I'd only do this job if I got 2 thirty minute breaks and an hour for lunch.

NOTE: As soon as you get the payment (uncovered cheque), you will deduct $200 and wire the remaining balance to the wardrobe stylist (certainly before your bank finds out the Nigerian cheque isn't covered).
Ha, it's refreshing to see this good old scam is still alive and kicking. The key word is wiring. If the stylist lived near you, why should you wire her?
