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.

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. Since they will be making the payment
in bank transfers made payable  only to you in Australia,
you will be collecting this payments and cashing them on my
behalf. On agreement to been my representative, you will
receive  a commission of 10% of whatever amount of payment
you  receive from my associates.

1. Recieve payments from My Clients/Associates through
bank transfers into your bank account.
2. Cash the Payments at your Bank.
3. 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.

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.

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. Your job is
absolutely legal. You do not need any capital to start(non of
your personal funds is needed).

i) 18 years or older.
ii) Legally capable.
iii) Responsible, Reliable and Trustworthy.
iv) Ready to work 3-4 hours per week.
v) Able to check and respond to emails often.
vi) Easy telephone access.

I hope all is well understood. I would be glad if you accept
my proposal and I intend to commence as soon as you are ready.
Please, to facilitate the conclusion of this transaction if
accepted, do send promptly by email the following details below,
to indicate your interest.


Once these information has been received from you, it would be
forwarded to my Australian associates so they could commence
the bank transfer to you.
