Hello,

Are you looking for a part time Job? Can you do something apart from your current job? Are you available to run errands? I am looking for someone who can handle my personal and business errands at his/her spare time.

Someone who can offer me these services: Mail services: Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS (nothing illegal). Shop for Gifts Sit for delivery ( at your home) or pick items up at nearby post office at your convenience. Let me know if you will be able to offer me any of these services.

Thank you!
Best Regards:
Matthew N.

A definite scam! The purpose of this scam is to make the victim a mule, to foreward documents to other victims, and to foreward fake checks, or receive payments from other victims. I don't know if this lad is baitable, but you can try.
Bait safe, and aply for a mentor if you haven't done so already.

edit: the lad could also want to use you for buying goods with stolen creditcards.

This lad might eventually come up with cute death threats if he has sent you a fake cheque and you refuse to cash it. Of course, you need a Premium membership to use our safe drop boxes - you would not want to give him your real address.
