Please note that this job may take 2-3 hours of your time on a weekly basis and will give you lots of free time to do other jobs.We are looking only for the worker who satisfies our requirements and will be a competent assistant.We are glad to offer this job position to you and the best of your cooperation is highly needed.

Charges for western union/Money Gram will be paid by us and not from your commission.Local Money transfers takes barely minutes or sometimes an hour,so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately.Also,all checks and money orders sent to you are all tax free,so you do not have to bother about the Irs or any other government agency when doing your taxes.Please Note that an Employment/Application Form Will Be Sent To You if you decide to accept our offer.
