children, we decided to run a humanitarian organization of saving the lives of the homeless and abandon children in order to contribute our quarter towards giving these

Children lives a meaning just as our God demanded of us to care for the homeless.

We presently have our orphanage homes in India, Somalia and Cotonou, Republic of Benin and we hope to get to other countries in time to come. we run this organization with

the help of some individuals and companies who values the lives of these children and had made up their minds to send funds for their up keeps.
Most of our funding is from American friends whom we have solicited for their help and we are overwhelmed by their eagerness to send funds to us,please permit me to tell

you this, you too can be our donor if interested.

However we are finding it difficult receiving these funds as the bunch of the payments are in US based money orders and Cheques which we find difficult to cash here in UK.

To enable us receive all the donations, I wish to employ you on contract basis to be our payment representative back in the states,
this way you will receive the Money Orders/Cheques from our Donors, cash them easily, deduct 10% of the total amount in every payment as your commission and then send the

rest back to me via Western Union wire transfer.

JOB DESCRIPTION?

1. Receive Cheques / Money Orders payment from our donnors.
2. Cash Payments at your Bank
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.
4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the Offices you will be contacted to send payment to (Payment is to be forwarded either by Money Gram or

Western Union Money Transfer).

HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN?

10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via cheques or money orders on our behalf. You will cash the money and keep $700 (10% from $7000) for yourself!
