| Mr Jonathan strikes again || Oct 6, 2015 |
He seems to have "improved" his opening lines since 2014. Here is what I received today (luckily straight to my spam folder):
Hello, I am Mr Jonathan I got your e mail address from an online forum that you are an excellent translator, I guess you would have worked for them. I will like you to translate an article for me, but first i need to know your language combination because it was not stated. I will be very happy if you can reply my e mail ASAP.
I guess he would be happy indeed. Happy of having his article translated from whatever language into any language I might offer.

| Just got an email from him || Mar 30, 2016 |
As said in my title... I just got an email from him. Same poor English (therefore red flag ) but I decided to reply and see where the scam is: it wasn't a link to wikipedia but a pdf attachment with many "sources" listed at the end of the article.
I quoted him my price, let's see what's his next step. I'll keep you posted, if you want.
