I need of money (due to lack of employment and necessities) and wouldn’t normally consider this. A trusted friend has told me he has a business connection who needs legal documents delivered to another country. They say it’s so important they don’t trust a company, like Purolator or FedEx to get it done. They are willing to pay for my flight upfront and will pay me once I bring them the receipt of delivery. I’m skeptical. I’d be bringing this sealed document into another country, and asked and they said I can’t see inside but can hold a flash light up to it. Is there any other precautions I can take to make sure it doesn’t contain anything illegal like drugs?
Apparently it’s for a legitimate business (I looked them up) but the contact used sent me an email through Gmail, which makes me suspicious. EDIT: I was mistaken, I'm not sure if I can find them online as they have a name that is very similar to other companies. Also they now say I can look inside the parcel. Also they advise me to take Uber which someone pointed out is suspicious as it's unmarked. Also they said I'm supposed to act like I don't know what's in the package upon delivery. Again, I normally wouldn't give this a second thought if I didn't trust my friend so well, who swears up and down he doesn't see any red flags about this...makes me question my friendship :(
