His email address is hopebrandon04@gmail.com
He will ask you to start translating a long article for about $700.00, then say he'll send a check right away - Then of course, the check happens to be around $4,000.00, a mistake from his accountant, and you're supposed to make a deposit for the difference on someone's bank account....

This trick is very basic.
All Prozians should never be hit by such cheating [that evolved since 1990s].

Never give your bank details Jun 14

You should never give your bank details to a new client until you have actually done the job and delivered it.
