  I was contacted through Craigslist for a job offer from this address michaelsco63@gmail.com. From the get go I knew something was up with all the incorrect spelling and other errors. This person who described himself as Michael said that he would send me a check with a long list of duties that I was to perform. I accepted the job because it is the holidays and I am out of a job and my car was totalled in an accident and now I do not even have any transportation. I was mailed a business check a week later and was instructed to take it to the bank and cash it or out it in my ATM. After I was to WIRE the money and keep $300.00 for myself. I took it to the bank to cash it out and was embarrassed and made to look like a criminal. I later emailed Michael and told him I was going to report him via FBI and he got irate. Then he wrote back saying 'Sorry'. DO NOT do this type of work because it is considered money laundering.  Here is the original email:

Hello,
Thank you for your signified interest in the position I advertised. I will explain the logistics of the job as detailed as possible, I am sorry if you find it somewhat lengthy but I feel I should let you have an idea of what you will be doing for me.I have very tight-fitted schedules, which I must admit I find difficult to keep up with, and for this reason, I need a personal assistant who will help me with some of the little details of my schedules; I used to have someone in this
position but she returned to her home country to assume control over a family business that was left for her to handle after her fathers demise. As much as I do not want to use her as a yardstick to measure who fills in her position, I would reiterate, however, that she was very excellent, prompt, smart,and courteous in her discharge of duties I  am extremely proud of her work ethics.

All I need is someone who is efficient, timely, and most importantly,someone who carries out instructions as outlined among other
things. I am Michael Scott, 49 years old, originally from United Kingdom, I moved to the United States about eight years ago, and no
doubt, I have been lovingly enjoying it here all the way. I am an international businessman who deals in oil and gas ventures, and so far,I have been involved in a lot of other ventures and businesses which I have been very well successful at, all over the world from Australia, to Europe,to The Middle East, and many other continents.As I said earlier, I have a lot to handle and I need the service of a personal assistant to handle some of the small tasks that I cannot have time to oversee or monitor. As my personal assistant, here are most of the works you will  be doing:    Running personal errands,like mailing off packages
(contents of which you will be aware of) and making calls from a phone I will provide for you you will also receive phone calls on the number.Mainly business calls that you will be privy to.
Scheduling programs, flights, meetings, and keeping me updated about them. These activities details will be available to you  the
assignments are ready for you to undertake.

  Handling some of my financial activities paying some clients,receiving payments from clients, making donations, depositing
cash on my behalf. Nonetheless, I am in Abu Dhabi, UAE, for an oil seminar and will be heading off to Kuwait for another workshop based on energy and gas;both these trips will take three weeks altogether, and after then I will return Stateside. While I am away, I have a number of tasks I want you to handle for me this week and next, if you will be  available.
This will as well serve as a stable foundation to predicate our working relations and ethics. Also, I will have you know that this position is not office-based at the moment because of my incessant trips but as soon as I settle in the next four weeks or there about, I will have an office for you I am also working on extending my offices to various parts of the States soon as I finish perfecting my merge with some other firms from London.But, for now, the tasks I will have for you should not normally take you more than one or two hours to completion depending on your time management skills. You may also have something else doing on the side as you await my provision for a permanent office for you.

As I was saying earlier, I would want us to start things as soon as possible so I can test your diligence, efficiency, and promptness
towards all these. I would want to believe that you will be up for the challenge, eventually, we should have a smooth working relationship between us. The first assignment I have for you is to run a donation to a cause: an orphanage home that I am very familiar with had told me about a child that needs a brain surgery, and I have pledged to have a donation sent to them in form of the payment method which they have informed me about.Therefore, upon your confirmation of acceptance of this job, I will instruct a client that owes me to write and send you a cashier check,details of which I will furnish you with if and when you have agreed to start this job. If you are willing to take up this position, I will need you to send me the following information accurately (this must also be the information where the Cashier check will be sent):

Name

Address

City

State

Zip code

Cell phone number  

 E-mail address

How often do you check your email in a day?----------

As soon as I receive these information, I will contact you immediately with details of the task for the week. You should also know that you will be paid weekly. Your basic weekly salary is $300.00 and there will also be bonuses as from the second week, provided you have handled the first assignment flawlessly.

God bless you tremendously

Thanks
Michael Scott

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Fraud 101

AUTHOR: Stanislaus112 - (U.S.A.)

This is a typical Advance fee fraud / 419 scam where you're offered checks to deposit (US banks typically make money available immediately, or within 1 business day) and transfer/wire money immediately to the scammer, in exchange for a percentage you are allowed to keep.  The problem is, while funds are available immediately from the bank, the check processing typically takes 3-5 business days, and the check you initially received was a fake.  So you're charged the entire amount, though you've already sent your money to the scammer, so they have money, and you're out that much, hence the reason you're to wire the money immediately.  You may also face additional penalties.

If you haven't reported this with all information to the FBI, do so immediately.
