no... this involves pet sitting for a couple from Austrailia supposedly... wanting to pay me 250.00 a week for 6 hours work.... and sending me a check or something to deposit and withdraw my first paycheck from and putting the rest on a green dot moneypak card. I am to run errands for her also besides dog walking. Check or money order or something is supposed to arrive by USPS with a tracking number Monday. Instucted to then send the card number to her so she can then forward the numbers to her agent.
My first red flag was they are importing a dog from Australia, and she didn't respond to my question about how long the dog would need to be quarantined. ( i believe it is a month) then the funky instructions about the money card and all... smells fishy, and not the kind I like to consume. If I deposit the cheque or whatever, and take my first pay out, they will have my banking info, right?


I figure the card would be theirs they would fill for expenses and pay me on... I dunno....

my other first clue was I got a text from someone I didn't know claiming they saw my profile on Care.com... but my phone number isn't on that... I email people regarding the jobs... current clients have given my phone numbers to others as a referral but it's local folks giving to local folks....

That has all the markings of something to run from to me - but mostly because it involves work... kidding - sounds fishy all the way around to me too.

I had the opportunity in business to observe many types of transactions. This starts out in the category - An offer I couldn't understand. Always a bad start.

I have heard of scams like this... will send you a large check you deposit, take your part and they get certified funds for balance.... great until the check doesn' t clear and you are out the funds you sent them...

SCAM....

Chuck,

I still have the power wheelchair that Steve chucked himself out of at the GC in my coach. I'm taking it to Florida for Papaw Steve now that I don't need it. You and Steve can drag race -- at your own risk, of course.

I thought you got rid of that already! Check nursing homes and see if they want it!

As I'm laying on my back - head to the concrete - stars circling my head and my ribs aching - I hear Barb say - oh I guess we should put the wheelie bars on. As my head clears the first thing I remember is Barb telling the story of dumping the thing on the sloping driveway on the sound.... and Who Loves YA Barb!

Whine with that cheese??

Hilton Head Island is the most unfriendly area for visiting motorists.

No way to know which streets are thru streets (or which ones end up at a security gate).

Nothing goes east/west or north/south.

Most restaurants and businesses are hidden in or behind a groves of trees. Plus, limited, if any, signage near the street. Speed limit is 40 -45 and the locals (that know where they're going) are going 50 -55.

Traffic circles on HHI don't all work the same. Right lane on some circles turn into a right only turn lane as you enter the circle.

GPS takes you on back streets because they may save you 50 feet in distance. Remember the streets go every which way. Some are not wide enough to be comfortable with a MH.

HHI is an island. I swear that you can't see water on 95% of the streets that are NEAREST the shoreline let alone the other streets.

Lots of golf courses but you can't see any for the trees.
