Got this email today, I think it probably came from my listing on craigslist (I get a ton of spam from my posts). BTW I am listed under house hold services but my title clearly says window and gutter cleaning only.
I’m Kate Jenson. i need a professional Cleaner to handle my Home. I have been away from home over 2 months, am in western Africa for some special project and it has finished , so i need a cleaner to clean up everywhere for me before i arrive back home . Its 2 rooms, 1 SittingRoom, 1 Bathroom/Toilet and a Kitchen. This is all that you have to clean, arrange everywhere and mop the Floor and use your Equipment for that.
I need this service fast, because i have to arrive in the states by 27/February/09 and i want this cleaning before then, or when i arrive, i will stay in a Hotel for a Day or 2 to enable you do the cleaning. ,but for safety purpose i will call you as soon as i arrive , then give you the keys of the House, so you can do this cleaning while am arround. I will forward the Pictures of the Rooms to you in the next mail.
I need your assistance and am Trusting you for this, cos its not that easy to trust someone that u have not seen in person, but i believe we will get to know each other soon and this will favour you well, cos am a very easy going person and well understanding. My Boss wants to pay me off for the Project that i attended in Africa, so he’s paying me with an International money order/cashiers cheque, which can’t be cashed in Africa. Its $2840 USD, so i want you to cash it, then take $500 for your Advance service charges, then send $2000 to my Travelling Agent, cos its for my Flight Ticket Fees, then keep the remaining balance ($340) for me till i arrive .
If you are interested doing the Cleaning Service for me, i need the following Details Below:
FULL NAME :
FULL ADDRESS :
Must be Able to provide References On Request.
I need this information to issue the check, because i have to do everything fast and also my Boss will be travelling on a Business trip, so he needs the necessary information , so he can issue the check and send it to you. immediately he sends the check, i will forward the Tracking Number of the payment to you and i want you to know that the most important thing is for you to clean my apartment very well and arrage it in good order.
You have to do a perfect cleaning in my House and make it as neat as possible.
Waiting to hear from you.
