In late January I recieved an email from a company named US Postal emporium. They were recruiting people who wanted to stay at home and be part of an international mail forwarding company. They claimed a salary of $38,000 per year for recieving packages and forwarding them on to the buyer with the first check coming 30 days after the first box shipped. I did some research and found the website www.usapostalemporium.com. I called the 800 number and spoke to someone about the company and payment/salary procedures. I sent an email asking for more info regarding the position. I was met with a return email from the "support" team and was told I should fill out an application, an I-9, and a W-4 and fax it back. Several days later I recieved an email from "support" stating I had been assigned to David Palanski as a manager, and within 7 days packages would start arriving. I then got another email with attachments for instructions and a guide book. It all seemed legit, and true to form, 7 days later my first parcel arrived via UPS. I followed the instructions in the guide book and printed the shipping labels and dropped the box at the USPS. 8 parcels in all have arrived since then, and today 2/15/2011, is where the problem finally came to light.
A FedEx delivery was made to my address on 2/15/2011, I followed procedures to open the parcel, photograph the contents, upload the photos on the "shipping panel" link, and print the pre-paid shipping labels, and was scarcely done doing so before the driver for FedEx returned asking for the parcel and informing me that the package had been fraudulently purchased with a stolen credit card. I tried contacting the "support" team to no avail, tried contacting the manager to no avail, and tried the 800 number on the website, which is no longer in service.
Other reports on line claim this company is an organized crime ring out of the Eastern Block countries. I am inclined to believe so seeing as all the packages have been high dollar electronics being forwarded to the Ukraine or Russia.
I am contacting the local authorities and ceasing all communications and affiliations. I highly reccommend doing so as well, before the Police, FBI, and US Customs shows up on your doorstep.
If you have been participating, do yourself a favor and keep copius notes and printouts of shipping labels, emails, "chat" communication on the "shipping panel", and photos of the contents of the parcels you are forwarding. Oh yeah, you might want to call the local authorities before your house gets raided for "international fraud" and "fencing of stolen goods".

You Shoulda Seen It Coming

AUTHOR: Larry - (U.S.A.)

So, someone you never met and whose location you cannot verify sends you an email offering you $38,000 a year to forward packages overseas to people you do not know and you fell for it.

How many red flags have to go up before you figure out it is a scam?
