Good day, 

We are currently seeking upbeat people to work at home immediately. If you have a computer and a 
phone you can work for us.

My name is Charles Baker. 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 ODI (Overseas 
Development Institute, Poverty and Public Policy Group) but I still work as a freelance consultant 
for the institute and also assist the poverty and public policy 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 Agricultural Plants Species and assist the poverty and 
public policy and this would be commencing very soon, However my funding were by my American 
counterparts which send me bunch of payments mostly in US based Cashier's Check. 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 
which I am not ready to deal with as I would be traveling a lot in the meantime. So presently, I 
would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my payment representative in the states, 
this way I would advise my clients to issue and make these payments out to you on my behalf, you 
could then cash them easily, withdraw 10% of the total amount on these Checks as your commission 
and then send the 

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.

10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via checks, 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 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. 


30 years or older legally capable responsible 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. 
If you are interested, please note when replying, send us your 
Name, Full Address, (not P.O.Box), City, State, Zip code, Phone Number(s), Age, Sex, Country. 

Thanks for your anticipated action and I hope to hear back from you.
