Hello, How do you do? My name is Peter Hollins, Chief Executive with the BHF Executive Committee, British Heart Foundation. There is an Open Vacancy in the Organization. The Board of Directors of British Heart Foundation is willing to offer you a good Part- Time paying job in which you could earn a lot.This job would be based on contract and commission terms, it is a part-time job and it would involve quite a handful of trust and honesty. If you would be interested in including a good-paying, part time job to your daily list of activities and earning up to $4000 monthly. As I have previously already informed you, my name is Peter Hollins, 42 years of age, 4 kids, all boys and the love of my life, my Wife, Tracy. The aim of the British Heart Foundation is to play a leading role in the fight against disease of the heart and circulation so that it is no longer a major cause of disability and premature death. A UK registered charity based in London which I joined in January 2000. Our Activities The BHF is the largest independent funder of heart research in the UK. We play an important role in funding education, reaching the public and health professionals and we provide life-saving cardiac equipment and support for rehabilitation and patient care. Heart Disease - the facts... Heart and circulatory disease is the UK’s biggest killer. One in five men and one in six women die from it. Every 2 minutes someone in the UK has an heart attack. Over 670,000 people in the UK have definite heart failure. 4,600 babies are born with heart defects each year. Around half will need treatment or surgery. You can read more online at the BHF www.bhf.org.uk presently, the foundation, BHF was granted funds and donations to head a charity support project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding the fight against heart disease and also supporting the treatment of many childhood Heart Illnesses. However, Our Donated Funds were by our American counterparts and they mostly come in US based Money Orders, Travelers Checks and sometimes Cashier’s Checks and are also some time done by Wire Transfers. Getting an accountant in the states or opening an account would have been our best choice but we have a deadline to meet and taking any of those choices would cost our time and a whole lot of other requirements I am not ready to deal with as I would be travelling a lot in the meantime. So presently,I would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my payment representative / Receptionist / Bookkeeper,this way they could issue and make these payments out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw Ten Percent (10%) of the total amount on these payment as your commission for the great service you would be rendering and then send the rest back to us through Western Union Money transfer. Bear it in mind that we would be dealing with quite a handful of cash and you could be making good money working with us in a short period of time.Like I said, the funds and donations was granted to head a charity support project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding the fight against heart disease and also supporting the treatment of many childhood Heart Illnesses. Once you get them in the mail, you would be cashing them at your bank, deducting Ten percent (10% Alongside the Western Union Transfer Charges ) of the total amount cashed as commission to the great effort you are rendering to help build the third world and any other transfer charges incurred during the transaction. The rest fund would be wired to us via Western Union. I have attached an employment form in this email which you could fully fill on your computer and send back as an attachment. Do provide an address where you will be able to sign for the collection of the payment. Thanks and God Bless.
