Received this message from a gmail.com account :

Thanks for your reply. Here is the document, its attached.I will like
it delivered in about 3 to 4 weeks. Let me know if you will be able to
finish in time and what it will cost me. Thanks


Translation should be into English... from a bit of a poor Mexican - Spanish translation... alas, the original document (in the original English in which the article was written) can be found on the web in less than 10 seconds...

Thank you for your response , but pls presently i cant make a paypal transfer right now because i'm away for a conference but i can issue you a check that will cover all the amount for the translation so you can have all the money at once,but pls you will have to stick to your words and meet up on the delivery date,if this is ok with you, can you simply get back to me with, the full name you want the check to bear ,the address to send it too and your phone number , i will be hoping to read back from you soon

So no there isn't much room for doubt now...

No, there's no room for doubt. However, one thing is missing: overpayment.
