    Re: Personal Assistant/Errands, Please fill out the application form

    Hello,

    Thanks for responding to the text message.

    The available job position is as a Personal Assistant and the details about the position will be explained below.

    My name is Bill Lucas, an Interior Designers, Decorators & Art collector with a large client base and because of my job I'm constantly out of the State. My former Personal Assistant just got married and moved to Canada. If you accept my offer, I will need you to take charge of my mail pick ups and drop offs as well as errand running during your spare time outside of work. The job is flexible so you can do it wherever you are as long as there is a post office in the area. I will pay for the first week in advance to run any errands, and will also have my mails/packages forwarded to a nearby post office where you can pick them from at your convenience.

    All errands will be in your city/town so it is not a must you have a car, but if you do it might be a plus. When you get my mails/packages, you will be required to mail them to where I want them mailed too. The content of the packages will be business and personal mails. All expenses and taxes will be covered by me and you are to work for just 2 days per week (4 hours daily). You will be doing this for 3 weeks until I get back to town so we can formally meet and discuss about the possibility of making this arrangement long term if I'm satisfied with your performance. How much will you charge per week? Am willing to pay $400 weekly including gas and others expenses. That is not a bad offer is it? If you accept this offer please reply with the following details:

    He somehow got my phone number off of Care.com, although that information isn’t even publicly on there, and then he sent me that very same email. I figured it was a scam. Very sketchy.

    I just received the same email, has anyone tried it to see if he actually is legit? Or does everyone know he is fake? I mean what personal information is he actually asking for?

    If you write to him he will probably write back unless his email is dead. And he's fake but he will probably send you a fake check and you don't even want to waste your time with that.

    He sends you a check from a legit hacked account for more than the agreed upon amount and then asks you to send him the overage

    I did respond back he said there's a check that's been delivered to the address. This is what he said to do with it...

    Hello xxxxxx

    How are you doing?

    This is to update you that the payment for your first week's pay has been mailed out to you which I will need for you to complete promptly and at your earliest convenience would be greatly appreciated. Included in this assignment is your first week pay like I assured you that you would receive. I am looking forward to meeting you Next Weekend in person and your work ethics and getting things done in a timely manner are greatly appreciated.. You will be receiving the Check on the amount of $1450

    Once you receive the Check, Here is how to go about the transaction :-
    The financial officer has given strict instructions that as soon as you get this payment, take the payment to your BANK, Deposit it using your PHONE, or ATM MACHINE, or DEBIT CARD, with those method it wont take more than 30 minutes to clear into your account, but if you cant use those method or you don't have access to do that then have the payment deposited into your BANK ACCOUNT. Payment will only take 24 hrs to clear into your bank account and once the payment has cleared, deduct your first week pay which is $400 and will let you know how to send the rest cash to the art designer who will get the art work and then will send to the nearest mall and then you will proceed to the nearest Mall around you to make payment for my latest Art Works/ Gallery shopping's. Please handle this once received as if it were your own. I will pick the materials up from you once its ready.

    Total deduction for you: $400

    That's basically all needed to do to complete your first assignment. Very simple instructions.

    I will be waiting to read back from you Asap and i also have one more assignment for you to be done Next week. I want you to be rest assured that I'll never stress you at all in any assignment given to you and i promise to pay your fee weekly as we both agreed. I will be expecting to read from you.

    Honesty, loyalty and punctuality is my watchword.

    Regards
    Bill Lucas

    @steve75 You need to file a complaint with law enforcement or US Postal Service. Banking fake checks is an offense in the US.

    I got the check in the mail. Don't know what to do from here. He is texting me. He threatened to have me arrested when I told him his scam was up, that the authorities had his fraudulent check.

    @Jenny G - Contact your local law enforcers or UPS & report this as asap, obviously don't bank the check as it will be required as evidence along with all the email's, texts etc which you have received. Scamming is one thing, threatening you is very serious.
