  2. Received an email and got different phone #s for several "hiring managers" as well as emails and names. I knew it was a scam from the get go, pumped them for as much info as possible, asked to speak to several managers, and now what do we do with that? Since I did not fall for it there's nothing to report. But I knew they are scammers.

  6. I have received and sent packages out for a month as of tomorrow and I get my first check tomorrow. I thought the same. But I was not asked for money up front and I was told to order boxes from usps paid for about 4 different sizes.

    1. Same here im supposed to get my pay today I've received and sent packages also for a month also. For some reason my dashboard isn't allowing me to login. I've been contacting them trying to reach out to let them know but no one is answering anymore. Normally they would answer or call me back quick now I'm getting no replies.

  8. I have been working with them for a month now and I was told my paycheck would be sent to my account yesterday and now I still have not received a payment. I have attempted to call all the phone numbers that was provided to me and now no one is answering. Now I guess It is a scam but they have my Bank info that was supposed to be used to deposit my paycheck. Now WTF do I do. 🤬

  12. Don,t send them the package they won’t pay you they are scammers. Just protect your account and let the police know about it. They blocked me from the dashboard and suppose to be pay on 10/27/2023 and they also have my personal information.

  13. They did the same to me. They actually locked me out of my dashboard 2 days before my payday (11/02/23). They have a photo of my ID but no bank info. I still have about 4 packages that never got sent out and that are still just in my living room. How would I go about reporting them?
