Hi a2sy, I am looking for freelancers based in Japan and I found your profile in Freelancer.com's directory. Would you be interested in doing a very fast and simple job for me? Here are the details:
A certain Japanese online shop is selling some limited edition items. However, because supplies are limited, the shop won't let everyone purchase those items. The shop is deciding who is allowed to make a purchase by using a lottery system.
I want to enter the lottery, but I can't because I live in the United States. The shop only allows people with a Japanese address to enter.
So, I want to hire freelancers based in Japan to enter the lottery. Anyone in any city in Japan is eligible to do this job, as long as they have a permanent address in Japan that can accept parcels.
Entering the lottery does NOT cost money. Each person can only enter the lottery once. The shop will notify the winners later this month.
This is a simple task that will take no more than 10 minutes of your time. So, I am offering you $10 to complete it.
Here is how I expect this project will proceed:
1. I will set up your milestone.
2. You will accept the job.
3. I will email you the link to the shop.
4. You will enter the lottery.
5. The shop will announce the winners of the lottery later this month.
6. I will release your milestone.
I will pay you whether or not you are selected as a winner.
What happens if you win the lottery?
If you win, I will need you to buy the items and mail them to me. This will be considered a separate job than the current lottery entry job. I will pay you the full cost of the items and shipping, and a fee for doing this shopping service for me. We can discuss exact details about this second job later, if you win.
So what do you think? Can you do this job for me?
I need you to enter the shopping lottery within the next 24 hours of receiving this offer, so let me know soon if you can do it.
If you have questions, feel free to ask me.
