craigslist job ads hired me as a personal assistant and sent me a check for my pay
Here’s a copy of an email I received for an administrative assistant position.
Please make other job-hunters aware.
Thanks for your site,
please read the attached Agreement. You should print it, fill in, sign and send a scanned copy via email.
Most of our customers prefer to use bank transfer to pay for our services as it’s considered the safest and cheapest method of payment.
I want to stress again that you are not required to make a single payment either at the beginning of the work or in the process of the work.
According to the terms of our license, we pay taxes from all income we receive within the country of registration. Complying with the tax legislation we must conform to certain regulations:
1. We must have a local resident representative to conduct business.
2. All business operations must be executed in a country’s currency.
3. Our local employee must perform all business operations.
This means that requests and payments must be executed by our local representative, and processing can be carried out in our processing centers. Firstly, this helps us to save on employees’ wages and, secondly, it spreads our business throughout the world. Therefore
we use our local representatives to receive transfers directly in a country of his/her residence.
I would like to clarify the situation with taxes. Under the Agreement you assume full responsibility for paying taxes from your earnings. Our company issues a 1099 form at the end of the year.
This work does not require a large amount of time. As a rule, it takes one or two hours a day to complete all the tasks.
There are distinct opportunities for career growth in our company. The most successful employees gradually gain a position of a Regional Representative, with a few subordinates and a large scope of work. As a rule, this position is achieved within a year or a year and a half.
This is a good offer which should not be rejected. If you do not agree to work with us, please write us as soon as possible, as there are many applicants for this vacancy, and the number of positions is limited. We ask you to make a decision within two working days.
We respect and promote workers with a conscientious attitude to their work. The following will be required for your employment:
1. to print, complete and sign the Agreement;
2. to send us scanned copies via email:
a) a copy of the signed Agreement
b) a copy of any ID paper – driving license, passport or other document (will be kept in your personal file at our HR Department)
We will be glad to welcome you as our new representative.

Today there are as many scams as real jobs on Craigslist. And elsewhere!
This is TRUE. Trust me…. It’s far less than it was five years ago. We’ve made progress.
Hey thanks i was reading it and i was like hmmm…sounds fake thanks for the 411
I was just reading their email/Agreement, and as soon as I saw the classic 10% off-the-top commission/Western Union, MoneyGram wire transfer — I knew it was just another scam. Someone put alot of time and effort into typing this “Agreement” and making it look credible; perhaps that person should put that kind of effort into a legit job him/herself!
