Dear Sir/Madam,
 
My name is Carl Jones.I am a freelance researcher.I would be very interested in offering you a 
part-time paying job in which you could earn alot.I just resigned my job as a research scientist 
for AFBI(Agri-Food Biosciences Institute) but i still work as a freelance consultant for the 
instistute 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.
 
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 
West Africa regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this would be commencing very soon, 
However my fundings 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.
 
JOB DESCRIPTION?
1. Recieve payment from Clients
2. Cash Payments at your Bank
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.
4. Forward balance afer deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices 
you will be contacted to send payment to(Payment is to be forwarded by Western Union Money 
Transfer).
 
HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN?
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via cheques or money orders on our 
behalf. You will cash the money and keep $700 (10% from $7000) for yourself! At the beginning your 
commission will equal 10%, though later it will increase up to 12%!
 
ADVANTAGES
You do not have to go out as you will work as an independent contractor 
right from your home office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can earn up to $3000-4000 monthly 
depending on time you will spend for this job. You do not need any capital to start. The employees 
who make efforts and work hard have a strong possibility to become managers. Anyway our employees 
never 
leave us.
