The good thing about the Translation Scams is that they are also very easy to detect with due diligence checks.
back to FAQs Step 1: you open any search engine page (Google, Yahoo, etc) and in the search field type in her name, click Search and see what happen.
So, the fact that you do not see a person on a black list in no way means that this person is "real" or honest.
Nothing short of verification of identity can confirm that someone is real.
It is not uncommon for the Translation Scammers to use Travel Scam tricks as well, inviting the victim to help the lady financially with the arrangements for the personal meeting.If some other details match as well, there is larger chance that your lady is involved somehow after all. Is there anything else in her behavior that you feel uneasy about?Start verifying your ladys information and biographical info, if possible. If nothing else matches your ladys information, if you checked her identity and she really exists, and there are no other troubling signs in your ladys behavior, then I would recommend continuing your correspondence, but being very observant about her behavior, in case it will start becoming more troubling in the future.This type of scam is designed to last many months, since the scammers try to trick the victim into paying the translation services for as long as possible.The scammers employ English-speaking interpreters to impersonate both the lady and the translation company.
