Good Morning,

How was your night? I hope you it was pleasant! Am glad to inform you that the payment has been mailed and should be delivered to you within the next 24/48hours via USPS. The tracking number is: 9470101699320016107389 and you can have it tracked via!input.action to know the status of the delivery.

The payment to be delivered include your first week pay ($350) and the rest will be used for the shopping (list of things attached) for the Orphanage homes. Once received, proceed to your bank and have it DEPOSITED as instructed by the issuer make sure you let me know as soon as its deposited. The funds will be made available within 24 - 48 hours by your bank and email back as soon as you complete the deposit so that you can be fed with more details.

I will want you to ask for my approval before going ahead with purchasing the listed items (expecting colors/brands to purchase from the respective orphanage home) and we would discuss how to have it shipped easily. Please follow my instructions accordingly.

I will await your response and do enjoy your day.

Thanks getting back swiftly and expediency is one of the major qualities I am looking for in my Warehouse Assistant. Presently, I'm in Canada attending an art exhibition and will be travelling to China next week to import interior decoration materials.

You have been approved of the position and will be starting work this week. A payment will be mailed to you and it should deliver within the next 2 - 3 business day. After receiving the payment, you will have it processed at your bank. The payment will include your weekly pay and the rest will be used to carry out your first assignment.

After checking my files, your first assignment will be running an errands to few orphanage homes which I do twice every month. You will be purchasing some stuffs for the kids at the orphanage home at any stores close to you and will have them mailed to the respective orphanage address which will be provided to you later.

I will email you more information about the check delivery and will use this week to test your efficiency.

Hope to read back from you soon to confirm you received my email.
