Part time Job Opportunity My name is Bob Smith and I?m fully resident in Ireland, Dublin. I just came about your email address through an online email listing and I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a lot without quitting your present Job or having problem with your employers. I just resigned my job as a research scientist but I still work as a freelance consultant for the institute 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.Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and
this would be commencing very soon. However, my funding was by my American counterparts who send 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. 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 payments in form of Money Orders, Cashier's Check, travelers? checks, etc out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw 10% of the total amount on these payment instruments as your commission and then send the rest back to me through wire transfer. Please, bear it in mind that we would be dealing with quite a handful of cash and you could be making up to $5000 just working with me in a short period of time within 1-2 months. 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, please email me back so we could make concluding arrangements.
