Hello! I am a president of an Internet development company in Moscow and I need your help. My company develops complex database-driven web applications and provides technical support for foreign corporations' web sites developed for the Russian-language market. In addition, we also perform consulting projects for American-based companies. However, since my company is based in Russia, we have trouble establishing a bank account in the United States, necessary to accept direct ACH/wire transfers from our North American clients. Our accountant advised me to find an intermediary who is based in the United States and can act on our behalf to accept payments from our clients. That's why I am asking for your assistance in facilitating transfer of payments to be received from our clients in the united States. For your assistance we can offer you a commission based on a set percentage of the payments received. Based on the past projects, we are expecting gross payments to be approximately $9,000 - $20,000 per month. This will translate to approximately $2,000 per month for you in commissions and require about 4-5 hours of work per month with absolutely no investment or hassle on your part. If you are interested and would like to receive more information, please reply at your earliest convenience. Please respond with your resume and availability, we are looking to fill the position in the next 20 days. Send any questions and your resume to:firstname.lastname@example.org Yours truly, Vladimir Malinin President, BSN.Inc. Moscow,Russian Federation, 112347,35-89 Novopeshanaya
