Submitted a resume on "Craigslist" for a seemingly legitimate position. Here was the response I received:
I got your resume and it has been reviewed, I did appreciate it. So I will give this a GO"
I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well and with good understanding. 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 amongst other things will include;
*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring. Scheduling programmed, 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 $500 Weekly
I'm sure you'll understand I intend to have a very busy schedule at this point. I am presently in Mexico, I will be back in Two Weeks.
I think you're the right person for this position, 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 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 extras while you do something else on the side. Like i 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 do that and i will be 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 need you to do for this week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home because it happens every month.
A payment inform of a Cashier Check/Money Order will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i

You will deduct $500 which is your payment for the first week and have all the rest of the money sent to the Orphanage home via western union or money gram.
