I am writing to report a concerning incident that I have recently encountered, involving non-payment for services and an apparent scam aimed at defrauding translators. Below, I will detail the interaction with the involved party, in hopes that appropriate action can be taken to prevent further harm to individuals in the translation community.

**Incident Overview:**

I was approached via email by an entity claiming to represent the "GATE 10 BRITISH TRANSLATION LIBRARY" (Email: They solicited my services for the translation of 100 images into Kurdish Sorani, totaling more than 40,000 words, with an offered compensation of 3500 USD. The initial contact raised suspicion due to the use of a personal email address without any affiliated organizational website.

**Proceedings & Scam Mechanism:**

Upon completing the requested translation, I was directed to create an account on for payment processing. After purportedly transferring 3500 USD to my account on this platform, I encountered an unusual requirement to obtain a SAC code to facilitate the transfer of funds to my bank account or PayPal. When I inquired about acquiring this SAC code, I was informed that a payment of 150 USD was necessary to receive the code. My suggestion to deduct this fee from my credited 3500 USD was refused, and a preference for payment in cryptocurrency was indicated.

**Concerns and Request for Action:**

This experience signals a sophisticated scam, not merely evading payment for legitimately provided services but actively attempting to extract money from the victim. The requirements for additional payments under dubious pretenses, particularly the insistence on cryptocurrency, highlight the fraudulent nature of this scheme.

Therefore, I am formally requesting your support to investigate this matter. Any guidance on reporting this incident to law enforcement or relevant regulatory bodies would also be greatly appreciated. My primary aim is to alert the translator community about this scam and to take necessary steps to prevent further victims of such deceptive practices.

I am willing to provide any additional information or documentation required to support this report. Your prompt attention and assistance in addressing this egregious exploitation would be highly valued.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
