Grrreat Opportunity!

by ranpen on April 27, 2010

I am a young individual with a professional job. However, I need to pickup a second job to make some extra money. I cannot get a part-time job as my hours are all over the place. Any suggestions with regards to where/how I can make more money? (without investing/spending money!) Something I can do online at home or on my blackberry??
Thanks.

Greetings,
I noticed that you seem to be in desperate need of a second job.  I think I might just be able to help you out.  You can work from home, as long as you have a computer.  Is this something you might be interested in?

Thanks,
RP

Hey Randy,

Thanks for contacting. Yes I have a computer.  Is it possible to get details regarding this opportunity.

Thank you.

Greetings!
I would be happy to give you the details regarding this incredible opportunity.  I’ll need you to list as many animals as you possibly can (use the encyclopedia, if necessary).  Once you’ve done this,  I’ll need you to use Microsoft Paint to illustrate each of the animals.  Please be as accurate as possible.  Include all the noticeable characteristics of each creature, and depict them as they would appear in nature.  For example, if you were illustrating a Great White Shark, you’d want to make sure to include his sharp, sharp teeth, his dorsal fin, and tail.  And, you wouldn’t find a Great White Shark say…playing Checkers with a moose in the Australian Outback.  So, you’d want to make sure that the Great White Shark is swimming in the ocean amongst large schools of fish and plankton.  To give you some direction,  I’ve attached a picture of a bear standing in the forest.
When can you start?

Thanks,
RP

No way.  How much do I get paid? Are you serious? Why do you need this?

Hello there,
I will try to answer your questions in the order that you asked them.
1)Yes way.  (Was “No way” supposed to be a question?  I wasn’t sure, considering both the absence of a question mark and the general pattern of your email).
2)You will get paid based on the quantity and quality of your work.  For example, if you are able to produce 5 illustrations on MS Paint, you could make at least $10.  However, if I find that the illustrations are inaccurate,  then you might only make $1.75.
3)I am serious, indeed.
4)I need this to complete my portfolio.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
RP

Howdy,
I understand.  I’m sure that you are incredibly busy looking for a second job.  Some people just don’t have what it takes to fulfill my requirements.  I’m confident that I will find somebody to seize this opportunity.
Best of luck!

Thanks,
RP
