Hope you're having a pleasant day today
You contacted me applying for the position which I advertised on Craigslist. Do take time to go through this introductory mail and feel free to pass any questions on.
My profile briefly:
I'm John Harrison, 50, and a father of 2 wonderful kids, a successful entrepreneur and investor, a member of the Angel Investment Network. I'm also a research journalist and I travel every now and then within and outside the US working on various independent projects, this is why I need someone who can help keep up to date with all of my activities especially when I'm away and amidst my busy schedule.
I have had a previous PA who has been very commendable in her activities and who has been part of my life for the past 6 months, she has since moved on with her personal life and it has affected me in a way. I found her previously on the craigslist website and I sincerely hope I will be able to find someone again who will be as efficient as she has been.
Please note that you are being hired only on a personal level. All correspondences would be made and promptly reported to me personally. The position is part time and home-based meaning you can work most times from your home as long as you have a regular internet access. You are also hired on a trial basis for now until am able to see how well you fit in, this however does not affect your weekly wage.
Most of your activities will be carried out locally and most official packages will be delivered via posts. You will be actively involved in my personal, business and financial life. In summary, your activities as my assistant amongst other things will include;
* Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence;
* Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring;
* Organizing and maintaining diaries, memos and making appointments;
* Dealing with incoming email, faxes and post;
* Carrying out background research and presenting findings;
* A personal reminder for Schedules, programs, flights and keeping me up to date with them as they come up;
* Arranging travel and accommodation
* Carrying out specific projects and research;
* Taking on some of the my responsibilities and working more closely with management and other staff related to me;
* Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
* Handling and monitoring financial activities.
* Processing and taking charge of weekly payments and purchases.
* You will also be a part of my household and a helping hand to issues as they arise.
* General clerical activities.
Basic wage is $450 a week.
Any extra personal expenses (transport, gas, etc) incurred by you while on an errand or otherwise will also be reimbursed by me at the end of each working week.
This position is very flexible and it is difficult judging the exact number of hours you will be doing, just bear it in mind that there will be busier weeks than others with a steady pay. Working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, so I need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings. There is also a very sensitive issue on trust, dedication and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on.
This is only an introductory e-mail, as time goes on we should be able to arrange a proper meeting to get things started officially. I'm currently in England now for a project, however, I do have a number of things you could help me with immediately, prior to my arrival.
Due to the excessive number of responses to my Ad, do provide the following details about yourself for my personal record update and to filter applicants;
Full Contact Address (Not p o box Address)
Phone Number (H)
Phone Number (M)
Occupation (if any)
I hope you can be available for me immediately before I arrive, it certainly can act as a stable foundation to our impending working relationship.
Hope to hear from you again.

How are you doing today? I hope you are having a great time, I am pleased to inform you that the funds for the orphanage has been sent and you will be getting it any moment from now via FedEx courier service. Here is the tracking number log on to www.fedex.com/us to trace the package [protected], the amount on the pay check is $4330 and it has been sent to your home address, so ensure you stay at home so you can sign for the delivery of the package and proceed with your first assignment.
However, I contacted the orphanage home and I was given the list of the items needed, The items are much and it will cost a lot of money to get them shipped, so we have reached an accord. They will be getting the items themselves and I was also told that one of the kid was admitted in the hospital and need attention on a surgery, all you need do is just to receive the payment, have it cashed at your bank deduct your $450 for the week and $50 for gas, then you have the remaining funds sent via western union money transfer to the orphanage home.
Below is the Orphanage Western Union information to send the funds..
Receiver's Name: REUBEN JOSEPH
Address: 150 Broadway, 12th Floor,
City: New York,
Zip code: 10036
when sending the funds, ensure you send it using the money in minute option.
Kindly get back to me with the ful details you used in sending the money, like Western Union MTCN #, the Total Amount sent, and the Sender's Name and Address as soon as you have the funds sent.
I will be waiting to read back from you Asap and I also have some other assignment for you to be done.
I want you to be rest assured that I'll never stress you at all in any assignment given to you and I promise to pay your fee weekly as we both agreed.
Take good care of yourself and have a blessed day.

Good morning and what the hell do you mean, I sent you a check that will screw you up or what, who the hell is the person that tells you such ###.

For one, you have no right what-so-ever to talk to me like that. I may be 18, but i am not stupid. How do you give me a check thats dated before we even spoke? ###? I believe so, Reuben Joseph showed up as a attorneys office in New York. the bank on tha check was barely reachable, & you will not have me putting fake money into a bank account (which I dont have, thanks for asking)just so you can attempt to what?... clear out the account? You wont have the pleasure of doing so. By the way, You didnt even tell me the correct amount for the check.
Status of the payments: The check hasn't even been tried.
So therefore, no payments have been made.
You can speak to your attorney.. I could careless.
On another note.. if you were in "England", how did you get back to NJ so quick to send this fraudelant check?
THE PATHETIC IDIOT HASNT WROTE BACK YET.. BUT IM REALLY INTERESTED TO KNOW WHAT HE WILL SAY NEXT.
