My name is James Coker,I work for EDGAR SMITHS VENTURES LTD UK as a consultant, I also majored in business management.

The company produces various clothing materials,batiks,assorted fabrics and traditional costume which we have clients we supply weekly in the states.I am at our company in UK,though we have just completed a base in Africa and i might be visiting and we have made such a large client base in the US but I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to transacting with Americans,they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIERS CHECKS, which is difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom.

We need a representative in the states who will be working for us as a part-time worker and who will be paid 5% for every transaction carried out,which wouldnt affect your present state of work,someone who would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states and get them processed at US banks.

I mean someone that is responsible,trust worthy,honest and reliable,cause the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive,i am working on extending a branch in the states,so for now we need a representative in the united states who will be handling the payment aspect.

These payments are usually in money orders and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. It wouldnt cost you any amount,you are to receive payments which will be sent to you by Courier from my business patners.

Kindly get back to us as soon as possible if you are interested in this job offer at the email address below; and i will brief you further with what this job will entail.

Well, the URL of this spammer does not exist.

The main point is unoriginal, it so reminds of STRYKER GINA RAYE of GINA FABRICS AND TEXTILES INDUSTRIAL LTD - except the previous one was to scam the UK residents, the latter to scam the Americans. Well - maybe this Gina person didn't get anyone from UK scammed, and had to try to fish on the other side of the pond?

Nevertheless, if there WAS any company trying to get work, I don't think the British officials, money laundering officials, tax officials etc would really like it. Also, British banks are relatively cheap. Would it REALLY make ANY SENSE for a business to find these 'honourable businessmen' in US that they would find only in the spambots of the internet, to contact them for this offer? I honestly think a British bank is a far better alternative with the less than 2 pounds a cheque they would charge for a SAFE transaction.

Originality: * of *****
Content repeated of all similar kind of business 'proposals'. Nothing new.
