Hi Guys,

I got scammed by someone claiming to work for Welocalize in the name of Lauren Southers.

Please be aware!

Police is investigating. Their real name is abctranslating, I just found out. I guess I let the police solve the problem. They have bad English in their emails. They might try to use another agency name next time.

Sorry for the late reply Jan 19

They sent me an email asking if I was free to translate something for them.
