Fraudulent job offer from China

I don’t speak Chinese.  I barely speak Spanish.   But a spammer from China decided to offer me a job.   I’m not the Grammar Police, but still.

I see this and think the job duties include translating spam like this into English so the scam is harder to spot.  Nice try.

Have you received this one?
