RE: This Job - Has Anybody Tried This?
I’d be worried about what kind of shipments are being made and are they legal?

RE: This Job - Has Anybody Tried This?
I got involved in something similar several years ago and it was a scam. Essentially, criminals use stolen credit card data, have items they fraudulently purchased shipped to your address, and they then provide you with paid shipping labels for you to ship the product to another address, usually outside of the country. The items are typically high priced electronics.

When the authorities zero in on the fraudulent credit card activity, they come knocking on your door.

Steer clear of this "job offering", it's almost certainly bogus.

You should totally do it OP. Just be sure to come back and tell us if it was all worth it when you're on parole in 5 or 10 years.

Like PT Barnum said, another liberal sucker is born every minute.

How did you get out of it? Did you have to blow a few officers?

RE: This Job - Has Anybody Tried This?
I got into something like that. Depositing and cashing checks, then forwarding the money on and keeping 10% as pay. I refused to send funds until their incoming checks had cleared. Which usally takes 10 - 14 days. That saved me from being ripped off for 10's of thousands of$$$

All that happened was my bank held all my checks until they
fully cleared. My bank also charged for the checks that had been
presented for cashing. I'd told them what I was going to do. We were all very careful.

Money-Laundering Scams

Internet money laundering "is just a huge problem," says Susan Grant, director of Internet Fraud Watch at the National Consumers League in Washington, DC. "In fake-check scams, people are losing several thousands of dollars at a pop."

Money launderers often create job postings that say they're recruiting American citizens to "process payments" or "transfer funds," because as foreign nationals, they can't do it themselves. Their communications sometimes contain broken grammar but may include well-written prose from legitimate employers' postings.

If a job seeker responds to a fraudulent ad, the scammer will usually write back immediately, saying that the seeker is the perfect candidate and offering a job. Then the scammer usually requests the victim's bank account number or other personal information. "Nobody legitimate would hire you to use your personal bank account to process these things," says Grant.

If victims cooperate, they will use their personal bank accounts to move stolen or bad checks, planning to keep a percentage as their pay on the scammers' instructions. If the scam involves legitimate funds, the victims are never able to hold onto them. In fact, money-laundering victims may be liable to their own banks for depositing the scammer's rubber checks.

"Almost always, the money the victims are transferring is stolen, and therefore, the victims are committing theft," writes Pam Dixon in a report for World Privacy Forum.

And remember: "If any reasonable person would have asked questions and you didn't, you could go to prison for 20 years," Rietbroek says.

Reshipping Fraud

Reshipping, or postal forwarding, scam victims are typically offered an at-home job that involves repackaging stolen goods -- frequently consumer electronics -- and forwarding them, often outside the United States. Scammers ask victims to shell out their own shipping charges, and pay reimbursement and compensation with a fake check.

In addition to seeing their own paychecks bounce, those who fall for reshipping scams may be liable for shipping charges and even the cost of goods purchased online with stolen credit cards.

How can the victims be criminally liable? For starters, they handled goods that were stolen and followed scammers' instructions to lie on US Customs Service forms if they forwarded packages abroad.
