Dear Sir/Madam, How are you doing. I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn alot. My names are Wayne Davis and I am 58 years of age. I just resigned my job as a research scientist for ARINI(Agricultural Research Institute of Northern Ireland and I now 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. Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research projectin the tropical regions of Asia regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this would be commencing very soon. This research program will be funded and sponsored by some of my Australian counterparts and Associates. But the only set back is that my Australian counterparts want to make payments for the research in form of bank transfer only to any of the Australian banks. Getting an accountant in Australian 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 which I am not ready to deal with. This is where I need to employ your assistance and service. WHAT I NEED YOU FOR? At this point, I will be glad if you could work with me as my representative in Australia. You will be working as my payment assistant incharge of collecting the payments from my Associates.

Deduct 10% which will be your commission/percentage on Payment processed. 4. You are to remit the balance via Money Gram or Western Union Money Transfer according to my instruction. HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN? 10% from each transaction! For instance: On receiving 6000 Dollars on my behalf, you will cash the payment and keep 10% to yourself before remitting the balance! At the beginning your commission will equal 10%,though later it will increase up to 12%! For the research, I am expecting about the sum of $95,000 in total from the clients(though the money willbe sent in installmentally due to the progress of my research). You could make over $9,500 for the little time we will be working together. ADVANTAGES? You dont have to go out of your present daily activity in order to engage in this Job(i.e. you can do this Work easily without leaving or affecting your present Job).You will work as an independent contractor right from your home /office.
