I worked translating several documents for a so called "Global Speech" agency with some doubtful information as far as address and website goes, yet I decided to go ahead and give them a chance. After a month when I requested payment for the work done, the contact/project manager from “Global Speech” told me the client had rejected my work considering it as of low quality.

After insisting on getting feedback from the translation or asking why I had not received any comments soon after I had turned in the documents, the manager of this so called agency simply send me the name and email of the person she called “the client” telling me “you should ask the client directly and try to get your money… they won’t pay you anyway”.
Trying to get to the bottom of this, I email “the client” who turned out to be a respectable agency whose manager I contacted very professionally explained to me the scam I had gotten involved with stolen CVs and handling down of jobs offers from one person to another using fake identities.
They verified that it was me who had actually translated the documents and not a machine or anything like it and gladly established a work relationship with me as well as agreeing to pay for the work done.
Beware of CV scams and fishy agencies …will save you lots of troubles.

more retarded than we hoped for May 8, 2014

You've been really lucky to bump into this retard, now you have one more client and a really honest one!
But really, how can those scammers make any profit, if they're such idiots...??? Not that I wished them any profit but just curious....
Anyway, thanks for warning and you should contact these people, if you already haven't:

About "Global Speech" and the impersonation of "Azul Benito"... May 8, 2014

"Global Speech" is just another façade/spin-off used by LanguageMet to steal CVs and impersonate translators.

Global Speech, a scam Nov 19, 2015

Hello,

The same happened to me and they still keep asking me for translations.

I did a translation few months ago and when I delivered the document, they told me everything was perfect, but never paid me.
