'Report spam' link at bottom of message Feb 4, 2014

Assuming you received this message via your ProZ.com profile, you should find right at the bottom of the message a link you can click on to 'report spam' automatically.

If you wish to be able to make additional comments, then it is probably better to submit a Support Request, into which you can copy and paste the ENTIRE e-mail (including the full headers, which you may need to adjust your e-mail server in order to be able to see).

Scammers - It's time to do something about it! Feb 8, 2014

There are millions of translators in the world who, just like me, are trying to make an honest living. Isn't there anything we can do to stop these scammers who steal our CVs, our time, our money?!

I was recently victim of a scammer - (ok, "my fault", no need to rub it in!). However, having contacted the company the translation was for, asking for help identifying the scammer (at least they could have suspended payment to them, report their paypal address should that be the case) they just said the job had been done and they would have to pay the agency!!!

Shouldn't we also be protecting ourselves from these companies, who are protecting these scammers?!
