Thank goodness for this forum, I was in the middle of the "we're closing the proofreader position" transition to "be our American representative" fiasco. I've "proofread" four text emails so far. The whole processing transactions sounded fishy... PayPal works in Poland, I mean, c'mon. So, now I've done free "work" and won't get paid because it's the front work for a scam. Dratitall. [email protected]
was my contact, supposedly for an auction site in Poland called Neo24. I was to be paid $30-40/day as well.
Here is the first email:
Thank You for your reply.
We have received your application for the work position.
My name is Kharif Tate.
I am a specialist of the Neo24 company and I will be your personal consultant.
First of all I would like you to study the details below and to make a decision about our partnership.
I am ready to answer all your questions if you have any.
Please learn each part of the position carefully:
1. ABOUT OUR COMPANY:
We represent the American agency of a major European company Neo24.
For more information please visit our website: http://www.neo24.pl
For many years we have become the largest online-auction in Europe.
The number of our users has exceeded 15 million. Every day there are more than
1 million transactions made.
Currently we develop the North American market . The US economy is the most powerful
economy worldwide and their banking and payment systems work comfortably and stably .
All these factors provide a basis for profitable cooperation of American and European customers.
There is only one problem that must be resolved - the language barrier.
Every day we are in correspondence with our employees and customers from the United States.
English is not our native language. Furthermore, American English and European English
have a number of differences that can bring some inaccuracy in our communication.
Our correspondence has a business character and it is often associated with finances.
Any inaccuracies may distort the text and eventually bring to the complete misunderstanding
of the meaning worded.
We hope that you are a responsible person who can proofread our business correspondence.

It's very important that you will mark our e-mail address, because it's difficult to communicate
with you if you will not find our letters on time.
Please check emails from us every day and check all folders, because we send you emails every day.
