Hi,

This Barry Jones guy (emails: barrytranslator @ hotmail.com and barryjjones64 @ hotmail.com) asked me to complete a translation (US Vital Records - from EN to IT) and once he received it, he disappeared. I later found out that the very day I sent him the email with my invoice, he deleted his profile from the website I found the project on. And few days later I also found out that another translator had my same experience and FOR THE EXACT SAME JOB. So, he asked at least two (or maybe more) translators to translate the exact same thing and then disappeared once received the completed job.

Just to let you all know... If you receive a job offer from this Barry Jones, located in Cornwall (UK), don't reply. If you'd like more details, please contact me privately.

This Barry Jones is very prolific (assuming it is always the same person) in the scamming activity. If you search the Net it goes from the british lottery, art works, bogus art fairs and... translation!
