Gulf Shipping LInes Co.

The original email was about a position of employment, stating that they found my resume online (my resume is actually online, which made sense). This was a project manager position from a shipping company with a US office based out of New York. There was an initial training period of 4 weeks, consisting of a test each Friday. After completing the final test, you would get paid and if you passed all tests, you would them be offered a permanent position.Each day of the week, I would be emailed a new training packet. On Friday of each week, I would also be sent a test that would need to be completed and returned by the following Monday for grading. This happened every Monday – Friday for 4 weeks. After the 4th test, I then received a final test that covered all 4 weeks worth of material. It was completed and returned and I was told it would take a week for the final results to be graded.During this time, I was offered an "additional" project to work on for the company. I sent a purchase order for 5 iPhones to purchase and send to one of the companies offices in another country. They even went as far as to transfer $5,000 to my account to purchase these phones. My bank would not transfer the funds in immediately and I notified the company about this. I was told that it was ok and it sometimes takes a while. In the meantime, after I saw what they were wanting me to purchase, I made the decision to absolutely not do this. Eventually, the money was received in to my account. I did not spend the money and did not purchase and ship the phones. I never heard from the company again. Of course, after about a month, they took the money back out of my account. The website the company was using is now no longer in a valid address and the phone number is no longer valid.I have every email and conversation saved if they are needed.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on PropertyFraud.com, it is strongly advised to avoid Gulf Shipping LInes Co. in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Gulf Shipping LInes Co.. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike PropertyFraud.com, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Gulf Shipping LInes Co. is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
