It happened to me Nov 1

I just received an email from this guy, English to Spanish.

It caught my attention because he was not part of any of the agencies I signed with or my clients.

same on 1st November 2019 Nov 1

Thanks a lot,
please be aware that the IP address is the same as other similar scams: IP 209.85.220.41 - California. They create domains with a letter missing or other ommissions, this time it is: wawasandsetinynow.com. When asked about their public profile, they indicate the Proz profile.

This time it is a Trados package with a translation for Caterpillar, from English to French.
