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. 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 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. A. Your FULL NAME 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. Thanks for your anticipated action.
