I applied and was told to check in at least twice a week for a month. I did that and was "hired." I received packages, printed out the prepaid labels and shipped the packages from the post office. After the first package shipped, it did not show up when I used the USPS tracking device. I was accused of not shipping it "for real" because there was no record of it being received by the post office. I went to the post office and asked them what happened to the package. It was then I learned that shipping labels printed online cost less and provide less tracking information. When it's taken to the post office the person who handles it initially does not mark it received as would occur when a package is paid for at the post office. I also learned about the difficulty of shipping to Russia and recommended that hey insure all future packages. They did not head my words. My manager seemed totally unaware of the lack of tracking with online labels and when I reported this just reminded me how fortunate I was not to have had to pay for the shipping.
I'd been told payment was every 2 weeks and eagerly looked forward to payday as I continued to ship and track packages. I was asked to open a bank account, but instead asked them to use my PayPal account.
Payday arrived , but I didn't receive any money. I asked for the total amount I would be receiving and exactly when I would receive it.
My manager at first seemed surprised that I expected it, but did respond with a calculation and told me I would receive my pay after the first package arrived.

Ms. Bastiane Folstad,
The amount was far less than the $600 a week I had signed on for, but I decided to stick it out until I collected the $490.
The first package was delivered in RUSSIA, about a week later, where all the packages were sent. The post office had told me there were often problems shipping to Russia, which is why it took so long.
I then again asked for my pay, which I had not received and told my manager I would have to suspend delivery services until it was received. I had one package at this time in my possession. I was asked to continue tracking and then told I couldn't be paid until the other packages were delivered. I continued tracking and 3 more packages were delivered. I was sent 1 more package after I asked them NOT to send me any more packages. One package is listed as having passed customs in Russia, but has not been delivered. The location of three packages I shipped is unknown. I have filed inquiry's with the Post Office and they are investigating, but there is still no tracking information. One package they reported shipping to me, which never arrived at my destination. They have not paid me for any of the work I did and have now accused me of stealing not only the two packages which I notified them had been delivered and that I would ship as soon as I received payment for my services, but all the lost packages.
I worked for them for a month, which at the minimum salary I was first offered would have been $2400. I would be glad to return the 2 packages I have if they would just pay me the $490.
I want to warn anyone who is considering working for this company; Do not work for them, you will not get paid!
