It has been brought to our attention that an individual with the initials L. B. operating out of Sarasota, Florida, has been using our company name (or a very similar variation) and pretending to be us, in order to solicit business and scam vendors by not paying them when work has been completed.

Please note the following:

* All our officers and employees' e-mail addresses feature our company name (perfecttranslations.com)
* Our telephone is 305-935-3244. Our area code is "305", not "941" or other.
* We have been in business for 20+ years and pay all our vendors religiously. Tens of translators and interpreters can attest to that.

Should you be approached by this crook, we ask you to please gather as much of his contact information and let us know immediately. Our website is: www.PerfectTranslations.com. If you have any doubts whatsoever about the legitimacy of a job offer that has been extended to you in our behalf, we urge you to call us, as we will not tolerate any character defamation or libel.

You're welcome. We are receiving calls from translators who are being approached by him. The translation community as a whole should watch out for scammers like him and others, capitalizing on translators' need to earn an honest living.

MORE SCAM ATTEMPTS BY LESLIE BOSCH Apr 29, 2013

We received this email today. Please remember: if in doubt, contact Perfect Translations directly through our contact form or telephone information at the bottom of our pages.


"Today I was approached by a company in Miami, Florida for a Translation project. He told me he was the project manager for Perfect Translations, and if I could complete a project for him. The number he gave me did not match up with the Telephone number on Perfect Translations website as well as the Area Code. He told me that he does everything through Skype , and not to call the office, because he works from home as well in the Miami office for Perfect Translations. After a few questions I started to put things together, and I did not believe this person Leslie Bosch. "
