I received this same e-mail

I got this same e-mail and he goes by the name of David White. I knew there was something fishy. If it's too good to be true then it is. Why do these people do this? Just to collect personal info? They're not asking for cash, or your social or anything. So why do this?

Personal Assistant Scam #whatever its up to now

Watch out for Walter Smith too. He seems to be more charismatic than the others but its still the same jive.

I received your confirmation e-mail.I need a P.A and not a slave.That means you are ready to take the job position am offering , I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point.

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 basis 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 extra 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 a pile up of work and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with and 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 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 and what i would want you to do for me this week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home, I do that every new month.

The funds will be in form of check and it will be issued to you including your 350$ first week payment, am going to email the list of what to do to you as soon as i compile them all but it will be better to wait till you get the fund before i give you the list .

Roberst Filter Group PA-- Scam Alert!!

After replying to an ad on Craigs list, this is the email I received. Job Seekers BEWARE!!!

Hello,

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 am allen crane, a father of 2 wonderful kids and the CEO of The Roberts Filter Group. The Roberts Filter Group is a world class water treatment equipment supplier. We have been a pioneer in the industry since our creation in 1889. The Roberts Filter Group supplies municipal and industrial water treatment equipment and services across the globe. Learn more about us at www.robertsfiltergroup.com.

I have an opening for a Special Assistant who will support me in day to day activities, special projects and scheduling. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, with a successful track record of developing and maintaining administrative systems in a team environment. I travel every now and then within and outside the USA working on various independent Offices, 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 have had a previous Assistant who has been very commendable in her activities and who has been part of my life for the past 6 months, she has since moved on with her personal life and it has affected me in a way. I found her previously on the craigslist website and I sincerely hope I will be able to find someone again who will be as efficient as she has been.

Please note that you are being hired only on a personal level. All correspondences would be made and promptly reported to me personally. The position is part time and home-based meaning you can work most times from your home as long as you have a regular internet access. You are also hired on a trial basis for now until we are able to see how well we fit in, this however does not affect your weekly wage.

Most of your activities will be carried out locally and most official packages will be delivered via posts. You will be actively involved in my personal, business and financial life. In summary, your activities as my assistant amongst other things will include;

* Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence;
* Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring;
* Organizing and maintaining diaries, memos and making appointments;
* Dealing with incoming email, faxes and post;
* Carrying out background research and presenting findings;
* A personal reminder for Schedules, programs, flights and keeping me up to date with them as they come up;
* Arranging travel and accommodation
* Taking on some of the my responsibilities and working more closely with management and other staff related to me;
* Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
* Handling and monitoring financial activities.
* Processing and taking charge of weekly payments and purchases.
* You will also be a part of my household and a helping hand to issues as they arise.
* General clerical activities.

Basic wage is $450 Weekly.

Any extra personal expenses (transport, gas, etc) incurred by you while on an errand or otherwise will also be reimbursed by me at the end of each working week.

This position is very flexible and it is difficult judging the exact number of hours you will be doing, just bear it in mind that there will be busier weeks than others with a steady pay.

Working with me is 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. There is also a very sensitive issue on trust, dedication and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on.

This is only an introductory e-mail, as time goes on we should be able to arrange a proper meeting to get things started officially. I'm currently in England now for a project, however, I do have a number of things you could help me with immediately, prior to my arrival.

Due to the excessive number of responses to my Ad, do provide the following details about yourself for my personal record update and to filter applicants;

I hope you can be available for me immediately before I arrive, it certainly can act as a stable foundation to our impending working relationship.

Yes, this is a scam

In my personal experience, if you give this person your name and address, in a few days, you will receive a cashiers check in the mail that looks legit, but it is not. There was no instructions or explanations, just a cashiers check. The bank is real, but the check is not. My attorney advised me to fax a copy of the check to the fraud department of the bank, and to let them handle it. So that is what I'm doing. I am also reporting this to my local BBB. If I'd have cashed the check, I could have been facing criminal charges myself.
