Dear sir/Madam, How are you today? I believe God and pray that my message meets you in good health. My names are Patrick Moore, I work as an accountant with one of the biggest export company from West Africa. Recently, our company is having problem receiving payments from our new customers in the USA and some other countries. Some of these potential customers are not willing to make payment outside their countries due to tax and other internal problems. We do not want to be loosing this potential customers, so therefore, we are looking for agents worldwide for urgent employment to work as our fiduciary agent in the country where we want to export. Pls be informed that this employment does not in any way affect your current job, is just a part time job which does not take any of your time. For more details and payment benefits, please contact me if you are interested in the job. Thank you, Yours faithfully, Patrick Moore E-mail: pmoore221uk@gmail.com CC&E International pmoore221uk@gmail.com
