My name is ( Gary John), I am married with 2 kids. We are relocating
to the US from United Kingdom. The purpose of our relocation to the
United States is basically because of the Seminar on United Nations
Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),United Nations
Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), 6th meeting of the Ad
Hoc Open-ended Working Group on Article 8(j) and Related Provisions
(WG8J 6), and the North American industry association Green Roofs for
Healthy Cities (GRHC) in partnership with the World Green Roof
Infrastructure Network (WGRIN).
The duration of our stay in the United states will be 8 months, so i
need someone who could help take care of the house, Help my Wife and
watch my kids while am off to work also Someone that can help in
running some errands. The basic reason for this post and search for an
helper is because my wife is Physically challenged and has been on the
wheel chair for about 13 months now so it's been hard for her to take
care of the kids and get around on her own.
I'm willing to Pay $400 weekly plus $50 for transportation or gas fee,
i will be needing your services for only 5 hours daily and at any
suitable time that fits your schedule but preferably in the afternoons
between 12 noon and 7pm, Mondays through Fridays.. I believe you will
be fit for this position in as much you will prove yourself to be a
reliable and good person.
We have a financier that is based in the United states and he will be
handling the payment and some other expenses, so he will be the one
that will be taking care of your payment as well, I will instruct him
to pay for the firsts week before our arrival so as to secure your
service, actually i should have paid for more weeks but i will extend
the payment if am satisfied with your service after 2 weeks.
My financier will be making out a check to you before our arrival, you
will be receiving a check of $2,7850 out of which you will be
deducting your pay for the firsts week and you will be using the
remaining to buy Groceries/Food Stuffs and other things needed in the
house, you will be getting this Food Stuffs before our arrival date
which is on or before August 25th 2011.
As of now, I am still unsure of the Physical address of the apartment
where i will be staying but will instruct The estate agent to mail the
keys/Address of Our apartment to you as soon as the place is ready so
that you can do all other necessary preparations before Our arrival, I
have reasons to believe that the painter and electrician are working
on getting the apartment fixed and ready for use.amd which is very
close to your location
I will email you the shopping list as soon as i have gotten
confirmation that you have received the payment. That being said,my
financier would be needing the following Information to make out a
check payment to you immediately upon your acceptance of the Job:
Name to be on Check :
Home address or Office Address :
City :
State :
Zip code :
Age :
Sex :
Phone number very important:
Email address:
If myself and my wife are pleased with your service within 2 weeks,
there will be other incentives. However, we need a more mature person
that is above 20yrs of age who is very knowledgeable to handle things
without much supervision.
I will be waiting to hear from you.
Best Regards
Gary John
