I received an e-mail this morning. It contains the same text as they usually do. The fraud used the legitimate name from a legitimate agency which shows an excellent rating on the Blue Board.

The e-mail shows an address in another country; the legitimate agency is in the USA.

I am posting this to warn other translators.

Deadline is today and we will pay $0.04 per word for this.

Please confirm the receipt and advice if you are interested and available for this.
