Thank you for your interest in this position, offered to you by Ferrasano Ferrosan (located in Norway).
You have the chance to start making up to 700+ GBP a week, guaranteed. There is no start up fee. Position is very easy and very convenient to handle.

This is a new generation job position called Fund Operator, practiced by a number of international companies including ourselves.

Job Description:

Due to a taxation loophole between UK and Norway, your role will be a payment handler for our company. You will not have to deal with any products,
all communication is done via internet, you will not have to receive any contract, nothing like that, this is a part time position, everything is
simplified to the fullest and ready to use for you.

You get paid 10% of each transaction you receive and handle. Because you are an individual, we only have to pay 2% tax for every sale that we make through you
(as the payment handler, in other words sub distributor), rather than having to pay a higher rate as a company.

Thus it is more beneficial for us to handle our business this way with your help, through you.

Here is an example of what is involved. (You will receive instructions at every stage, from steps 1-5).


1. You receive $2800 GBP from us into your nominated bank account.

2. You go to the bank and withdraw 90%, and leave 10% for yourself.

3. You go to Western Union and send 90% of the amount to one of our agents. Note that Western Union fee comes out of 90%! You

don't spend your 10% to pay for any fees.

4. You send us an email with a report of the transaction.

5. As soon as we receive the report, you are given your next transaction the very next day!

Outcome: You earned 10% from $2800 GBP, which is $280 GBP, and that was just one transaction. Not bad at all, right?


1. Do I pay any tax?

This is not your income and the bank is aware of this, because we pay a fee to every Bank institution and it covers taxes for these transfers. And

it is one of the huge advantages of this position. All taxes for these transfers will be automatically dismissed for you.

2. Is there a contract I need to sign?

No, for your convenience this is a part-time position, and all you have to do is give us two days' notice if you wish to cease employment with us.

3. How many transactions a day can I make, and how often?

One transaction a day, five times a week, Monday- Friday. It could be four times a week, depending on your bank schedule. If your bank is closed on

Fridays, then you loose one day, one less transaction a week basically.

4. What products do you sell and what is the average amount I will work with?

We are big on electronics and computer sales, heating and air conditioning supplies, but we also can help any other company make a sale, so it can

involve auto parts, housing equipment, beauty supplies (such as tanning beds), and other quantities in big products.

5. How long will I be able to work for you?

You can depend on this opportunity until at least 7 June, 2010. We will have other opportunities available by that time, so you will be able to

continue on working with us.

6. Is this legal?

This activity is 100%, absolutely legal by any means - and all the laws. If it wasn't - we simply wouldn't offer this great opportunity.

7. Is this difficult?

The work is not complicated at all. Anyone can try it out, and help is always available from one of our representatives.

If you wish to work for us, and join our team, simply reply back with the following information, and one of our representatives will be in touch with

you shortly.
