Post Title: Personal Assistant
States affected: OH - ohio
I replied to his job opening posting on CraigsList. A David Nickel (email@example.com) replied back, but he did not provide his address as I requested in my email. I did not reply back the second time, because the content of his letter sounds really fishy (phisy) to me. The letter pasted below.
Thanks for applying for the post, I quite I appreciate it. I received and read your e-mail and it's reasonable and acceptable. So I will give this a go.
I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable, someone with good understanding and working skills.
I'm David Nickel, 54 yrs of age, I'm a doctor by profession and I have been pretty successful in a handful of ventures I get involved in, from the Cannaan Investment Network in Canada and United State to various welfare and community service programs. I most very often get my hands occupied, so it is imperative for me to have a worthy driver who can help and keep me up to date with my activities.
This position is home-based and flexible for now pending the time i will be back to state, 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. As my assistant, your activities among other things will include:
*Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring.
*Scheduling pro grammes, 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 $550 a week .
I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as I am presently in China. I will be back in Three Weeks.
I think you're the right person for this post, 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. 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 and i am confident you can take up the challenges. 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 to we contact each other through (drrbertfilter8dr) on yahoo chat 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 and what i would want you to do for me next week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home which I do every month.
The funds will be in form of Money Order or Cashier check, it will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some list to email you once you received the funds.
You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the nearest store around you so you can mail them out. I will get you more information on that.
I will like you to get back to me with your Contact Details such as:
Full Contact Address
Phone Number (H)
Phone Number (M)
Occupation (if any)
Once I have received your contact information, I will get back to you with the task for this week. Please understand that you will also be paid as well as its important for me to make the necessary steps before i get back from my business trip. I hope i am clear with that?
Please get back as soon as possible...

Re; David nickel/ micky nickelly
I just got the same email for a posting i replied to Aug 31 only it was from a Micky Nickelly. The only thing changed was his name and the email it was sent from (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the email to the the contact information to ( email@example.com ). I would attach it to this comment but it makes it all one paragraph and hard to read. I attempted to search for him by that but got no response BUT luckily for me he used the same yahoo chat name! looks like your gut was right and so was mine...
