On November 30, 2012, I received a welcome letter from John Taylor. He would be my manager.
He told me that I would be receiving parcels, to track them, be home to receive them, contact him and he would download the shipping label. He contacted me daily for two weeks.
After I sent out the parcels, he wanted to see the receit that I sent them, because he was adding a rush bonus of $25.oo to every parcel I handled quickly.
The first two parcels got to Russia. The third he said to check on. By that time I had sent out three more.
The third parcel was seized by Russian Customs, and the three 1 in Austri, one in Austrailia, One in Great Britain.
After I e-mailed him about the first parcel, I never heard from him again. I did not get any compensation.
I then looked on the web site and saw all of the blogs about their scams.
I contacted USPS and asked them to notify customs that this was a scam to get packages in countries illegally. They will have more information for me on January 20,2013.
I also notified the local police, and I would like some advice on taking further action to prosecute these men.
I also received an employment contract, filled out a W-4 form and sent them a copy of my driver's license.
There is just so much to tell you. I have kept every e-mail that I received from them.
I would be willing to accept phone calls from you, and provide you with copies of all the paperwork I have saved.
There web site is no longer there, and the phone number does not exist.
I will be happy to assist you in anyway to try to prosecute these men.
