Hey everyone, I've been getting emails saying basically the same thing from a man named Michael Moore. He even gave me a website to look at.

"Your resume was received and it has been reviewed, I did appreciate it. 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 Michael Moore , 49 yrs of age, I'm Self employed..I own a small and fast growing Textile and Fabrics Company in Bronx,NY and I have been pretty successful in a handful of ventures I get involved in; from the Angel of importing fabrics 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 $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.
*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, i will be attending a manufacturer summit in Malaysia and my flight leaves TODAY . I will be back in Three weeks, I also need you because i have some meetings in Chicago,IL to attend but i won't be able to so you would have to represent me there... I will pay all the cost.

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 this 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 this week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home which I do every month.

First Name :

So I was searching craigslist yesterday and found an administrative assistant job and receieved an email that sounds very similar to all of these other emails...except its under a different name! i thought maybe it was going to be ok but then this morning i recieved an email from another ad on craigslist that was too similar to the first one that i just knew it had to be a scam...2 different posts, 2 different people posing!!! heres both of the emails just to warn that now there are more than one name out there...


Dear Applicant,

Hope you're having a pleasant day today.You contacted me applying for the Administrative assistant position which I advertised,I'm also convinced and confident that you can take up the challenges ahead of you .however,here are some insightful details about this position which i want you to take note and feel free to pass any questions on.

I'm Mr Will Patton,Married with 4 wonderful children. I'm a relatively successful entrepreneur and huge investor in the real estate market which tends to be my main source of income.

I'm a private research journalist and I travel every now and then within and outside the US working on various independent projects,
that's why I'm appointing you to keep up to date with all of my activities especially when I'm away and amidst my busy schedule.
Please note that you are being hired only on a personal level, all correspondences would be made and promptly reported to me personally.

Due to my frequent travels, the position is full time and home-based meaning you may need to set up a home-office if you don't already have one; we will discuss the costs of setting this up as we move along.
Most importantly, you need to have a regular internet access, with this, I can easily convey instructions no matter where I am on what need to be done at a particular time.

Most of your activities will be carried out locally and most official documents and packages will be delivered via courier services. You will be actively involved in my personal, business and financial life.
In summary, your activities as my Administrative Assistant amongst other things will include;

* Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring; * Organizing and maintaining diaries, memos and making appointments;
* Taking on some of the my responsibilities and working more closely with management and other staff related to me;
* Handling and monitoring financial activities

Basic wage is $500 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,
Working with me is basically about instructions and following them, ,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 am
presently in Ontario Canada for a business exhibition, however, I do have a number of things you could assist me with immediately, prior to my arrival.

Do fill the employment form below for my personal record update in my data base

Welcome halley, and congratulations! :=)
You spotted a scam which wants to turn you into a mule: Buying and shipping goods and paying probably either with fake cheques or the stolen details of a credit card and UPS account.
I googled the email address, and the scammer posted similar advertisements on Craigslist in Salt Lake City, New York, and the Netherlands.
It would help the experts here (I am not one of them) to give you more information if you could post his full email including the header - delete your own name. This way, often we can find out where the mail was actually sent from.
Best wishes
Katharina

Edit: Found another advertisement for a job in Columbus :laugh-s:

Now I just wanna have a "fist to face" interview with this SOB. Should I keep playing along and turn in this "package" to the police? Or just call him out on his bs/forget about it?
#51249 by Katharina Thu Apr 14, 2011 8:36 am
Welcome Eternium, and thanks for posting!
Unfortunately, this scammer has got your real life details, so please don't mess with him. He might not show up at your doorstep, but why take the risk?
And please don't confront him with how you found out. This would help him to elaborate his shtick, and the next victim might be tricked. Just drop him and leave him wondering what went wrong.
If you want to harass him, go to our sister site,
http://forum.419eater.com/forum/
There we will show you how to waste scammers' time anonymously, without them being able to find you.
Congratulations on finding out in time!

Well, this is great. I decided to search this guy's email after giving him my info/celebrating getting "hired".
Any idea what sort of packages he wants picked up? Recommendations on what to do?

Here's the 2 emails I've received from him:

Welcome to Scamwarners Gatsby.

Though there is a risk he'll use you to make purchases using stolen card details, the greater likelihood is that all the talk about shopping and picking up parcels is all just 'smoke and mirrors' to cover what will turn out to be wanting you to cash his counterfeit cheques and send him your cash out of your bank account.

