We need medical testers for a new wonder drug.
All you do is drink some secret syrup and we watch what happens.

You need money but you’re not sure about this job. Write a response to the advertisement to find out more. Your email should be 100 – 120 words. Include the following points:
Find out the details of the job (where, when, how, etc.)

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in connection with the advertisement which I found on the internet. I would like to ask you some questions about the job you offer.
It is not clear to me how often I will have to take this secret syrup and for how long. Will there be any doctors to consult? I am interested to know when you plan to start your testing.
I would like to ask for further information about this drug. Does it have any side effects? What illness does this drug cure? I would be grateful to know more details about this medicine.
Briefly about me. I am a healthy and strong seventeen-year old student. I must confess that I am a risky person. I’ve never had any serious illnesses except of chicken pox. I strongly need to earn some money.
I would like to get no less than $4,000 for the testing of the medicine.
I am looking forward to your answer.
