After posting a resume on an online job bank, one Wisconsin consumer received an offer from an alleged Wisconsin-based military support company, Work4Troops, also known as Help4Troops. The organization offered to hire her as a volunteer to package goods for men and women in the armed forces stationed abroad. She was told she would receive $20 per package sent.

But when a man in Chicago called her to say goods purchased with his stolen credit card were being sent to her address, she called the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau to check into the company, said Susan Bach, communications director for the Wisconsin BBB.

Work4Troops lures unsuspecting consumers into aiding shipment of stolen merchandise abroad, Bach said.
