She will be in town for few weeks or a month on vacation and she is presently pregnant, she will be going out three or four times a week and she will be spending at least 3 hours for shopping and site seeing. I want a serious and a well behaved driver . Please let me know if you be available during weekdays or weekend either is good for her though.

My wife is not under any treat or whatsoever, I just want her to be safe while she is there . I believe you are a good and fit for this job and you will take good care of her, in as much you will prove yourself as reliable and a good person. I am offering you $500 weekly and you will make yourself available for 3 or 4 times a week to her schedule for 3 hours each day making 12 hours weekly. Also I want you to know that my client in Us will be sending you a pay-check which will include my wife other expenses as well as that of the driver. The remaining funds will be used by my wife for her travelling expenses, accommodations and any other expenses.

I am glad to let you know that finally you have been considered to be my wife driver during her vacation to the state soon and your pay check has been issued, you will be receiving that tomorrow, just to let you know that the check was made out in your name and it will be delivered by FedEx before noon tomorrow, It is made out for the amount of $1975. you are to go ahead and cash the check at your bank, deduct your $500 and wire the rest of the cash to her trip planner in Atlanta, below is the info you need to wire the funds :

NAME : DAVID PRINCE
ADDRESS : 650 WEICA DR

Once you get it all done you are to send a confirmation e-mail with the Western Union details. The details I believe will include the following :

1 - MONEY TRANSFER CONTROL NUMBER (MTCN).
2- THE ACTUAL AMOUNT WIRED .
3- THE WIRING CHARGES PAID .

And any other needed info to get the cash picked up by Mr David.

Thanks and hope to read back from you soon.

Im not sure what should do it seems odd to me because for a so called buis. man you think he could spell better and make sense. I also don't see how someone could send money to someone they don't know. I have never spoken to this person over the phone or in person. I applied for it on craigslist and it just said that it was for a driver wanted in my area in la but all the other details came in the emails. I guess my question is what should i do if i do get a check? take it to the bank, the police, rip it? this person does have my home ad.# name and resume but nothing like my social