I believe that there is an industry in printing counterfeit cheques and they're being sold to scammers as a business opportunity and that's why this type of scam is pushed so hard. It's not an easy one to pull off and it requires a lot of set up and work on the scammer's part, so I think it's the cheque printers who are the ones making the money and driving this scam.

Of course the evil part of this scam is that not only do you lose money, but you also break the law and can end up in serious trouble. Passing counterfeit paper will also destroy your credit rating and potentially destroy your career prospects.

So he's called me 3 times already. in the past 3 days. I confronted him and I was pretty pissed off this time so I told him off, stop calling me, then he threatened to come after me and I told him to go ahead, bring your hindu haji scott thomas ass up here Mother Frakker. Can barely speak english too. He must be pretty desperate since he called me. I've already spoken to a detective. The first 2 calls from him I believe came from United Kingdom. Today's call came from California. I really want this guy caught.
#51796 by Bubbles Fri Apr 22, 2011 2:45 am
Hello Eternium, we too would like to get all scammers closed down. It is not that easy to do. The criminal must be identified. A crime must have been committed (calling you three times is not a crime) and evidence must be presented. Then there is the jurisdictional dispute between the country you are in and the country the scammer is in.

I really wish it would work easily and simply. Sadly, it doesn't. You can post the phone number here and there are sites for posting problem phone numbers. Thank you for being a member here.

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

Hey there,

I just got a 2,769 dollar check from Mr. Thomas Harris douche-face.

He's still convinced that I know nothing about his scam; what can I do to mess with him? Would it be possible to get him caught?
#52092 by GomerPyle Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:52 am
419eater.com is the place to go to learn how to 'bait' 419 scammers safely without risk to yourself. I'm a member there but in this instance you have to drop him as he has your personal details. You can connect up with him again once you have your security set up (which is simple) but scammers will make threats if you mess with them, and it's not worth allowing them to spook you with threats if they know where you live. Many have connections abroad and though the risks are not great, it's much nicer to be able to laugh at their threats if you know they have no chance of harming you.

I understand your anger and desire for revenge and satisfaction, but it's wisest and simple to do it smartly, and nothing is more satisfying than wasting a scammer's time which leaves them less time to mess with potential victims.

#53681 by hellokitty1550 Wed May 18, 2011 2:58 pm
I had contact with a similar guy. Reading through his email, something didn't ring true. I realized later it was because the ad I had originally replied to referenced a tile store, but the email I received as a response was from an "attorney." Oops!

This scam is tricky because a lot of the usual red flags aren't there. He's offering $250-$400 per week, which doesn't seem like much, tbh. The tasks are pretty descriptive. I also like how he included the "foster home." It's not immediately apparently how he intends to scam you. I also googled the attorney he's claiming to be and the guy appears to exist and have a legitimate law firm. He used several email addresses - the original one on the ad was [email protected], but he replied to my inquiry from "Daphne Lau [email protected]". He's also using the Kelly Herston email address at the bottom of his email. Here's what he sent:

Hello,

How are you doing today? Thanks for applying to the post. Actually the position for a Personal Assistant is opened now it would be a great pleasure to have you as my assistant.

My name is Kelly Herston,I am an attorney and have been practicing for 10 years I am in need of a personal assistant that can handle my official and personal needs when I am not around. The job is on a part time basis and it may turn round to be a full time one in the future if the need be. I travel a lot because of my kind of work and I have strong interaction with some international organization. I am an international lawyer and I have a license to practice in three states in the USA but I will have to streamline my personality to few ones here and after which you will get all necessary details about me after your trial assignment for security reasons. I have to go through some recruitment procedures as an attorney but due to my absence in the states at the moment, I will have to do it in my own way and later finish up with the documentation. I am presently in a summit in Australia and I will get back to the states in three weeks time so pending the time I return back to the State you will be working at the Convenience of your Home.


Your work details are as follows:

* Printing and sending out mails for me.
* Help make hotel or flight reservation while I provide all my personal and delicate information to secure booking.
* Handling and monitoring some of my administrative files and financial activities.
* Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
* Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence when I'm away.

I hope you understand the job details very well and some shall be discussed in full as soon as we move on. The most important thing is trust and proper accountability, which I believe it will resolve itself as time goes on. The basic wage again is $250 weekly(I increase your wage to $400 after 2 weeks trial period ) and I want you to understand that paying this kind of wage means you need to do my work or the duties assigned to you perfectly... I hope you will be a very good and commendable personal assistant that I can trust because my work may come in at anytime. For documentation and confirmation with regardless of the information on your resume, I will need you to provide me with the information below:
