Hi,

I had a number of agencies contacting me asking for my CV followed by a request for a sample work. I know it is a standard procedure but this feels different. One of them asked me to translate a file 3 times the average job offer on this site. They all have a story of a big project coming soon.

I have a feeling that they are using my credential and work to earn some money and continuing work. My problem is although they are from already suspected parts of the world, they are registered on the site. One of them came back for more before even giving me a feedback on the first one. I translated 3 pages full first time.

Any simillar experience? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Tsehay
