I received a request for translation through Proz, from a VoIP number in Alabama, person has a hotmail account. He is not registered on this site. He asked for a translation of two documents from Spanish to English.
Clue 1. He asked for my bank routing information and/or address to send a check, saying he would pay 50% up front.
Clue 2. He signed and returned an estimate after midnight then was impatient for a response around 7AM.
Clue 3. When I replied that I only use PayPal and sent him an invoice and asked for confirmation of his address I heard nothing back. I followed up and nothing.
Clue 4. The documents requested are actually fairly well-known articles in English:

- The income inequality of France in historical perspective, published by Cambridge Press and others.
- Education and Economic Growth: From the 19th to the 21st Century, published by Cisco and others.

Be on the alert for this request, friends.
