Good tidings to you as you read. My name is ERIC TURNER. I am a freelance researcher. I was born in 
Baltimore Maryland in the year 1967, I presently live in the United kingdom, with my kids, pets and 
the love of my life.I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you 
could earn a lot. I just came about your email address and your brief profile through an email 
listing affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce. 
Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research project in the tropical regions of 
AUSTRALIA and the U.A.E. regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this would be commencing 
very soon, However my funding 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. 
These payments are in Money Orders or Checks and they would be written out to you in your name and 
sent to you via courier, so all you need do is process the payments, then deduct your percentage 
and wire the rest back. 
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 US-D via checks or money orders is 700 US-D 
comission for you on our behalf. 
You do not need any office because you will work as an independent contractor right from your home 
or office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can earn up to $3000-4000 monthly depending on time 
you will spend doing this job. You do not need any capital to start and it will not affect your 
present job if you have any. 
This is absolutely legal, that's why you have to fill a contract! 
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence On starting as soon as you are 
ready. If you are interested, email me Back so we could make concluding arrangements. 
Please note when replying fill the format below 
To get started, I will need the following (8) details. 
B. Your Address where the Payments should be sent to via courier. 
C. Telephone numbers (Cell phone and home phone but not voice mail.) 
D. Age 
E. Sex 
F. Occupation 
G. Name of company you have done this kind of work for if any 
H.ATTESTATION:I ___________________________________hereby accept the 
job as a representative of the above mentioned company 
here in the United States, to receive payments on 
behalf of the company. Payment recieved by me shall be 
processed, make deduction of 10% as agreed and forward 
the balance payment via to any of the company's 
regional warehouses that will given to me later. I 
shall also inform the company a week ahead if 
eventually l want to discontinue this job, so as to 
terminate all payments coming my way to avoid conflict.

from you.
