Hello, How are you doing today? Would you like to work from home and get paid weekly ? My name is John Mark, and have been doing artwork and paintings since i was a child.That gives me about 30 years of experience as an artist and artwork seller. I now reside in the UK and now run my Gallery and Arts store Bliss Arts in UK.I am presently looking for a book-keeper in the United States/Canada.My North American clients make payments for my works and paintings every week in form of Money Order which are not readily cashable outside the United States, so i need someone in the United States/Canada to work as my representative and assist me in processing the payments from my clients and he/she would be paid a weekly salary. I graduated from Ulianova art factory of the USSR Union of journalists in 1983.My speciality is book graphics.My artworks have been bought by the Institute of Russian economy and culture (Illinois, USA), by a private Gallery in Madrid (Spain), by the Russian Embassy in Ireland and Hungary, by "Rank Xerox" the Representation in Moscow, by "Bayer AG"company. My artworks adorn many private collections in Russia and abroad: in the USA, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Italy, Turkey, France and other countries as well as the office of the first Russian President Boris Yelzin. All i am searching for now is a reputable company or capable individual that will help establish a medium of customer service/relations in United States and Canada. I will like you to look up my webpage http://www.artrussia.ru/artists/artist_s.php?id=253&foa=f to view some of my listed works which will put you in a very right shape and get you more conversant with my work.Most of my transaction and sales are done on phone to ensure the best customer care/relations and i will be refering my North American customers to you and they will send Payment to you first before the onward shipment of artwork to the customers.Most of my customers in the United States and Canada usually get to see my artwork from the online Russian Arts Adverts and many other refferals from satisfied collectors.I intend to place as many adverts as possible in USA and Canada both online and print adverts.My Clients will be instructed to issue out the Check payments in your name and you get them cashed in your bank, deduct your 10% of the initial capital and forward the balance to my Gallery in the UK or my new branch in West Africa by Western Union/Moneygram money transfer. So all I need from you is your willingness to handle payments and North American sales and forward your information to my clients in the States or Canada and they will contact you before they issue payment in form of money order or cheques then send it via courier or mail to you and in case whereby the customer comes from you you will get 10% of sales.I am aware that you would be charged to have the money sent, the extra charges you might incur to is to be deducted from the balance of the funds after you must have deducted your salary.
