My name is Benjamin Dickson and I am an artist. I live in England, with my two kids, one dog and the love of my life. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child when I was in Canada where I took interest in arts that gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils.
I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer. I have been selling my art for the last 4 to 5 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries, museums and to private collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans/Canadians; they are always offering to pay with a US/CA CHEQUE. I am looking for a representative in the States and in canada who will be working for me as a part time worker and I am willing to pay for every transaction,which wouldn't affect your present state of work, someone who would help me receive payments from my customers in the states. I mean someone that is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to the states and getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting up a branch in the state, but for now I need a representative in the United States who will be handling the payment aspect
What you need to do is Receive this payments from Our Customer in the States get it Cashed in your Bank then Deduct your percentage which is 20% as the Weekly pay as agreed and Forward the Balance to the Company down here through our account to apply for this position,fill out the application form below and it will be forwarded to our Customer in the United States and He/She will Issue payments in form of CHEQUE then Send it to you Via mail Courier receive it,then take it to your bank get it cash deduct your percentage and the remaining will be sent to the company as instructed. But the problem I have is trust.
But I have my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money; I mean the FBI branch in Washington gets involved. It wouldn't cost u any amount,you are to receive payments which will be sent to you by FedEx or UPS from my business partners,which would come in form of a CHEQUE then you are to cash it and send the cash to me. If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible.
To facilitate the conclusion of this transaction if accepted, do send me by mail promptly with the following:
1. FULL NAME & PRESENT OCCUPATION
3.CITY & STATE
4. ZIP CODE & COUNTRY
5. PHONE NUMBER
6.GENDER &MARITAL STATUS
Thanks in this regards and looking forward to a fruitful relationship.
