I just got a translation request from Sunshine, email address: doyen06@yahoo.com. Firefox flagged this as spam and sure enough, when I googled it, I found warnings on ProZ from back in 2013. Just wanted to warn others. It was signed David Miller.

Thank you for the warning! Jul 6, 2016

It always helps when people in the community look after one another.
