This Lady texted me to start with from the number : 224xxxxxxx which wasn’t included in her email. Her emails were as follows: Thank you for replying to my text. My name is Karen. I recently moved from San Diego to Phoenix with my family but i`m moving to your area on 26th of December and i will need a nanny for my son immediately. His name is Joe, 6years old and the time would be from 9am to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays only. This is a long term position but its fine to start temporary. Some weekdays are also flexible if you are available but we may need to discuss that in person. I`m willing to pay 18/hour. I believe its a great pay and i`m paying that much because i want quality care for my son. The start date is 27th of December. I lost my husband and a 4months old baby in December. It was my late husband`s birthday and he decided to take the kids out while i was still at work. Joe happens to be the only survival from the accident but he currently uses a wheelchair. I have had terrible times in the last few months and this is one of the reasons i have decided to move because staying here brings back some sad memories. Kindly be honest if you have experience with childcare because i want the best care for Joe. I`m hard of hearing and can only communicate via writing, reading lips or text messaging. I hope that isn`t a problem? I`m easy going and love to laugh. I can send you a picture of me and joe in my next email. It will be nice to read about you. I want a nanny who is willing to be a friend and family. Please note that i have a few applicants for this position but i made you our first choice so i wouldnt appreciate a waste of time. Make sure to include your complete name, address including zip code and cell phone number in your response so i could check the map to read the distance between us also to have your address on file. You may ask questions in case you have any. I await your quick response. Regards, Karen. Thank you for your email. We are moving in on 26th of December. The sitting could be anywhere but if you want Joe at your place,I wouldn’t have any problem dropping him. You re free to do outdoors if you wish. I suggest that we meet anytime before you start working. That way we can get to know each other in person and share some interest about ourselves and the babysitting activities. As said in my previous email, the last couple of months hasn’t been good and i wouldn’t want to get stocked with my Son on arrival so i`m willing to make a deposit to you ahead of time to ensure a secured appointment to avoid disappointment. The total cost of your pay per weekend is $252($18/hour x 7hours/day = $126/day x 2days). I hope i can issue your first week deposit check with the below information. XXXXXXXX Deleted to protect identity XXXXXXXX Kindly let me know if everything is clear so i may proceed. Attached is a picture of me and Joe. Do have a great day ahead and i await your quick response. Rgds, Karen. Thank you for your prompt response and i`m glad that we’re on the same page. I’m aware of your trip. I have made arrangement to get Joe a powered wheelchair and i got a cheaper one in Los Angeles. I`m wondering if i could have the seller deliver it to you so you can help receive the wheelchair and pay the seller on delivery to ensure Joe have access to the chair immediately we arrive. The one he is currently using isnt ours so we re not moving with it. The wheelchair cost $2523, I will be sending you a check to cover your first weekend deposit payment and the cost of the wheelchair so you can take out your deposit and pay the cost of the wheelchair to the seller when she delivers it. After our meeting on Friday evening, We would go with you to pick it up. The check will be made in the amount of $2775. 252 will be for your deposit and the balance of 2523 will be paid to the wheelchair lady. Please understand that the aim of having you purchase the wheelchair is to ensure that the wheelchair is available for Joe on arrival. The wheelchair isn’t assembled. Its still packed in pieces so its not a big package at all and you do not need to assemble it unless you are willing to on the day we meet. Due to his condition, i wouldn’t want any delay with the arrangement of the chair so you can let me know if everything is clear so i can go ahead with processing the payment. I truly appreciate you and i`m hoping for the best from you. I may not respond to email promptly but you can always text me. My cell is (817) xxx xxxx, alt; (817) xxx xxxx. Please do not forget that i`m hard of hearing so text only. NO CALLS! I await your email so i can proceed to mailing your check. Rgds, Karen.
