 Quality Focus Group is a very organized shipping scam. 

 Shipping items to the Russian Federation mainly.

 I was hired to QC products to determine the condition that products were shipped to you & to ship them from different postal locations in your area, to determine how timely packages from different Post Office shipped overseas. They have this down to a science and paid well (even describing the pay breakdown of what was owed to you including the bonuses for shipping within 24 hours of receiving the shipping label. 

 I was told that there would be a tracking number (as with all items shipped) to track my check.  This never occurred and all communication ceased when it was time for me to be paid.  They offered direct deposit, which I declined.

 There is a control panel that you send all reports thru and receive all information pertaining to shipment and messages.  You take pictures of items shipped to you, write a report, and wait for the shipping label.  Once received, you print out the shipping label, send a report of the shipping and a picture of the label.

 There was an application for employment after receiving your resume.  There is an Employment contract, which began the 25th of April for me.  Also was a driver’s license ID required.

 Most items came from Walmart, Best Buy’s, Sears etc.  Items such as, "Barnes & Noble" Nooks,  I Pads, I Phones, Sneakers, PS3, Telephoto Zoom Lens, to name a few.  All shipping labels and invoices were to be taken out of boxes. Which I still have. Packages were shipped to me in different names including my own & I was told by Michael Nelson that these were dummy accounts set up by their clients for the purpose of reports being made to find out how the companies were shipping merchandise & the condition it came to the consumer.

 Near the end of the end of the month my mother received two bills for two packages that came in her name & that is when we began to realize that we might be victims of fraud. I tried to contact the company and got a vague response. I began researching the company again the began to see fraud posting for the company that did not show up a month before. There were no negative reports posted on the Internet search engines until May 30th. All indications were that this was a legitimate information seeking company.

I to have reported this to ic3.gov. From this point on I would like to leave it to them to try to catch Mr Nelson. To be honest this entire experience has made me very leary about connecting with parties that are unknown to me on the internet. From this pint on I will only respond to legal authorities in regard to prosecuting Quality Focus Group & Mr Micheal Nelson. Good luck with your efforts in bringing him to justice on your.

I see your from New Jersey, And I want to say i think this mike guy had me send some packages to you. I discovered that when mike told me i would be getting a check, it was originally coming from a place in douglasville GA, wich is one of the addresses that he had me send some packages to, when the check came it was actually not a check but a bunch of invoices, it apears that another guy was recieving MY packages ontop of getting his own lot of "NEW" stuff. so i looked over some of the addresses and notice that out of every "group" of packages he had me send out, always had ONE box to Another country. and yesterday i got a bill from FedEx wanting me to pay for all these out of country shipments for $300+ each. (i disputed it and then explained that i filed a complaint with ic3.gov and that might have been a victim of identify fraud and to make sure they noted my account/address in thier records in case i get billed for more packages.

I wonder if what he is doing is having us send out our backages to each other (like hot potato) but with every time we ship out he makes us do one package out of country, this maybe allows them to not deal with customs because its a bunch of little packages being sent over instead of one huge package. the scam might just be customs, not even considering f the mechandise is legit. its possible this guy sells hundreds of thousands of dollars in legit mechandise but he get it out of US by doing this scam to avoid customs and fees.  it could also be Credit card fraud. I tried to contact some od the people that have been billed for the stuff but with no luck yet. (i still have all my invoices from teh packages he had me remove)

WE should all start a facebook group or something and compare notes and addresses, and names to see if we can get anything, so that way if the authorities do get involved we can say "here is what we have found"? if anyone is interested in looking me up to compare  you can reach me at (((ROR redacted))) make sure you put  "mike nelson must be caught" in the subject line so i know who you are.
