I just received the following request for a quote:

«Bonjour
je m'appelle Pierre Quentin, je suis professeur. Actuellement en voyage en Allemagne, j'aurai besoin de vous pour la traduction simple d'un document d'environ 12000 mots du français en espagnol. Si cela relève de vos compétences, je serai ravis de vous envoyer le document pour un devis.
Cordialement»

Why is it a scam? Because the guy states that he is travelling abroad and because of the great amount of words.

Scammers travel a lot! Aug 2

Are low-cost airlines to blame or do they fly first-class?
