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. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US 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 JOB DESCRIPTION. 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. HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN? 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%! ADVANTAGES 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.
