Hi all,

I was contacted to translate a text, consisting of aprox. 1000 words from Dutch into Spanish, supposedly by a well-established agency in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In reality the email is from somebody based in Egypt who uses the name of this agency.

I know other translators have been contacted to translate the text into 11 other languages which are mentioned in the text. If you´ve seen the text you know what I´m talking about.

Please contact me as soon as possible in order to inform the end-client.
