Type of a scam Employment
I applied to a seemly legitimate advertisement on indeed. Within three days, I got the message below (#1) to my private indeed email.. however, the original post said nothing about doing remote work for someone abroad. It said office work, as a secretary... no work from home mention.
After recieving this odd message, I did question this part and ask for more identification from the indivdiual. They skipped over most of my questions, responding with the second message provided below also. This is where I questioned the legitimacy, as the individual had no problem offering me money to 0ay for office supplies when they had not even offered a employment opportunity. I asked for more information prior to providing them more, and my email was blocked completely - I can no longer contact them. They had originally responded within 12 hours - so I took it as a confirmation that they were attempting to scam me.

Thanks for your email about your interest in the Admin Assistant position.You have an exciting personality from your resume, and you are a better fit for the job. Its part-time Executive/personal assistant work, the position is home-based and flexible (You can be in any location to carry out any of the activities). My name is Charlotte Mikayla, and I am an independent Architect, professional Photographer, motivational speaker and a lecturer. I make portraits and cover all types of meetings, conferences, events, and festivities, usually on assignment.My work has been published in many publications and books. I bring a unique teaching style to students which guarantee creative and fun to learn by all student photographers while elevating them to new, exciting photographic heights that they have dreamed of. When I can, I travel, capturing some of the most beautiful places in the world.
Photography for me is all about the aesthetic. I like to create beautiful images. And I find beauty everywhere, especially in the imprint of life on people’s faces and on the landscape. I tell stories through my pictures. I especially love the nuances of black and white imagery. So much narrative is told in the gray areas.
I often conduct Live slide/talk lectures on Understanding Exposure, the Art of Seeing, Macro Photography and Photographing People throughout Germany, Canada, USA and Asia. I am presently in a workshop in Sydney, Australia and I will be here till the end of next week, after which I will be in Dallas,Texas for a workshop but will meet you before heading for the event in Dallas,Texas.
