Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope this email meets you in good health. I feel quite safe dealing
with you in this mutual beneficial transaction. Though, this medium of
Internet communication 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 Dr.Thomas Cook 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. Full Contact Address {P.O BOXES ARE NOT ALLOWED}:
3. Occupation:
4. Phone Number:

I will never ask you for your, bank account number, credit card, social security
number etc.

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
checques 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 checques 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: [email protected] I await your reply
