They emailed me offering a work from home job. They would send packages to my home for me to take pictures of and repackage them to be shipped out to the people they belonged to.
Its a scam
Everyone, please file a complaint of Wellfern to the FBI by using the link below. I linked this page of these reports here in the complaint that I had sent them. I hope this helps our situation somehow.
I tried contacting all of these people who had positive testimonials on the wellfern website when it was up but noone has replied.
Wow. I had no idea there were this many other people who were scammed too. I reported to the federal trade commission and labor board. Not sure if that did any good. Their website is down now and their phone numbers are disconnected.
The same exact thing happened to me... What can we do about this? I went to the post office investigation people and they kind of blew me off and didn’t seem to care. They didn’t ask me for any info or anything to investigate this crime. They just told me to watch my credit, which I put a freeze on months ago. If anyone has any ideas on what to do, let me know.
Scam, the same exact thing happened to me i never got paid. And it was all the same peaple, rhoda, karen , and Donna. I had a feel6it was a scam because every package that I received always had sum random name on it and never mine, but when I would receive the new shipping labels to ship off the packages my name would be on them,, I should have known I'm not to much worried about the check that I never recieved I'm more worried about my info that they now have SS, date of birth ect.
Hi my name is Rose Tilus I’m from Florida I work for wellfern for a month they didn’t pay me please don’t trust them they most likely fraude they got all my information but still don’t pay me I’m thinking of getting a lawyer cause it’s been 2 months from 9 to 5 Monday to Friday no money ,they have 2900 to give me that’s crazy I’m sad I’m scared I’m worry I didn’t know I don’t want to go to jail im hurt
Did everyone here keep records of packing and ship labels, photographs of content? Relevant transaction details? All of my returns were FedEx ground, though I received product from multiple carriers. Did anyone keep the transcripts from Karen Abston. For whatever value it may provide, I kept every detail of this relationship. If anything comes of an investigation, it could be useful
I have everything from finish to start I plan to file and FBI report tomorrow I still have packages that came from whoever they really are.
Yes I have everything however I’m worry about my social

Ms. Angelia Gwenn Jones, Owner
If I remember correctly, Ms. Angelia Gwenn Jones name was on one of the docs that I received. Or I could have found it when I started researching after I realized it was scam.
Who is Angela Gwen ?
I too had the EXACT same experience as everyone who has posted-exact details. I even did my do-diligence in looking up the company and saw reviews and articles from reputatble sources about Wellfern making it look like a very real and reputable company. The phone number that I was given by Rhonda also matched the numbers to Wellfern.
I too was interviewed by Rhonda Spence, and another man, whose name escapes me right now. The payroll gal was Donna Clayton and Karen Abston as my "curator" as well. It is very concerning because they make it look so legit. They go through the hiring process like other legitimate businesses. They are very convincing about reimbursement for supplies and the entire process! And they very sincere in explaining the process. Donna and Rhonda were very good at answering questions and very prompt in replying to emails. But now that it has been over 14 days and I have NOT received my check after the "probationary period" all correspondence has stopped. Donna is not returning any emails.
Most of the goods were new and packaged from the manufacturer and in one case sent from the actual manufacturer. There were some packages that appeared to come from EBAY sellers as well. So it all did look legit!
I actually really did a great job for them and they got a lot of work out of me for FREE, because I serviced over 35 packages.UGH!
I guess we all have to look at this as a learning experience and will certainly be more cautious in the future.
I will say too that I am VERY concerned about the fact that they have my personal info that was sent in on the W-9 form. That makes me sick to think about!

I too share the same angst as you. These people are scammers no doubt, but the fact that they have ID and SSN (W-9) is more worry-some. Contact your creditors and credit reporting agencies to let them know of potential fraud on your name. Forget about Wellfern. These [censored] just use that name as a cover. The danger will come from elsewhere

Type of a scam Employment
I was searching for employment so I decided to put my resume online through a site like jobs.com. This company emailed me about hiring me for employment. I was interviewed over the phone and then emailed when I was hired. They had me do a tax form and emailed me the conditions of my employment. Then once all my paperwork went through I was emailed again and given a persons name to be my curator while I was in training. I had to have an employee user name and password to get into the company website to get my orders and they also had all my instructions for my job on the site. I also talked to my curator on the phone to go over job details before starting. I was sent packages and was suppose to take pictures of the box and labels and then open it and take pictures of the product and report it to my curator if there were any damages, if not then I upload my pictures to my work website and then they upload a new shipping label and packing list for the product. I print those out and put the new packing list inside the box and put the new shipping label on the box and then take it to be sent out by whatever mailing company it said on the label, which was always fedex. Then I had to take a picture of the text message I was sent confirming that it was dropped off at a fedex place and upload that to the website. Then I was done with the order.
I had 17 orders. The first month was suppose to be a probationary month and then they were to do an evaluation over how well I did my job and then decide whether they were going to hire me full time. They were suppose to send me my check after the one month, which was July 20th 2020 and I have not recieved a paycheck yet. They also have told me whether I was hired full time or not.
I have had the exact same experience as Monica Brown but I began on 7/1. I am currently on my "7th" day waiting for a check to arrive. I have screenshots of the same information. I have a Karen Abston as my "curator. A Donna Clayton as payroll and Rhonda Spence as the HR rep.
I started working for Wellfern on 07/02/2020 on my probationary period I received emails calls and everything even til this day when my probationary period ended on 08/02/2020 I was suppose to receive my first paycheck on 08/03/2020 which I didn't so I emailed [email protected] and as about it which she sent me a email stating it was sent out on 08/03/2020 and it will take 7 business days to receive it and 10 days for Hr to review my performance which my so called curator Karen Abston was supposed to give them but on 08/10/2020 which would have made my 7th business day the day my check was suppose to come I receive a letter from the United States Postal Inspection Service saying that the whole job was a scam but in the letter it has my address wrong so I dont know who or what to believe I went on the website the letter provided https://www.uspis.gov/ and called a number and a man who was suppose to be a inspector gave me another number 18778762455 told me to press #5 and they would help but I've left voice messages and no response so I emailed the lady from [email protected] again asking what's going on and told her about the letter she told me it was a legit job and dont know why I received the the letter she told me to wait a few more days but I have no clue on what's going on but I quit my job because I thought that this was a legit job I was expecting to be able to pay my bills with the check I was suppose to receive on 08/10/2020 and get my kids some food but now I have nothing and my bills are due and I still have no answers. I did 19 orders in all and I still have two items that they didn't send me shipping labels for Im keeping everything for evidence.
Same thing happened to me
Where to start? I started “working” for Wellfern a month ago, with the first month being a probationary period. I received a total of 29 packages that I then sent out to other addresses. I spent money on supplies, and was expecting to be reimbursed. I thought I’d found the ideal job for me, until two days before my probation ended, I got a letter from the post office telling me this was a scam. Then I saw this other complaint about not getting paid. Needless to say, I haven’t heard anything from my contact at the company. So not only is it an employment scam, it’s highly illegal. All of the items were bought with stolen credit cards.
i started with receiving packages and then the next thing i know i received an expensive cell and the gentlemen reached out to my fiance regarding the phone. He was thinking we did it and then i spoke with him and told him no
