" Hello,
I'm pleased to know you are interested in handling this project. However, I will require your service to translate the attached English document. In the mean time, could you also confirm your charges per page, per source word or for the entire translation? The deadline for this Project is 1 month starting from 10/02/2020. Finally, what would be your preferred mode of payment? Though I'm proposing a certified bank draft, a cashier check or bank certified check. Please do not hesitate to confirm if this is okay with you? I look forward to reading from you soon.
Best Regards,"

I asked how she got to know me and she didn't answer me.

I search the first sentence of the material she gave to me and want me to translate "What do organizations use conflict management for? "
I am glad that the google search result lead me to here.

Same from Maria Brown Feb 10

I've just receive an email from Maria Brown and was in the middle of the discussion when I decided to google her and the research. Her English made me quite suspicious. I am glad for your comments here. Sad though, I really liked the content. Peace!
