Sterling Children's Foundation Craiglist Scam- Recpetionist Fake Ottawa, Canada

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was looking for part time work on Craigslist and came across this Receptionist Job ad I emailed my resume then got a response the next day talking about a work for home situation that included getting their mail, fedex info, and picking up packages and paintings. I thought, too good to be true….did not sweat it too much. An hour later I check my email and received four other replies from my craigslist application for the same exact “job” but signed by different people. It was always the situation that they wanted me to start immediately but they could not see me face to face because they are away on vacation in Australia, Canada, or Jamaica but when they return in 3 months we can meet. RED FLAGS went up and stayed up. I googled the name of one of the companies to find….. RIPOFF.COM. How do you like that. Folks these days are sick!

The email asked for my name, address, and phone number...now, I sent in a resume so shouldn't they have this information already?

This was the email I recieved and its JUST like the others on here.... if they contact you..... RUN!

POSITION: Personal ASSISTANT

I got your resume and it has been reviewed, I did appreciate it, so I will give this a GO!

I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well and with good understanding. This position is home-based for 2 weeks till I am back in town where am setting up an office in your area, I run a Children's Foundation, working with me is flexible and basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, so I need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings. As my Personal Assistant, your activities amongst other things will include;

*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring. Scheduling programmes, flights and keeping me up to date with them. Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence while I'm away. Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf. Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities.

Basic wage is $600 weekly
I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point, as I am presently in Canada, I will be back in Three Weeks. I think you're the right person for this position, Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules, it's a part-time work from home and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others, so it's a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you'll be doing per week.

If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extras while you do something else on the side. As I have said, I'd want us to get a head START with things as soon as possible. I do have lots of works piled up presently and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with, I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually. Permit me to use the coming week to test your efficiency and diligence towards all this, also to work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. I really need to find the perfect person for this job, I'm confident you can take up the challenge and on the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us. I'm online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer we contact each other through E-mails, and SMS Messages but if there is need for me to call, I will be glad to do that. I am glad you are willing to work with me and I promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working. I have been checking my files lately and what I would want you to do for me this week are to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home, which comes in every month. A DONATION payment in form of a Check or Money Order will be sent over to you this come in once or twice a month from one of our clients, the one for this month would be sent to you which would be your first assignment.. I will get you more information on that. If you are interested, I would  want you to kindly fill your details below and send it to our company email at sterlingfoundation@black-edge.org So that we can get started as soon as possible.
