As my assistant, your activities amongst other things will include: Make travel arrangements and submit expenses for Attorneys Order office supplies, Running personal errands,Check Processing Filing documents,faxing,printing and typing letters Web research, Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf, Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities, Internet search skills and posting ads Quality communication etiquette skills and Serious sense of humor required and mandatory to work with me Ability to handle highly sensitive and confidential information Perform duties with accuracy, quality, and integrity You can only apply for this position if you own a personal computer.

My name is Mr Robert Daniels, i have a family of 3 and i am a Realtor and also a Lawyer.I travel alot,hence the reason why i need an assistant to handle affairs for me on the home front when i am away on business which is usually quite often. This position is home-based and flexible you can be in any location,working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, I need someone who can be able to meet up with my i regular timings.There is also a very sensitive issue on trust and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on. I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as I am presently in Alabama. I will be back in 3 months time that why i need a personal assistant.
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. Most times there wont be much to be done so its flexible. If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extra while you do something else on the side.
I'm online most of the time so I prefer to we contact each other through ( email@example.com ) on MSN Messenger. I would like to chat with you.
I will be glad if you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I will be glad on your commitment in working.

Where was your check sent from on the USPS label? & What bank was the check from?
I just got one the other day from Scranton, PA.
But the check was from CA.
What were the names on yours also?

Sounds like the ol' "Check Overpayment" scam.
Any more of you guys that get these fake checks/money orders in the mail, PLEASE take them to your local police department and FILE a report. You have to protect yourself from these idiots!! They want your resume & personal information because they use it for identity theft!! Think about it; now that they have your information they can use it to pretend they are you or know you and suck even more people in. AND...they can say "well so and so here is one of my employees. See I sent them their payment promptly. I will do the same for you my friend" or whatever BS line they use. DON'T Fall for it!!
Also, look VERY closely at those checks & $$ orders. Usually something is just a tad bit off. It might be there's no watermark; it may be the perforations, the ink used "seeps" though or looks as if it was just printed on there via a cheap printer; the banks routing 3 is non-existent, etc... What a buddy of mine did was he went and bought a $1.00 official US postal $$ order and used that for comparison. Another thing you can do to compare is go get a genuine cashiers check from that bank and compare notes. It's amazing at the "differences" you can find between the fake and the real thing when they are right next to each other.

Once again the "Not PO Box" gives them away.
The sure sign of a fake-check scammer or "mule" recruiter.

I concur with Skamdeth. ☺

Very good ideas, Sue!! I always tell everyone when they get one of these fake bogus checks to take it to the police department.
Notice these scammers NEVER use the US Postal Service to mail fake checks. It is always Fed Ex or UPS. And like Skamdeth says, the "No PO Box" is also a give away.

"Never deposit a check if you don't know who sent it to you. Just because your ATM or Internet bank account says "funds available" doesn't mean the check has cleared. Never accept a check for payment if the amount is greater than what you're owed."
"Your bank will never email or call asking for your account number. Limit the amount of personal information you give out over the phone or Internet."
"There are no legitimate work-at-home jobs involving processing checks."
While check fraud has many different angles, they all lead to one big mistake. A victim will deposit a bogus (yet legitimate-looking) check, and then write a check back to the sender. Since the fake check will never pay out – even if the victim's account has added the fake check as "available funds" – the victim ends up paying out their own money.
Many work-at-home scams are based out of phony businesses. Creating legitimate-looking websites is easier than ever, and criminals often use such websites to trick people.
Common "jobs" in work-at-home frauds may involve receiving products or goods and then "reshipping" them to other addresses; others may ask you to process checks and money orders. Neither of these tasks is ever, under any circumstances, legitimate. Other work-at-home scams may involve the purchase of a kit, materials, or other items upfront. These are usually priced much higher than their actual value. Many teens fall for this con.
Know the consequences.
Taking part in a work-at-home scam may make you an inadvertent accessory to a crime. If you see a job posting mentioning any of the above activities, either ignore the job or check with the Better Business Bureau before accepting an offer. Also, be wary of any business that won't offer you a physical address, phone number, or references.
