The Better Business Bureau serving Northern Indiana said Monday it has received several reports about a fraudulent employment scheme posted online by In Shopping LLC.

Consumers are reporting that the company hires them to ship packages from home but does not pay them.

The BBB advises that residents who have concerns about the employment practices of this business should file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov.

The Better Business Bureau said it has also received consumer complaints about online shopping fraud by Kool Kids Toys LLC.

Consumers have complained that products they have ordered and paid for online have not been delivered. The BBB said the company is no longer communicating with customers or the bureau.

Consumers with similar complaints should file them with the Indiana attorney general at www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/ and the Federal Trade Commission or call 877-382-4357.
