I was contacted by a person named Amanda Kim, who claimed to be the supervisor for direct 2 troops, through me resume which I posted on the internet via Yahoo and Monster, she said that I was a good candidate for their program because I am a veteran.
The their service they provided was aimed at our troops that are over seas, I checked them out and they seemed to be legit.
I send them a signed "contract" and with in a few days the packages started to arive, the only thing I needed to do was unpack and repackage them in larger packages and send them of to an address in the Ukraine.
I thought was very strange, as far as I know that would be about the last place one can find American troops, I asked the question as to why there and decided not to forward the packages, but the only answer that I got was silence, in the mean time more packages arrived, and started to pile up.
I remembered that the contract read that if I did not forward the packages in a timely matter, they could with hold my pay, so I send them through.
The packages included female underwear, a sled, a Swankofsky Crystal box that still had the price tag on it ($750.00), what are they going to do with this in the battle field, etc.
I still have the names and addresses from the "donors" that send their packages directly to me, then it became time to get paid, I made a whopping $180.00 for that month.
I asked Amanda when pay day was, and the minute I asked, the packages stopped coming, she said that we needed to set up a direct deposit account with my bank, I said okay, and faxed her a canceled check, nothing was deposited for three weeks.
Then the bank contacted me and asked me if I was expecting a rather large deposit from something or an other, I said that I was expecting a deposit from direct 2 troops for the amount of $180.00.
The bank person said that some one tried to deposit $968.00 into my bank account, I told her that I wasn't expecting any of the sort, she said that was good because it was stolen money from an other account from the same bank!!
I told her to send the money back to the rightful owners and that I didn't want anything to do with it.
I e-mailed that to Amanda but all communications fell silent, that is until a couple of day later when a police officer knocked on our front door, it seemed that the direct 2 troops had used our address as a "buffer address" meaning if anything would be traced by the post office or other enforcement agencies, they would knock on my door first.
the officer suggested, as did the bank, to change all our accounts, checking, savings, and bank credit cards, what a hassle. I decided to report this company to the VA, and the VA for what it is, of course no response, what else is new?
I can not find Direct 2 troops anymore, which is good.
I hope this help
