Dear Charlotte Blank,

We are an international team of business administration
students, studying at FHS St. Gallen University of Applied
Sciences. The team is doing a market research for a Swiss
translation agency, interested in engaging new employees in
Czech Republic and willing to pay a good salary for
high-qualified translators.
Here are the requirements for the job offer:
English as native language and German on level B2 or higher
(according to European Framework to Reference for
Between 20 to 40 years old.
If you are interested in being employed by the Swiss
translation agency on the conditions of telework and you
fulfil the requirements, please, reply to this email.

In a next email you will receive an assessment test, which
is needed to estimate the quality of performance for further
employment. You will have 2 days to complete the test, which
consists of one page of text in German for translation to
English and one page of text in US English for proofreading.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact

Kind Regards
Aneta Budinová

Možná, že to není scam, ale ta IP adresa je někde v USA ( ), nikoliv ve Švýcařsku. Navíc, kdyby paní Budinová opravdu četla můj profil, zjistila by na první pohled, že Angličtina není má mateřština a už tím vůbec nejsem vhodná. Zajímalo by mně také, proč chtejí jenom překladatelé mezi 20 a 40 let...

Co o tom myslíte vy?


Edit: :
" [Email Address Harvester]
The Project Honey Pot system has detected behavior from the IP address consistent with that of a spam harvester."

Těžko říct... May 21, 2013

...ale celé to zní nějak divně. Proč by Vám studenti, kteří pracují na výzkumu trhu, nabízeli pracovní místo ve Švýcarsku? Navíc z americké IP adresy?

Krom toho je věkový požadavek diskriminující.

Suma sumárum, šup s tím do koše.
