Last week My Boss told me he had found a new opportunity, and if it worked out he’d turn me on to it.
This opportunity could make an extra $3,000 a month (who couldn’t use that?)
It seems he’d been talking to someone about shipping package overseas.
People in other countries want things from the US but can not get US companies to ship this stuff to them.
So the plan is this guy will have packages sent to my Bosses home. Where my Boss will repackage the stuff and ship it over seas. And then be paid handsomely for this.
This didn’t feel right and I started to warn my Boss to be careful of a scam but he assured me he’d checked it all out although he did admit there was one thing that made him wonder, (why not have this stuff shipped to his own house or warehouse?) but he was going to do it anyway to see what happens.
I’ve seen so many scams on the internet over the past 10 yrs I’ve been online I just don’t trust people handing out money for almost nothing.
Well I did some checking and sure enough it’s a scam.
When I first suggested it might be a scam my Boss became defensive. He is a bit arrogant and tends to underestimate me anyway.
So should I warn him or let him fall? Do I risk him getting mad at me because he’s been a fool and I now about it? Something he should have been a bit smarter then to get into.
I’ve thought of telling him anonymously but since I’m the only one his told he’d know it was me anyway.
His arrogant way makes me reluctant to approach him. I mean I could lose my job because he is embarrassed at being made a fool.
But if I let him sink knowing this is a scam I am I just as wrong? Or do I say he should of known better and keep my mouth shut?
