 Thank you for your interest to our offer and for sending us your registration documents. Briefly 
about the job. Depending on the current situation we will ask you to use your personal bank account

an e-mail with all the necessary information and also call you. 
Your task is the following:
1.      To notify us about the transfer as soon as possible (the notification is sent by e-mail).
2.      To withdraw cash in the nearest branch of your bank.
3.      To take immediately 5% of the transferred amount as your commission. 
4.      To transfer the remaining amount to us the same day by Money Gram or Western Union (to make 
this transfer you need to go to the nearest WU or MG office).
 NOTE: independently on the money transfer method the transaction fees are deducted from the 
remaining 90%, not from your commission.

We would like to kindly ask you to send us your bank account information accordingly. All the 
payments will be transferred to your bank account, therefore please inform us on the following:
