Dear Friend., Hello, I am Richard Cole, an Artist with LemonStreet Gallery. LemonStreet Gallery. is an art gallery in London - United Kingdom. We deal on Art and Craft originating mainly from Asia. Our products are diverse and of the highest quality, depicting 'comfort' and 'real affluence'. Being that Asia's traditional crafts are getting more attention as very important cultural assets,we are proud of our products and so we'd like to show them to the rest of the world. Thus, we are currently expanding our market base beyond Europe, into North america, USA and Africa. WHY WE NEED YOU. No doubt,doing business across borders has never been an easy task. We are currently searching for a reliable representatives who can help us establish a medium of getting to our various customers in their regions (North America & United States). The time frame it takes to have their payment checks sent to us and processed is rather long. This has caused a setback in our sales. The representatives we sought after will serve as our payment officers/contact persons in these regions, but most especially we are on HIGH demand right now for representatives in the USA. Their sole responsibility will be to receive and process payment checks on our behalf. We believe this will go a long way in bridging the gap between us (the sellers) and our customers(the buyers). At this point,we cannot overemphasize the fact that only honest, reliable and competent person(s) is/are needed by us.We will be glad to welcome you on board if you fit in and have an interest to work for us. REMUNERATION. We have a rather generous and highly competitive remuneration package for our new team of sales representatives. We offer a 10% commission on every payment made via you to us. THERE IS NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION AT YOUR END; all we need from you is total reliability, honesty and your committiment to work for us.There are no hassles as this is a work at home opportunity and would'nt in any way interfere with your present job or status.
