The(Financial adviser And Account Personnel) all seems so worried about your return of the money but i had assured them that you will definitely treat it according to their directives when you might have gotten the payment. Hope all is well? I have already inform the Housing agent that the money is in save hand and will get to them, All i need from you right now is to have me notified when you receive the payment so that further directives on how to return the overage might be given

I am in need of someone who can take care of my father, clean the house and run some errands for him when necessary. You would only be needed Only 3 days a week for flexible hours (times can vary, these are the earliest and the latest hours total,but some days you won\'t have to come in till 4p.m. and could possibly leave by 5 p.m., but the worst case would be from 2pm to 6pm the latest,if am home earlier, then you can leave.,but am offering $450 weekly which i think is a good offer as compensation, for a trustworthy, and honest candidate.

I already have a financial adviser in the States, who will be handling my affairs. I also have a Personal Assistant, who is helping me with the re-location process. If you accept this position, I will instruct my finance manager to forward to you, by express mail a pay check of $450.00 for your first week payment. If this employment opportunity is acceptable to you, please provide me with the following
information:

Your full name:

Our expected arrival date is Jan 10th but you will be paid $450.00 per week, beginning immediately, as I will have several assignments for you to complete before we arrive, such as checking the apartment, we would be paying for necessary supplies, purchasing what may be needed before our arrival, etc. All we ask from you is honesty and sincerity. And am sure you will enjoy the time you will spend with my Father as he is generous and fun to be with. Will be looking forward to hearing from you, regarding this employment offer.
