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.
