NLR police warn of reshipping scams

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A new scam hits North Little Rock, landing folks a job as a middle man in a work-at-home shipping scheme.    

So far police know of at least one victim who shipped off around $20,000 worth of stolen goods.   

North Little Rock Police say this web is likely the work of foreigners. They use a Ukraine-based company, offering jobs online to get merchandise bought with stolen credit card numbers back their way.

"The shipping began back in March, we just learned about it the past few days," Detective Brandon Bennett said.

It's a new case for North Little Rock Police. And it's new territory for Detective Brandon Bennett.

"This is the first investigation I've been apart of in reference to the kind of work at home scams that are going on," Detective Bennett said.

It's a work-at-home scam recently turning up these stolen items at a North Little Rock home.
