Scammers use Internet job boards to advertise receiving/reshipping jobs. You are asked to accept a package delivery and then re-mail it to a foreign address. The package you are receiving is usually filled with illegal goods that they want you to redeliver.
The company will usually want you to pay for the shipping. They will tell you that they will pay you back, but this is not true. If by chance they do give you payment, it is with a counterfeit check or money order.
If you are unsure of any money order payment you have received from any type of job, please verify that your money order is authentic.
You can do this by calling the Money Order Verification System at 1-866-459-7822.
