Warning of fraudulent job offer
I was contacted for a translation job for five days, the offer looked fishy from a lawyer's perspective, I am a lawyer.
I made a quote and got the go-ahead with a "sweet" offer. I would get a cheque for double the amount of my fee and then would have to pay out part of the money to a third party - all docs can be provided.
I had a similar experience in my job as a lawyer and lost quite a bit of money that way.
Although I did not pay out any money to anybody cashing the forged check cost be 600 Euros.
I believe a warning should be put out as most likely other unsuspecting translators may have been approached the same way, not having the experienced of a "duped" lawyer.
I will assist in the precise wording of the warning.
