Angel Investment Network / Personal Assistant scam

England, Greater London, United Kingdom Review updated:

BEWARE PEOPLE!!!

Have been in contact with this person only to find out today that it is a scam and sadly I have given over my cv details. This is the email that I got back.

Hello,
I just reviewed your resume/Career profile and contact details and i am accepting applications for a PA position available. I need PA to help me monitor and keep up to date with
all my activities.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 returned to her
country. I sincerely hope I will be able to find someone again who will be as efficient as she has been.

I'm Thomas Waldrom, 50 yrs of age, originally from London, UK. I spent a whole lot of my life in Ireland. I'm a lawyer by profession and I have been pretty successful in a
handful of ventures I get involved in from the Angel Investment Network in Ireland and United State to various welfare and community service programs, I most very often get my
hands occupied, so it is imperative for me to have a worthy assistant who can monitor and keep me up to date with my activities.

As my assistant, your activities amongst other things will include.
*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
*Scheduling programs, flights and keeping me up to date with them.
*Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence when I'm away.
*Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
*Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities.

Basic wage is £400 a week

This position is home-based and flexible, 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 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 the Germany now for a summit, however, I do have a number of things you could help me with this week if you will be available for me. This can act as a stable foundation to our working relationship.If You will be available for this job position, get back to me with your confirmation email.

Hope to hear from you.

Cheers.
Thomas

    I've been reading all these blogs! WOW I just went through the same ! all accept for the Money Orders sent to me were Validated through my Bank! I'm scared of those details. This Person was asking for a P/A and said he was a retired lawyer named( Ken Mooris)! Who also was in the UK for a summit! He wanted to eventually meet up with me and have coffee and a nice conversation about how to make this long term.
    I hope Whoever reads this Doesn't fall victim to this SCAM!

    BE ON THE LOOKOUT!!!
    here is what they look like!!!
