I received an email from the same name, but different email address. I responded with no information and requested more details and this is the email I received (not as a response, but as a separate email). Almost 100% sure it's a scam.
My name is Wright Houston I'm looking for someone who can handle my business & personal errands at his or her spare time. Someone who can offer me these services:
* Mail services (Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS) * Shop for Gifts * Bill payment (pay my bills on my behalf) * Sit for delivery (at your home) or pick items up at nearby post office at your convenience. * If you interested in the position kindly fill out your personal details required.
Let me know if you will be able to offer me any or all of these services.
Where are you located? I will love to meet up with you to talk about this job but I am currently away on business. I have been in Australia for an Art Exhibition so there will be no interview. I will prepare you in advance to do my shopping. I will also have my mails and packages forwarded to your address. If you will be unable to stay at your house to get my mails, I can have it shipped to a post office closer to you and then you can pick it up at your convenience.
When you get my mails/packages, you are required to mail them to where I want them mailed to. You don't have to use money out of your pocket. All you have to do is have the package(s) shipped to wherever I want and do my shopping. You are allowed to open the packages to reveal its content.
The content of the packages are Art Materials and Paintings, clothings, business and personal letters. All expenses and taxes will be covered by me. You will work between 15 to 20hrs a month.
The pay is $500 weekly. That is not a bad offer is it? I need your service because I am constantly out of town. I own an Art Gallery in New York and Los Angeles.
I will be returning to USA in NOV so this process will be going on till then.
If you don't mind, I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this long term.
Well, let me know if you are able to handle the position. I hope to hear from you soon.
I will email you the list and pictures of what to shop for when I am ready. No heavy package is involved! You can do the shopping at any nearby store. You will be shopping for Electronics and clothings.
I will provide you my personal UPS account number for Shipping. All you have to do is provide my account number to UPS and shipping charges will be billed to the account.
I will provide clear set of instructions for each task I need done as well the funds to cover them.
If I were to mail you money to do my shopping plus upfront payment for your services, where will you want it mailed to? How should your name appear on the payment? Provide me with the following details listed below:
Full Name: Full Address(No POBox): City: State: Zip Code: Home Phone: Cell Phone: Age: Occupation(If any): Email address:
Best Regards, WRIGHT HOUSTON wright_h@blumail.org
