Dear Sir/Madam,

I'm an international estate agent from the United State. I sell landed properties, houses, estates, 
hotels globally.

Currently, I have a customer here in the United Kingdom who wants to purchase a house from. He 
prefers to pay me via local transfer. This has proved problematic as I do not currently have a bank 
account in the United Kingdom.

I want a honest and trust worthy person based here in the United Kingdom, who has a functional 
Lloyds TSB Bank account to work with me part time, as my representative. He/She shall be entitled 
to a ten percent (10%) commission on all successfully handled transactions.

Once I receive your reply and interest to work with me, I will furnish you with more details. 

Peter Roberts.
