Hello,
I got you number from the care website. Are you available to watch over my 67 years old mom? If yes kindly forward your resume/references to her email lisascarborough001@gmail.com. She will explain what the job entails to you via email. Her name is Katrina
Thanks
After contacting her by email the mother sends a picture of herself and info regard herself. This will go on for several weeks then you will be offered advance pay see below

You seem perfect for this job, and I have decided to employ you as a Caregiver. I suggest that we meet on Sunday the 24th before you start working on Monday the 25th at any local restaurant over there.The start date has changed. That way we can get to know each other in person and share some interest about ourselves. The last couple of months hasn't been good and my daughter wouldn't want to get stocked with me on arrival. She once booked a caregiver when we moved here from Toronto and on arrival she told us she got another job which was a big disappointment so I`m willing to make a deposit for the first week to ensure a secured appointment and to avoid disappointment. I will be looking forward to your email

Hello
Thanks for responding to my daughter's text. She just got transferred to your area from LUVERNE, MN and I am willing to relocate with her. You will be with me from 9 AM to 2 PM daily, Monday-Friday and some weekends are also flexible. Let me know if this hours will work for you if not, specify your availability. I am willing to pay $25/hr. This is a long term position it all depends on your commitment and availability. Your duties (negotiable) will include cooking dinner, light housework and/or laundry, as well as light grocery shopping, administer my meds, and personal care. We will be in town on Sunday the 18th and I will want you to start on 19th the day after.

More about me, my full name is Katrina Dosier, I was a sales manager with Honda for 12 years before an injury forced me to resign, I also lost my husband during that period and that was the same time I gave birth to my only daughter so it was a mixture of joy and pain for me. I am pretty much balanced with patience of a saint, somewhat serious at first glance but she constantly smile when I am with people so I am generally a happy person with a dry white sense of humor. I love live music, comedy, and the outdoors. I'm easy going, outgoing, friendly, and respectful. You will get to know more about me as time goes on. I have no serious health issues, I just went through a successful cataract surgery and my eyes defect have been corrected I now see clearly with my specs. I am just overcoming hearing disabilities and learning new ways to adapt to my prescribed hearing aids. So you will be more of a companion to me the hours my daughter will be away working she is a flight attendant and I know you are going to have a very eventful time with me daily. I attached pictures of myself, my daughter and my grand son for you.

I'm sorry if I appear loquacious, but I thinks it's important you know me before anything. I will be glad to know about you as well. Kindly include your complete name, address and cell number in your reply so I could check the map to read the distance between us as soon as I confirm the address of where we will be relocating to over there from my daughter which I will forward to you as soon as I have it. You may ask questions in case you have any. I await your quick response.


I must apologize to you for not getting across to you earlier than this time everything sounds good. We can meet at the McDonald's or any local restaurant close to you by 5:00 PM on Saturday the 24th when we arrive, my daughter will also be there. Kindly forward me the name and address. I hope this is convenient time for you. I will appreciate you working for us as one family not just a caregiver. That increases the love and build a great partnership between us. About the deposit, I have made arrangement to get my hearing aids because of my health issues, I got a cheaper one over there and I was wondering if I could have the seller deliver it to you. My step-son will be mailing a check of $2,950 to cover part of your first week deposit and the item. The cost of the hearing aids is $2,400, the vendor will be taking cash on delivery. The remaining $550 will be part of your first week deposit, I will give you the rest when we meet. I hope you can have this done for me as soon as the check clears, I will really appreciate it

Kindly let me know if this is clear so I can proceed to mailing the check
