How do you do?
Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I got your contact information from your country's public record and we are in search for a WORTHY REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR COMPANY, WINGAS
My name is Michael Sasse (Head of Public Relations, WINGAS Companies).
I would be very interested in giving you a part-time paying job as a cash representative for WINGAS Companies, in the United States/Canada, in which you could earn a lot. This job would be based on contract and commission terms, it is a part-time job and it would involve quite a lot of trust and honesty. This project has also been developed not to affect your present job nor bring about any form of stress but in order to help take care of those extra costs. Meanwhile, this is 100% legal and there is no start up cost required.
WINGAS GmbH is a joint venture of Wintershall AG in Kassel, the largest German producer of oil and gas, and the world’s largest producer of natural gas. The company has been active in the gas supply industry since 1990 and supplies natural gas to public utilities.

Also, I can assure you that your insurance, Health and housing allowance will be catered for (Effective after 1 months of Application). This is acknowledged as part of our policy. You may decline the policy offer anyway.
Your willing to work as a Payment Representative now will help and save time so that this project can be concluded as soon as possible and I am ready to get you started.
We would be willing to accept your application on contract basis as a staff of our company to be our payment representative back in the states/Canada, this way we could have our clients issue out payments to you, so you could then cash them easily, deduct 10% of the total amount on these payments as your commission and then send the balance over, through Money transfer.
