Got this one in my email today, I hope it will save someone who Google's any of the following information from becoming a victim to it:

Hello.

How are you doing? I hope you're having a pleasant day !

I'd receive your e-mail.. I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point as i based in New York .

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.

I worked at a Oil Rig Company and we import and export crude oil to the neighborhood countries, so i personally need a Personal Assistant in the country that can take good care of my contacts and e-mails in case if I'm out of the country.

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 as i want you to always check your e-mail at least every 6 hours for details on this position.

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'd want us to meet up on Yahoo chat as soon as possible so we can discuss this extensively, more so it's easier for me to convey information's once I'm online.. My Yahoo ID is the same as my e-mail address, shelia.rome@yahoo.com It may be a little difficult working out the time difference between us initially, with time however, we should get used to it.

I'm online most of the time when I'm not out or in a meeting so we should be able to have a chat sooner than you think. Do try to keep a date.

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 by next week is to run some errands out to an Orphanage,You will be making some donation to them as i always do every month..I just want to use this to test your efficiency and know how active you can work for me.

The donation will be in form of Money Order and 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,I guess you will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the nearest store around you and mail them out to any given information i provide for you or you will send the funds in cash to them..

I will get you more information on that.

I will like you to get back to me with your Contact Details such as:

Full Name:
Full Contact Address:
City:
State:
Zip Code:
Phone Number:
Occupation:
gender:
Martial:
Age:

Once i received your contact information i will get back to you with the task for this week, Understand you will also be paid as soon as you pass this first assignment, You will be paid ($500) at the end of the week.

I won't be able to call you due to my hard hearings this days as i need to see a specialist for my hear-drum soonest but i can relay call.

You can just view the website on http://www.shell.com

Hope i am clear with that.

Get back as soon as possible..

Shelia. Rome

Thanks for posting that. I’ve also tried to do many things online and I’ve met with many scams too. But it pays to dig, because there are some gold in there. It does take lots of time and effort, though.

Hi, I know there are alot of threads out there about work at home jobs. Is there really any work at home jobs that are legit or are they all a scam. I have been recently looking at slist and I never realized how many are on there. Just wanted to see if there was anyone out there I could actually trust?? Thanks for your help

When they advertise "Work at Home" right in the job title, I would say that most times it is a scam or some sort of multi-level marketing program. The true jobs that are work at home are businesses that you create or jobs that you are hired for that have the flexibility to allow you to work from home some or most of the time.

If they are going to hire you straight from an email that is answering an online ad with no questions or face to face interview, just say no.
