This is why I need someone who can help keep me up to date with all of my activities, especially while I am away and amidst my busy schedule. My previous personal assistant is currently unavailable for health reasons and I am keen on finding an efficient, motivated, organized individual who can communicate well and is able to multi-task under pressure.

This position is home-based and flexible as tasks will be carried out basically in your area, Working for me is a test of following instructions.

As I have said, I'd want us to get a head START with things as soon as possible.I do have lots of works piled up presently 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, I'm confident you can take up the challenge and 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 through Relay Call. 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 this week and week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home, I do that every month.

A payment inform of a USPS Money Order/Certified Check will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some lists to email you once you received the funds,You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the Orphanage at any nearest store around you so you can mail them out.

I wish I had read all this sooner. I responded to an ad with my resume for a personal assistant. Thank goodness I listened to my instincts and kept most personal information off the resume. Here is what I recieved in an email.

Hello,
I am writing in response to your interest on my Craigslist post . You will work from home for only 3 hour per day for a basic wages of $600 per week.You need to go through my introductory message:

I am Ryan Dunston a Successful Entrepreneur, investor and a research journalist .I travel a lot, within and outside the US working on various independent projects, this is why I need an PERSONAL ASSISTANT, to keep up with all of my activities especially when i travel abroad.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 we are able to see how well we 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;


* A personal reminder for Schedules, programs, flights and keeping
me up to date with them as they come up;
* Carrying out specific projects and research;
* Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
* Handling and monitoring financial activities.
* Processing and taking charge of weekly payments and purchases.
* General clerical activities.


Basic wage is $600 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 Month.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 . 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 am currently in Asia, for business .However, I do have a number of work you can get done, 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 applicant s;

Your Full Name:
Street Address:
Apartment Number:
City: State:
Zip Code:
Cell/Home phone number:
Age:
Present working Status:
Email:


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.
Best Regard,
Ryan Dunston

My niece got a similar email and then accidently resent her resume...she then got a follow up email and a few days later received a cashiers check in the mail with some instructions to deduct her weekly wage and send the rest to the Philippines after which she would be receiving some art supplies....what exactly is the scam?? I keep finding this posted on scam sites but not what the actual scam is. Any help would be appreciated. Oh also the phone number attached to her email was different.

The check is a fake printed by another victim, who thinks he has a job printing checks. The scammer gets a hold of a bank account number and hires someone to print checks on it. He then sends them to the money mule, who keeps a small part of it and sends the rest to the scammer.
