So I recently published my new pet care business on C. List. It very clearly says pet care, dog walking, etc. So I have gotten 2 very bizarre responses. One is for the care of this woman's dogs - but rather than wanting to talk to me she has assumed I am going to do the job and wants me to send her my address for the first payment. I am still not even sure what I am doing, because again she has not called me. Weird - very odd. I know not to give any financial information out - and I have a PO Box - so I gave her that. She wants me to keep the dogs at my home, which I have not even advertised as an option. I told her I have a dog, and before we go forward all the dogs would have to meet. She has ignored that piece. She again emailed me to confirm my PO Box so that she can send me a package with tracking...............???? What is it, a bomb!!! Then I get this letter - (I have modified it a bit) Hello There, I was checking on c. list and i came accross your post. I'm A. and My wife's name is B. We are relocating to your neighbourhood from England. I recently got a contract with a company on a private research job. However, We need someone who will help us take care of the house by doing some house work while am working. Someone that will also help in running some errands and babysitting. I will be offering you $500 weekly, i will be needing your services for two hours at any suitable time of yours, Monday and Friday. If you believe you are fit for this position in as much you will prove yourself to be a reliable and good person, I will instruct my financier to pay for the first two weeks before our arrival so as to secure your service. My financier will be making out a check to you before our arrival. You will receive a Cashier's check which you will deduct your wages for the first two weeks and the remaining funds will be used to buy foodstuffs and other things needed in the house. You will be getting the foodstuffs on the day of our arrival which will be the 30th of this month. Actually our flights from England will arrive at nights so you will be getting the foodstuffs in the morning and making all other preparations. I will also instruct my estate agent to mail the keys of the apartment to you so as to do all other necessary preparations before we arrive. You have to get all this shopping before our arrival so that we wont have to start running around when we arrive, So my financier would be needing the following Information to make out the check. Full Name: Full address with zipcode & Apt Number: Age: Gender: Phone number: Acceptance of offer: All I need from you is total honesty and sincerity. I know you will be committed to the work, You will also have a nice period of time working with my wife. I will be waiting to hear from you. Thank You So this has to be a scam of some sort, right? But how? I emailed him back to say although I may be interested, however I would need to talk to him over the phone to know more about the position. He emailed me the same letter back instead of calling. I feel very uneasy now - something isn't right here - but I cannot figure out how they would be scamming me. Any ideas?
