(11) Translator scam alert center: working together against scammers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Member Teresa Gutiérrez -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1548619 -- wrote: "Thank you very much for these extremely interesting e-mails with scam cases. They are really useful and you get a clear picture of how the whole thing happens."

The translator scam alert reports stored at http://wiki.proz.com/wiki/index.php/Translator_scam_alert_reports are a resource in identifying and avoiding the many scammers targeting translators and interpreters, by learning their style, tricks and the contact information they are currently using.

If you feel you have been contacted by a scammer, please be sure to report this to site staff via the support system, to help get the word out to colleagues who may also be contacted.

ProZ.com members can subscribe to scam alerts (immediate or as weekly digest) from the scam alert center.
