I replied that that was unacceptable and that I needed a checked FedExed to me within 48 hours or I was contacting the authorities. Of course I didn’t receive a response. 72 hours later I couldn’t log in because the system was down for maintenance. Then 24hrs after the website and everything associated with it has disappeared.

Thankfully I do have screenshots, invoices, packing slips, and shipping labels for everything I shipped and received. However I’m not sure that’ll do me any good now.

Same exact thing as everyone else happened. Sent my ID documents in including SS, signed some DocuSign docs, did the 30 day probationary period but nothing has arrived. It looks like the database website they provided us to use for our orders as well as their “official” site of Elqin.com has been shut down. Very disappointing to know there are people messing around with people’s income like that. Will be complaining to US Dept of Labor

Pamela – Sep 25, 2020

The same happened to me as well with the signing document and getting my license and social ss# as well. Waited 30 days probation and no check tried to call send e-mails no answers . I have screen picture of the chatting with emma griffin my supervisor at that time .with the orders that i process .

Back in June or July, I had received an email from this company for a job offering and accepted it. I did an interview and filled out some forms on Docusign like most jobs. They explained to me what I was going to do and that my first check would be around $2700 plus reimbursement for gas and certain supplies. The main reason why I took this job is because it was a work from home job and the starting salary was good to live on. The job itself did seem a little confusing but I decided to give it a try. When I was suppose to receive my first paycheck, I never did and almost three weeks went by I complained to the payroll department. They responded and said that it probably got lost in the mail and that they could not deposit it into my bank account because it was for full-time employees only. I asked about the decision about my evaulation so I can know if I need to look for another job or not. I was told that there were delays and they were overwhelmed with things. When I heard things I started to get suspicious about this company. My father was telling me how this job might be a scam and I’m afraid he was right all along. They supposedly sent me a replacement check over a week ago and that never arrived either. Now I was on what they called “probationary period”, I guess more like a temporary position but now that I think about it does seem sketchy. Today I had emailed both my supervisor and the payroll department about the issue and how upset I was. Strangely, I did not receive a response from neither. I warned them that if I have to take some kind of legal action I will. If anyone received an email about a job offer from this company, DO NOT ACCEPT. Please report these people. They are scamming people and possibly committing some shady acts behind the scenes. I have now heard about a few places scamming people for employment. Be careful.

I was so mad about the situation I forgot that they have my ss#. I tried to freeze it but couldn’t due to having to complete other things first. But I did a check on one of the credit reports and nothing about my ssn being used.

Russell – Sep 23, 2020

Exact same ty happened to me. Make sure to freeze your credit reports (all 3) to protect yourself since they have our social security numbers from that fake DocuSign pdf. We all should have known better from the start after the fact that the phone interview was some random Indian guy and Emma Griffin, also Indian always sounded quiet and unsure whenever you talked to her…

Initial means of contact Email

Will initially contact you through email under name(s) Alvina Smith, Emma Griffin, or Courtney Bennett. Will have you sign and send a DocuSign which essentially gives up your social security number. You will begin to receive packages (outgoing address will usually have a Russian name and Wisconsin address) for a 4 week duration. At the end of probationary period you will receive an email stating that within 7-10 business days you will receive a paper check, and once a permanent employee, will receive through direct deposit if desired. Weeks will go by and you will NOT receive a check, if you inquire, HR will say they are “overloaded” and to wait a few more days. Then nothing again. Then they will finally stop emailing you altogether without paying you anything and with their stolen items that you were the “middle man” for already gone and delivered to God knows who.

Total money lost $50

Type of a scam Employment

Back in July 2020, I was putting out many applications on Indeed, and though this was one of the plethora I was waiting to hear back from. I received an email, and thought really nothing of it. I emailed back, a phone interview was scheduled, waited to hear back in three days if I got the job, and I got it. They told me what I’d be doing. I would be on a probationary basis the first month. At the end of the month they stated an examination would occur to see if I was eligible for a full time position. They sent me information for my supervisor, and payroll, which I had to fill out a W-2 tax form, and I also gave them pictures of my License and Social security card, and a year long contract was signed. They stated a one payment check would be sent to me for the amount of $2,700 on the 26th of August for working Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. Only full employees held on after the probationary period could receive direct deposits. (Also, I’d be reimbursed for gas and materials used for work such as a printer, phone, camera, printer paper, ink, packing materials, and time spent working after hours.)

What my job required of me is receiving packages, checking the packages for damaged content, taking pictures to upload for the customers, repackaging with materials I bought, printing out a new packing list and shipping label sent to me through their employee website called (Echo-crm.net), and sending them to FedEx/UPS…I would then upload pictures of the receipt and new tracking number. The items I received varied from a side table, a wine thermos, Victoria secret panties, electronics suck as apple/mac products, and amazon items. I kept in touch with my supervisor who was super friendly and helpful throughout this whole process.

I didn’t suspect a thing until the end of the month of August when HR emailed me saying the probationary time was ended, and they would take 7-10 business days to hear back from me. I got a weird urge to confirm I would still have the one year contract as a part time employee, which they kind of hinted at when they first hired me. Their reply said if I didn’t get the full time position, I would not be working at their company.

Confused, I started to search for job opportunities just in case I didn’t get the position, but I was so sure I would because I did everything by the book and held great communication with my supervisor. I waited 2-3 days past the initial 7-10 business days and still no reply. My check also didn’t appear in the mail. Worried, I contacted HR and asked to speak with her over the phone instead of email like I usually did, but replied that she might have time later that day and asked what I wanted to speak about. I told them there was a problem with my paycheck and I wanted to know the status of my decision of full time employment. HR told me there was a delay in gathering a conclusion, and they were sorry, and to contact payroll. She gave me the payrolls number, which I called during business hours. It just went to voicemail. So I left a message and emailed them. I didn’t hear back from them for almost a day and a half. I emailed HR and told them my problem, and how worried I was because I needed to pay bills and survive. I was trying to survive off of what money I had left in my bank account from my previous job, and what I had saved…but it was quickly dwindling to a measly $5.

Come September 10th, I asked if there was any way they could direct deposit my check into my account and cancel the one mailed to me. My suspicions were through the roof at this point. I talked with friends and family members who told me to contact them back and threaten to go to the police if I don’t get my money…So I did. I threatened to go to the police with all of the information I gathered from my time working for them if I didn’t get my money because nobody was replying and how I was suspicious of their company being a scam… When I said that, I got a rude reply from HR (Which is so unlike anyone in the roll of HR to say. She was being very defensive and not taking up for me at all), and payroll replied asking me to give the check more time and it could come as late as the 14th- 27th of September, and they were sorry for the odd delay. I said I would give it more time. It’s now the 14th, and I’m very scared that once two final packages are taken care of, I’ll be kicked out of the system and I’ll have no evidence to share with investigators. I’m going to go to the police with this information as well just in case.

The two packages I am still working to receive had complications because one didn’t have my correct full address. The second package I wasn’t even supposed to receive due to the mini vacation they gave me until I heard back in regards to my full time position. This one came when I wasn’t home.

I have shipping labels, emails, phone numbers, the website they are working on with these "employees", addresses and names of where the shipments are coming from and going to… I really want to solve this so nobody else gets hurt like I am. I’m about to become homeless, and hopefully I have a place to go the end of this month.

I really thought this was an actual business. I looked up their website and read articles…I couldn’t find anything bad, but the information was very vague.
