Good Day,

I hope you're having a pleasant day today?
You contacted me applying for the position which I advertised on Craigslist. Do take time to go through this introductory mail and feel free to pass any questions on.

My profile briefly:

I'm a research journalist and I travel every now and then within and outside the US working on various independent projects ( Artwork ), this is why I need someone who can help keep up to date with all of my activities, especially when I'm away and amidst my busy schedule.

I would love to meet up with you to talk about this job but I am currently away on business in Australia, so there will be no interview.I will be back by the end of August. I will prepay 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 near you and then you can pick it up at your convenience. When you get my mails/packages, you are required to mail them to addresses that I will send you, and don't worry, all expenses and taxes will be covered by me. I will be paying you $400 weekly. I need your service because I am constantly out of town.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.

I will email you the list and pictures of what to shop for when I am ready,no heavy packages is involved.You can do the shopping at Sears, Wal-Mart, Kmart and Best buy or any other stores. I will provide you my UPS account number for shipping. I will provide clear set of instructions for each task I need to be done as well as the funds to cover them. I will mail you money to do my shopping plus upfront payment for your service.

This position is home-based and flexible part time job,you can be in any location you will be working from your home doing all the activities.All you need do is to check your emails twice daily and keep your phone on most times in case I might need to call you from anywhere I may be.I do have a number of things you could help me with this week,if you will be available to start.This can act as a stable foundation to our working relationship.
