I just received a translation test from an agency that I did not remember applying to. They had a very generic name, similar to but not exactly like a dozen other agencies on the Blue Board, with varying reputations. After looking through my sent mail, I determined I never contacted these guys for anything. The test had some very odd questions and rather poor grammar, so I decided it wasn't worth pursuing. Anyone else ever get something like this?

I received a very similar email about 2 days ago.
I decided the best way to go with it is ignoring it.

Just keep track of the agencies you actually send your quotes to and usually deal with.

Cheers!

Carla.
