    Anyone have experience with one of these. Very Annoying, should have know something was up when I asked the guy with a strong Russian accent, where he is from and he said Oregon, then I asked him where he was from originally and repeated Oregon.

    Maybe he told you the truth, and you kept asking the same question. What's wrong with you?
    How does exactly a Russian accent sound like...are a linguist?

    To be 100% honest, I would not talk business with anyone having any accent, without knowing that person first. I am a hypocrite, cause I speak with accent too. I had a number of calls from India offering dispatch services...I had hard time understanding them. I told them about it...and also about that I don't trust them...They could also, double broker.
    you were right about being careful...now when I think about it.
    Those who double broker are pigs!

    Accents(stress, intonation, ... also there is one more component what I call the vowel music) from all over Eastern Europe is hard to decipher into a specific country...For instance, A Russian could have the same phonetically sounding accent as a any other Eastern Europe native but also Balkan Peninsula including Romanians and Greeks and ... let's go further south to Turkey, Egypt (all Arabs) and Israel too.
    Somehow, the poor Russians have to take all the beating for everything. It ain't fair at all...

    Er könnte aus Oregon stammen, dort wurde früher viel Deutsch gesprochen.

    There’s a ton of languages in the US, a lot of Polish spoken in Chicago, does that mean they’re not citizens?

    My brokerage was just scammed. Scammers impersonated and stole the identity of a carrier who is legit and then did the same with a brokerage and brokered it out to a carrier who thought nothing was wrong because it was a legit brokerage.

    They wanted quick pay and then disappeared. Carrier delivered and was never paid by the scammed brokerage.

    I have stopped all quick pay as the 3 times I’ve been screwed over the last few years has been this every time.

    Yes, I paid the real carrier plus an extra $500 more then I was even paid. So a $900 load cost me $2300 to move.

    Yay.

    It feels like they call me everyday, offering "services"... A prostitute earns more respect.
    Also, text me.... Even after this thread started, I got a call...yes, foreign accent but not Russian.
    I was offered a flat fee load matching service. I think I lost it and said a few bad words. My message to them was they would f...off them leeches. It was fun to say it...Typically, I try to stay civilized but that's too much to take...these leeches must think they can suck my blood for the privilege to find me a C.H.R or TQL load.
    For various repairs, I coughed up measly 12 grand in the last 3 weeks alone...and they still want something from me.
