Beware Scam Artists- it started with a text


Out of the blue: Rifkinscott46@gmail.com sent a text inquiring about my business. I Googled the name and area 
code and sent a quick response.

The following day, She sent me this description of why she needs  a Personal Assistant:

There are Neon, Red Flags waving in every paragraph clearly indicating Scam and a hoax:

#1. Poorly written, lousy English
– Clueless as to where I reside
– Clumsy approach
– Refers to “USA”
– Wants to pay $15.00 an hour
– Wants to use my address to receive her packages
– Strange Requests: “Stay at your house to get my mails”

Please do things for me:

* Mail services (Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS)
* Shop for Many  Gifts
* Do my Bill payment (pay my bills on my behalf)
* 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 or all of these services.

Where are you located?
I will love to meet up with you to talk about this job but I am currently away on business.   

I will prepay you in advance to do all my various shopping.
I will also have my mails and packages forwarded to your address.

If you will be unable to stay at your house to get my mails, I can have it shipped to a post office near you and then you can pick it up at your convenience.

When you get my mails/packages, you are required to mail them to where I want them mailed to.
You don’t have to use money out of your pocket.

All you have to do is have the package(s) shipped to wherever I want and do my shopping.
You are allowed to open the packages to reveal its content.
All expenses and taxes will be covered by me. You will work between 15 to 20hrs a month. The pay is $300 weekly. That is not bad offer, no ?

I need your service because I am constantly out of town.

I will be returning to USA in the month of May so this process will be going on till then.
If you don’t mind, I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this long term.

Well, let me know if you are able to handle the position. I hope  hear from you soon.

Dear Reader: Everyone should be hyper vigilant when it comes to queries that come from out of nowhere.

briefcase-161032__340

A Good Reflection on You.

Client: Up a creek – without a paddle – OAR – a car

canoe-63457__340
An unpleasant turn of events left my client, George W, up a creek with no paddle – and no car.

           George W was the first to email me Monday morning and say:
           “I need a wife, can you help?

His real wife, Wendy, was in Los Angeles for the week.

First: I provided transportation to get George W first, to the DMV.

(For the record: Marin County DMV has the quickest, most efficient office and is located mere minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge.)
Arrival at 8:00- 8:30 am guarantees a quick processing)

George W, on a cane, also had myriad appointments and needed someone to drop him at the front door of various office buildings.

While he waited in waiting rooms, I took his shopping list to
***Brownies Hardware.
(best place to pick up light bulbs, PVC and a prepaid card for parking meters)
and then to
***Whole Foods
He asked me to devise three  night’s worth of menus: simple and cost-effective. This is easily done with one of Whole Foods pre-cooked chickens and a well thought out produce items and embellishments.

Then to:
***Trader Joe’s – another list of practical items for the week
***Locust Cleaners, and, finally  to pick up his favorite hair products at
Walgreen’s at Laurel Village.

When George W  was done with appointments – I was done with errands.

Smooth sailing all the way.images

Yes, I charge: an hourly rate, mileage, and expenses.

Got Computer? Got Questions?

There are gazillions of Apple Product Fans

and just as many questions, qualms, quandaries when it comes to  Questions/Quick Fixes, crashes, and the dreaded “I forgot My Password Syndrome.”

In Marin County, Chris Harnish is The Apple Guru for anyone over 50…his newsletter is a treasure trove of information, tips, tricks and updates on Apple Products. He makes house calls – is so smart and pleasant and calm.

Online “Ask Ben” (aka) Here’s the Thing

is a super resource for myriad “Apple and other” conundrums.

 

Happy New Year

Allow me to be Your Personal Shopper – Kerry On


unnamed-3 copy 2

Leave the shopping to me…

You are busy – very busy. And while you would love to pick up items at Rainbow Grocery, Target, Bryan’s and Cal Mart – and drop off those bags to Goodwill or Salvation Army – “free time” to do so  is not always available.

Sarah M. flys to ORD once a week and her meetings last 2-4 days. She follows a very healthy and very strict diet. She knows exactly what she wants and prepares a weekly list for me. Once or twice a month, I do Sarah’s grocery shopping; I clean out, organize,  -then re-stock her refrigerator with new purchases. She returns home to find  a wide variety of high quality, fresh produce and beverages.

The Perfect Gift –  Give the Gift of Time


Kerry On: A Gift Certificatecouponkerryyonjpg

Rusty G. gave his best friend “Me” as a housewarming present.
Well, he actually he gave her three hours of my time/talent
for packing, downsizing, donating  and preparing before the movers were to arrive.

Moving Experiences?

Janet T. was moving from a huge loft South of Market to a much smaller space in Laurel Village.
In preparation to sell her condo she needed to get things wrapped, packed, labeled, and staged and ready to put on the market.
In tandem, we packed up three vast closets and the pantry which was filled with copious cooking utensils – it was like a mini Williams-Sonoma store.

Janet T promptly saw the advantage of teamwork and my organizing skills and signed up for an additional five hours.

Mission accomplished!photo-dishes

My clients request myriad tasks: I’ve picked up laundry, groceries, documents, meals, organized complicated Expense Reports and researched Car Insurance for a busy Executive.

I’ve arranged, assembled, shred, and sorted. Closets, cupboards, garages and drawers – are all in my repertoire.
