I would like to know if there are others victims like myself. It was an Sp>En job. \"para un proyecto del sector de farmacia\" it said. I responded to this job posting and was sent a 900-word medical translation test. I translated it overnight because I had been told that the test had to be sent back in the morning. After receiving the test, guess what, he wanted me to translate yuet another two-page test!!!

The purpose of this message is to warn others and, if there are more victims, to take collective action.
