ImageNet Consulting Decides To Pocket Employee’s Stimulus Checks

The Lost Ogle has a great post about the actions of one Oklahoma City company, ImageNet Consulting, that has decided that their employees don’t need paychecks due to the govt surplus checks.

It was also covered by KXAN – but they wouldn’t name and shame like The Lost Ogle did. There is also a Reddit post here with comments and other links.

Oh, they even want half of the $500 per kid stipend too!

If your company is trying to do something similar to you – contact a lawyer that specializes in employment law ASAP.

Update: The company appears to be trying to purge articles, blog posts, etc about their actions from the web and various search engines.

‘Official’ Documents Fraud: “Records Division” dmpoptout.com, Direct Mail Processing LLC

Got an interesting bit of mail today, pretending to be ‘time sensitive’ ‘second notice’ ‘important documents’:

The Envelope

The from is ‘Records Division’, P.O. Box 2910, Kennesaw, GA 30156-9843.

Inside, there was a document labeled ‘T-2’ and titled ‘2020 Benefit Information For Idaho Citizens Only’.

The Insert Meant To Look Like A Tax Document

Looks an awful lot like an IRS or state tax document, right?

Of course, after all of the official looking (but fake) text, they include ‘Not affiliated with or endorsed by any government agency.’ in small letters.

There’s also a web address, dmpoptout.com.

Where To Send It To

This fake ‘tax’ document is supposed to be mailed back to Direct Mail Processing, LLC P.O. Box 100080, Kennesaw, GA 30156-9912.

A quick google of dmpoptout.com brings up some interesting background on this company. ScamPulse in particular has some interesting reports – most of them about misleading mailings targeting elderly victims.

dmpoptout.com makes dubious claims of not being involved with the scam mailings they are handling:

Protect yourself and your friends and family by making sure they can recognize these scams. As always, if you believe you have been the victim of a scam, contact your state’s consumer protection agency.
