sapere di fregatura

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression sapere di fregatura, which means to sound dodgy or to sound fishy.

See the expression used below:

Oggi ho ricevuto una risposta dal mio curriculum. Purtroppo “l’offerta” di lavoro sa di fregatura: non sembra un’offerta reale e penso che vogliano ingannarmi.

Today, I received a response from my resume. Unfortunately, the “job offer” sounds fishy: it doesn’t seem like a real offer, and I think they might want to scam me.
