Dear all,

This is a warning for French into Portuguese translators.
Yesterday, I received an email message from Tama West, which was sent to several translators (undisclosed recipients).
This person needs a translation from French into Portuguese.

There is no postal address, phone number ot company name. Nothing.
So, here's my advice: be careful.

I received two requests from French to Italian and French to German. Well aware right from the start that this was a scam I asked for details. Never got any. Same advice, be careful.

Also targetting Spanish translators Feb 10, 2020

Hi all,
she wrote to me too, but for a French to Spanish translation.
I also think it is a scam.

Her name says it all: Feb 12, 2020

smells like a scam, looks like a scam and reads like a scam.

Thanks for sharing, Carla!
