Re: Trickery and deceptive interviews?

Not a new thing. I was talking to another friend who also does translations about how a company offering freelance translation work had sent me several slides from a presentation to translate as a "test of my skills". The content of the slides struck me as a bit random but I was a student and needed another source of income so I translated and sent it to them. Never heard from them again. By coincidence, my friend had applied for the same job - she had also been sent slides to translate, did it and was then ghosted.

We compared what we'd been sent to translate; it was evidently the same presentation but different slides. How cheapskate do you have to be to pull off a stunt like that?
