This guy/person contacted me when I applied for a job online:
It's easy to see the scam: It has to be done NOW -- You gotta pay and get paid - that NEVER happens in a real job. He wants all my personal info NOW.
I love this line the best: "Hope i have a confidence in you and I am looking forward to a good working relationship between us. I hope you will be up to, perhaps better than my presumptions about you."
Here is the full letter:
Thanks for your reply, and hope this marks the beginning of a good working relationship all together.
From the details you have sent to me, I would like to give you the opportunity to be my new assistant; I do hope my decision will be worthwhile. I'll be using the next couple of weeks to test your efficiency and diligence towards this. I really need to find the perfect person for this job, and i hope you can take up the challenge and on the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us.
I hope we can get a head start with things as soon as possible. I have had to put a hold on a lot and I would appreciate it if you can be available for me immediately. I do have a couple of urgent tasks for you which will include you making some purchases and payments on my behalf. You will receive a check payment via mail which will also cover your wages bonus for the week as well as all other purchases payments needed to be made on my behalf. I will update you further on this giving you a comprehensive list on how to go about them.
My daughter also have a birthday coming up in 3 weeks, which i have a surprise party planned for her so you will also be working hand in hand with the plan in organizing gifts and anything else for the party. Kindly reply this e-mail as soon as possible to further signify your interests in working with me. Hope i have a confidence in you and I am looking forward to a good working relationship between us. I hope you will be up to, perhaps better than my presumptions about you.
Hope to hear from you again soon.
