By the time Scott Wilson realized how badly he'd been suckered, there was already a warrant out for his arrest and boxes of stolen Bibles piling up in his guest bedroom.To make matters worse, the criminals may "pay" their mules with fake or stolen cheques or funds transferred from compromised accounts. They may instruct workers to deduct their wages and wire a remaining amount via a money transfer service such as Western Union. Thus, workers may be roped into laundering money as well as receiving stolen goods.
Wilson had fallen victim to a reshipping scam, an Internet confidence crime authorities say costs retailers more than a half-billion dollars annually. Hired to send and receive packages, the 38-year-old Las Vegas father had unwittingly become a fence for stolen merchandise; his townhouse a depot of purloined goods.
It would take Wilson weeks to realize he'd been made a fool.
The job seemed legitimate, and so easy. Wilson would receive numerous small parcels in the mail. He would inventory the parcels and gather them into bigger boxes, cardboard behemoths he scoured from behind fast-food restaurants. Wilson would then ship the big boxes to someone else, whomever his bosses instructed.
Now he's a crime victim who's afraid of calling the cops because he's also a criminal dodging police.
