Angel Investment Network in Canada & US / Craigslist Job Posting SCAM

Philadelphia, PA, United States Review updated:

I responded to an Craigslist job posting for an Administrative Assistant http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/ofc/1766239354.html and received the following email from Andre Joseph Collins, which seemed suspicious so I checked it out here and Angel Investment Network came up as a scam - BEWARE!:

Hello,

Thanks for applying for the post, I quite I appreciate it. I received and read your e-mail and it's reasonable and acceptable. So I will give this a go.
I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable, someone with good understanding and working skills.

I am Andre Joseph, 43 yrs of age, 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 Canada 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.

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.

As my personal assistant, your activities among others will include:
*Create and modify documents using Microsoft Office
*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
*Scheduling programmes, flights and keeping me up to date with them.
*Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence while I'm away.
*Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
*Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities..
*Basic wage is $600 a week

QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS:
*Good planning, communication and organization skills
*Must be honest, reliable & dependable
*Excellent verbal & written communication skills
*Must have strong problem solving skills
*Must be organized & extremely detail oriented
*Experience working with the internet, email, MS Excel and MS Word
*Ability to multi-task and self manage 24/7 mindset
*A willingness to do whatever needs to be done is a must

NOTE: The above qualification requirements can also be learnt if you are willing to take up the challenges.

I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as I am presently in Netherlands for a summit. I will be back in Three Weeks time.

I think you're the right person for this post, Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules. It's a part-time, work from home basis and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others. So it's a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you'll be doing per week. If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extra while you do something else on the side. As I have said, I'd want us to get a head start with things as soon as possible. I do have a pile up of work and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with. I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually. Permit me to use the coming week to test your efficiency and diligence towards all this, also to work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. I really need to find the perfect person for this job and i am confident you can take up the challenges. On the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us.

I'm online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer we contact each other through E-mails but if there is need for me to call, I will be glad to do that. I am glad you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working. I have been checking my files and what i would want you to do for me next week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home which I do every month. The funds will be in form of Cashier check, it will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some list to email you once you received the funds. You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the nearest store around you so you can mail them out. I will get you more information on that.

    I received the same sketchy email! People beware... He has several different emails listed, and is stating one of his clients would pay me instead of him directly. There were several other red flags but I'm not going to list them and aid these Nigerian ### or other scam artists in improving their scam.
    I hope none of u fall for it.

    Hello i recently recieved this email from a Mr Peter Martins
    BEWARE OF THE SCAM


    Hello,
       
       I got your resume and went through it perfectly.I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable, someone with  good understanding and working skills.

     
    I am Mr Peter Martins, 45 yrs of age, I'm an Investor and I have been pretty successful in a handful of ventures I get involved in; from Canada and United State to various welfare and community service programs. I most very often get my hands occupied, so it is imperative or me to have a worthy assistant who can monitor and keep me up to date with my activities.This position is home-based, private 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.
     
    As my personal admin/financial assistant, your activities among others will include:
    *Create and modify documents using Microsoft Office
    *Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
    *Scheduling programmes, flights and keeping me up to date with them.
    *Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence while I'm away.
    *Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
    *Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities..
    *Basic wage is $1, 600 a month.i.e $400 a week
     
    QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS:
    *Good planning, communication and organization skills
    *Must be honest, reliable & dependable
    *Excellent verbal & written communication skills
    *Must have strong problem solving skills
    *Must be organized & extremely detail oriented
    *Experience working with the internet, email, MS Excel and MS Word
    *Ability to multi-task and self manage/24/7 mindset
    *A willingness to do whatever needs to be done is a must
     
    NOTE: The above qualification requirements can also be learnt if you
    are willing to take up the challenges.
     
    I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as I am presently in Scotland for a summit. I will be back in four Weeks time.
     
    I think you're the right person for this post, Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules. It's a part-time, work from home basis and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others. So it's a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you'll be doing per week. If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extra while you do something else on the side. As I have said, I'd want us to get a head start with things as soon as possible. I do have a pile up of work and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with. I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually. Permit me to use the coming week to test your efficiency and diligence towards all this, also to work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. I really need to find the perfect person for this job and i am confident you can take up the challenges. On the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us.
     
    I'm online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer we contact each other through E-mails but if there is need for me to call, I will be glad to do that. I am glad you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working. I have been checking my files and what i would want you to do for me is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home which I do every month.

You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the nearest store around you so you can mail them out. I will get you more information on that.

    OMG...February 13, 2012 - I have also received this same email but it is listing an actual CEO of a Computer Company in the US - What a creep! I won't include the name of the Computer Company or the CEO's name as I'm sure HE is a nice person and don't want to perpetuate this garbage...but Everybody in the Personal Assistant Biz...Look OUT! And to the Creep who's doing this...Kharma Dude! Kharma! Ying and Yang...watch out! Best To All! Kath in LBTS, FL

    Re: Dynamic Personal Assistant Position
    Hello Kath,
    I received your resume in response to the ad on Career Builder for a Personal Assistant, I will deeply appreciate all genuine efforts 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, 52, originally from Australia, but I have spent a whole lot here in United States. I'm a lawyer, CEO of Lahey Computer Systems, Inc. and I have been pretty successful in a handful of ventures I get involved in; from the Angel Investment Network in Canada and United States 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 programmes, 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 $600 a week


    This position is home-based and flexible, working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is 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 Queensland Australia 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.
    Hope to hear from you again.
    Cheers.

    (Not listing actual name of company or CEO as I don't want his name to be slandered)

    I just got the same one from a "Courtney Miller." Of course the English syntax is so poor no one would believe this was someone from Queensland who had lived most of their life in the U.S. Thanks for posting this!

    I have a care.com account and tonight a "Mr. Peter" sent me a TEXT. I didn't realize my phone number was accessible and I am changing that setting right now. Attaching a pic of the text.
    Two days ago, I got an email through my rover.com account from "Jason Halloway" - said him and his wife Kimberly were transferring to my area from VA. Offered me $300 a week plus expenses to pet sit and buy things for his new apartment. Asked for my info. I contacted rover support and they said they had just deleted his account because of fraud. So beware of that name too.
