Under the message header "Realiable needed" [sic], I received the following e-mail yesterday:

Hello, good day to you am Bearnard i'am currently working on
a project and i have a document i will like you to work on
for me i want it translated into English the source language
is Spanish let me know if you are available so I can forward
the document

I replied requesting the document and was sent a two-page questionnaire, in Spanish, for those suffering from asthma.

I quoted (the absurdly high price of) US$200.00 for the job, and mentioned three times that I would accept payment only via MoneyGram, and prior to doing any work on the job.

I doubt I will hear from this person again.
