Details of Scam Report
Hello Applicant
    Your email was received through Craigslist seeking for the Position posted on there and have decided to give you a “Go.” with the Personal Assistant available now.
 Detailed Job Description:       My name is Peterson Holmes. I am 48 years old, married with 2 children. I am a relatively successful entrepreneur and huge investor in the real estate market, which tends  to be my main source of income. I am looking for a trustworthy and reliable individual who works well and understand orders.
   I have been a financial planner for over 17 years now and am also a private research journalist. I travel often within and outside of the United States working on various independent projects. 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. Working for me is a test of following instructIions. My only fear is that I may need you at impromptu times, so I need someone who is able to meet up with me at irregular times. As my Personal Assistant, your activities amongst others will include:
 ·      Creating orders, pick slips, invoices, and credit memos  ·      Running personal errands  ·      Scheduling programs, flights, and meetings and keeping me up to date with them  ·      Acting as an alternative phone correspondent while I am away  ·      Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf  ·      Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities  ·      Basic wage is $600 weekly
    I am sure you understand how busy my schedule is on a daily basis. Currently, I am in Europe meeting with partners. I will be back in three weeks to arrange a formal interview with you. I think you are 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 is a part-time job, and some weeks you will be busier than others, though pay stays constant. Like I said, I think you are the right person for this job, and think we should get a head start this week. I have a lot of work piled up that I will need help catching up on immediately. I would like to use this coming week to test your efficiency and diligence, and to work your schedule around mine. I am hard of hearing and usually stay in touch through email, but if you would like me to call, I will be glad to do that. I am glad you responded to my ad in such a timely manner and look forward to working with you and promise to  be a good boss.
    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 Certified Check Payment 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 will get you more information on that, I will like you to get back to me with your Contact Details such as
 Full Names:  Address Line with Apt #:  City, State, Zip Code:  Cell Number for text:  Home Phone:  Current Occupation:  Have you had any work of this nature before:  Email Address: Do you have a bank account for your salary?  
 The employee, acknowledged the detailed job description and signed below.

 Warm Regards,  Peterson Holmes

Scam Email
I had job search on craigslist , and hit on this one. The next day this person responded with this extra long email. The content of this email sounded unreasonable. When I replied, I did enter my persoal info(except my bank acct). Because i never realized that it was a scam before i searched it up. I am glad I found all these posts. Thank you friends for helping out ..
