I hope this email meets you in good health. I feel quite safe dealing with you
in this mutual beneficial transaction. Though, this medium Internet has been
greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the
fastest way to get in touch with people.

I am Mr. Daniel Smith and am an artist, I am 40 years old and paint for a
living, and have been painting for the past 18 years. I am married with a wife
and 2 lovely kids. I have a vacancy opening available in my studio. I am just
setting up in the USA and will need a Representative to work on a part time
basis for me.

I sell Arts all over the world and have sold to both galleries and private
collectors. I am always facing serious difficulties selling my art works to my
American clients; most times they offer to pay with either Money orders or
checks which are difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom. I need someone
in the states to work as my representative and assist me in processing these
payments and I will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction made.

First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks sent by my clients
via regular mail or FedEx to get to you. For this to be possible I need your
basic personal info such as:

1. Full Name,
2. Contact Address,
3. City,
4. State,
5. Zip Code,
6. Occupation,
7. Home Phone Number,
8. Cell Phone Number,

If anyone asks for those on my behalf please do not give out this info. This is
to ensure that you will not be the victim of identity theft. After you receive
the checks you will have to go to the bank to cash them, this will happen of
course after the bank clears them. The time it takes for the checks to clear
depends on your bank, I need you to be trustworthy and honest with me for I am
ready to employ you for 6 months until I am fully established.

If you are interested in working for me, please kindly send the needed
information to my email: I await your reply
