My name is Steve Jackson, I am a freelance researcher. I would be very
interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could
earn a lot. I just resigned my job as a research scientist for IFR
(Institute of Food Research) but i still work as a freelance consultant
for the institute which gives me very much time to do my own work which
is basically being a freelance researcher who could be employed by
research institutes to do research projects anywhere in the world. 

Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research project
in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding rare and vulnerable
plant species and this would be commencing very soon, However my
findings were by my American counterparts which sent me the bunch of
payments mostly in US based money orders. Getting an accountant in the
states or opening an account would have been my best choice but I have a
deadline to meet and taking any of those choices would cost me time and
a whole lot of other requirements I am not ready to deal with as I would
be traveling a lot in the meantime. So presently, assuming you would be
able to deal with cash, "I would be willing to employ you on contract
basis to be my payment representative back in the states, this way I
could issue and make these money orders out to you, you could then cash
them easily, withdraw 10% of the total amount on these money orders as
your commission and then send the rest back to me through !
Western Union wire transfer". 

1. Receive payment from Clients 
2. Cash Payments at your Bank 
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed. 
4. Forward balance after deduction of 
Percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send
payment to (Payment is to forwarded by Western Union Money Transfer). 

10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via cheques
or money orders on our behalf. You will cash the money and keep $700
(10% from $7000) for yourself! At the beginning your commission will
equal 10%, though later it will increase up to 12%! 

You do not have to go out as you will work as an independent contractor
right from your home office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can earn
up to $3000-$4000 monthly depending on time you will spend for this job.
You do not need any capital to start. The employees who make efforts and
work hard have a strong possibility to become managers. Anyway our
employees never leave us. 

18 years or older 
Legally capable 
Ready to work 3-4 hours per week. 
With PC knowledge 
E-mail and internet experience (minimal) 

And please know that Everything is absolutely legal, that's why You have
to fill a contract! I would be glad if you accept my offer 
and I intend to commence on the job as soon as you are ready.
