This is an email I received from a job posting. I have gotten similar responses before, specifically that Mark Daniels one...

Congratulations Allison
Your resume was received, carefully reviewed and certified. You now have a job with me.
Am Moses Rivera, i own a new marketing company in Florida which is basically doing more of online (internet) marketing for now.
I intend to enlarge my company to Los Angeles next 2 weeks, so i'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well and with good understanding.
Being selected for the job only means you are guaranteed to work with me for 2 weeks which will be paid $17/hour, am going to use the 2 weeks to test you on how fast, trustworthy and efficient you can work. You are going to work at home for the 2 weeks duration and i ll supply you with transport allowance anytime you have a run an errand for me outside home. All you need for the next 2 weeks is a computer, mobile phone and internet.
If you pass the 2 weeks test and am satisfied with your work, then we ll sign the contract/all necessary documents and you can start work on a full/part time basis afterwards which pay ll be increased as time goes on, and you ll report to the office which would be situated near you.
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 Assistant, your activities among 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 while I'm away.
Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities..

Basic wage is $17 per hour (Monday to Friday), up to 40hrs available or depending on hours work of your choice, and i ll pay an extra $100 on any Saturday you run errands for me.

Send me an email ( [email protected]) to let me know if you have agreed with the terms of these job and willing to start now so i can proceed in telling you what errands i have scheduled for you to start with. Also let me know your current work status ,your preferred days and hours you ll like to work for.
N.B.. Wages ll be paid to you every Friday via western union/MoneyGram/Direct Deposit or Paypal.
Text me on (904) 438-8027 (SMS ONLY) or email me if you need anything.
I await your response.
Moses Rivera

The phone number says Jacksonville, Florida, but the writing says West Africa. There's no way he can be in LAX, JAX, Philly, and Africa at the same time — unless he's a scammer. :laugh-s:
