Work as my personal assistant earn $500 weekly reply if interested.<<<<< This is what I was sent, so to receive more information on him, I sent a pleasant email back asking for his phone number and fax number, but considering its a scam, I know I will never get what I asked for. Watch out for these people, I know we get desperate when it comes to finding a job, but with the experience I have, $500 a week is way too much lol !
