Company Representative scams, Payment Processing scams and other Employment scams.
#178201 by Joey615 Mon Oct 07, 2013 2:44 pm
After 5 weeks of freight forwarding items to Russia, and not getting paid, I decided to do some research and have found out this is a scam. After doing some research of the items I've sent, it was 39 assignments with a value of goods of approximately $25,000. What do I do? Will I be arrested for sending these items?

Here are the relevant emails, etc.
