Easy work if you can get it. Of course, anyone who responds will be qualified, because this is an unmitigated scam. An extract from a Post Office PDF file:

WHY IS RESHIPPING A PROBLEM?
These complex scams usually involve several crimes. Some criminals purchase merchandise with stolen credit cards and need your help to smuggle the goods out of the country. Others send you counterfeit money orders or checks and ask you to
reship them to another address. You’ll be given counterfeit postage to reship the illegal items.

RESHIPPING IS A CRIME!

You’re committing several felonies when you help these criminals. And even if you don’t get caught, it’s likely you’ll lose a lot

of money.

Be careful out there. The bigger the world gets, the more unsavory, disreputable and heartless individuals there are who will stop at nothing and stoop to anything to get your money by illegal means. A more complete list of mail fraud schemes can be found in this USPS publication.

The Old Wolf has spoken.

  2. This is one of several ‘scam’ companies setup for Identity Theft, Illegal Purchase of Goods, Illegal Shipment of Stolen Goods, and an Employment scam by the same outfit. The seemingly ‘legal’ paperwork for the Employment Scam is identical for all ‘scam’ organizations. The setup of http://www.online-logistics.us site to track incoming and outgoing shipments is part of the scam – where the ’employee’ thinks all is legit. Even calls from the ‘Manager’ are made to the ’employee’ to cover the ‘scam’! http://www.shipuusa.com. and http://www.logisticsiforwarding are setup by the same scammers. By (30) days when the first check is due to the ’employee’…all activity stops and they make sure all packages are shipped. The websites are setup through a Chinese company who knows of the scams, and the servers are in the Ukraine. Each new ‘Company’ is setup with stolen corporate identities so that when searched, they seem fully credible. The FL Sce. of State knows of the scams and does not shut down these sites and put out Alerts! The use of the corporate name, addresses, etc. is false – why these companies are not demanding more aggressive action from the FL State Gov. and US Gov. is beyond me! The phone numbers used for both the ’employee’ and ‘customers’ are forwarded offshore. The shipping labels are manipulated to seem credible. Several online stores are used to purchase high-end goods, and major shipping companies are used to ship the products in ways to cover the fraud. WHY THE FED GOVERNMENT ACTS SO SLOWLY TO SHUT THESE SITES DOWN IS APPALLING! http://www.shipuusa.com and http://www.logisticsiforwarding sites are both operating today, and others are being contacted for ‘work at home’ scams, as well!
