11/10/04:  Alert

Please be suspicious if anyone wants to hire you to reship packages.   This is the newest scam on the Internet.  Organized crime in Eastern Europe advertises for employees to receive packages and to reship them overseas.    The person 'hired' is to be paid per package shipped.   The problem is that the merchandise (laptops, expensive cameras, etc)  are purchased from stores like Staples and Office Max over the phone with stolen credit cards  The person 'hired' is now part of a world-wide money laundering scheme.

Here's a story about the crime and a variation of this has occurred in Cumberland County

 

This is the Federal Trade Commission's Website with information about Internet Fraud..

Here's the Illinois Attorney General's Website with information about Internet Fraud.

The bottom line is that if you are asked to give your name, bank information, mailing address be suspicious!!!   If you think you're getting hired by a company to reship packages- Be Careful!

If you have questions, feel free to call us and we'll be happy to assist you.
