Dear Sir/Madam, L & M International Limited is a Latvian textile company. We produce and distribute clothing materials such as batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume worldwide. We have reached big sales volume of textile materials in the U.K and now are trying to penetrate the AMERICAN market.

Despite the fact that the American market is new for us we already have a regular clientele which speaks for itself. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US? The international money transfer tax for legal entities (companies) in Latvia is 25%, whereas for the individual it is only 7%.There is no sense for us to work this way, while tax for international money transfer made by a private individual is 7% .That's why we need you! We need agents to receive payment for our textiles (American Express, cashier and official checks) and to resend the money to us via Money Gram or Western Union Money Transfer. This way we will save money because of tax decreasing. JOB DESCRIPTION 1. Receive payment from our Clients 2. Cash Payments at your Bank 3. Deduct 10%, which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed. 4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to/ or any of our clients overseas (Payment is to forwarded by or Western Union Money Transfer). NOTE: All charges of the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER will be deducted from the money, so you are rest assured that you wouldn't spend a dime out of your personal money. HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN? 10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 usd via checks on our behalf. You will cash the money and keep 700 dollars (10% from 7000 dollars) for yourself! At the beginning your commission will equal 10%, though later it will increase up to 12%!
