    This is not the same as a new member who signs up and starts spamming us from day-1.

    Davis is one of the longest-standing PE members, dating back to the PE Version 1 (Yahoo) days - and he's been a good friend to PE for all of that time.

    I'm not going to delete this thread, but I'd urge Davis to provide a brief explanation of what the link is about...
    Regards,

    Indeed. Surely davis can understand why anyone reading that initial post would be suspicious?

    In any case, I don't care how bona fide a member davis is, I don't click on links without some explanation of why I might find the link interesting or worthwhile.

    7. We check, double check and re-check everything, every client, every
    transaction, every payment, and every package. We proceed nothing but
    legal merchandise, from verified vendors.

    8. Considering our field of work, we have lots of discounts at big
    online stores for our employees, but this option is available only
    after trial and only then I will provide you with list of vendors
    where special discounts for us are available.

    Few words about our business: we simply occupied this part of marked
    where some vendors can’t ship abroad, or customers can’t order
    items,because not everyone knows English, and we do it for them, and
    do in best possible way. Why this position is distant? It is less
    expensive to have self-organized net of workers, who can work from
    home, provide best service at their own convenience, instead of
    renting hangars and warehouses for the packages, vehicles, drivers,
    there are always lots of orders, by working this way we can spend our
    time with best efficiency, working full-time or part-time, being with
    family and doing home stuff. You will be receiving step by step
    guidance and support for the first month of employment. Below you can
    see a brief description of your future duties:

    and name of the customer.

    you got it and ready to receive the package. (just answer on my email
    with words : acknowledged).

    3. You need to notify me every time you receive the packages. (just
    answer on my first email with words : package received)

    4. After receiving your confirmation I will send you Pre-paid shipping
    label with instructions how to use it and proceed the package.

    5. When shipping label is printed and affixed on the package you need

    off, Email me back with words - package sent. *Please note that
    packages must be proceeded to USPS within 48 hours after you received

    No. I wouldn't take it up. I never heard of anybody getting a "job" that way that was not some kind of scam.

    Scanning that text, the whole thing looks cobbled together by someone whose English is not too good, It reads sloppily Now, not speaking English is not a crime, but I think a genuine professional company would take the trouble to get a native English speaker to proof read it and improve the style.

    Has it not occurred to you that this could very easily be a way of setting you up as a "mule" to receive prohibited imported goods? This could land you in gaol - or worse.
