What would you think of this craiglist reply to offering baby sitting?

I just saw your profile on Craigslist.Iʼm interested in you.I am a PAID
MEMBER on the site so thats how I got your email.I am a SINGLE
Father(Widower)presently in the United Kingdom and moving to {USA} in a few days with my kid for a Better Job Offer as an IT Expert Permanently.I will be very busy because it is a new job offer and will be needing your assistance
when I start the job in the USA.I got a 4year old kid who i will want you to
help me look after due to my work schedule.I will like to know how much it will
cost me for you to take care of her for about 2weeks before i finally settle
down and if i notice good result,i will want her to always be with you until i
find a good woman to settle down with but will always be coming to see her.
Looking to read from you.
Best Regards.

  • scam...I post a lot on Craigslist and I get a similar email almost daily. Plus, you don't have to pay for membership with craigslist unless you post in certain cities' job section.

  • Sounds like a scam to me, if he's from UK wouldn't he have better English? Plus nobody pays for craigslist, and thirdly even if it was real who in their right mind would actually do this? Leave a child with a total stranger from another country while they look for suitable woman to raise her..? Seriously, I would delete it and forget about it.
