Warning about Russian e-mail scam

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  If you get an e-mail offering you a job to ship and re-ship products to Russia, it's a scam. The Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin says companies which call themselves "Send It Off" and "Pick-and-Send" are recruiting people to work-at-home, but they don't get paid. The bureau says the scammers are using a downtown Milwaukee office address, and three local phone numbers which are voice-over-Internet numbers. The consumer agency said it could not reach company personnel through any of those numbers. Those who take the bait could be at risk for identity theft.

The bureau said people in Missouri and Kansas who took jobs as shippers were required to send copies of their drivers' licenses. They were then sent things like I-Pads to send to Moscow, with a promise of $1,700-a-month in wages that were never paid.

Also, job applications had spelling and grammatical errors.

The Better Business Bureau says to watch for those when you apply for a job -- and you should never accept a post that doesn't require a face-to-face interview.
