Well, I used to think that I've seen all sorts of SPAM and con tricks but here's something new... all of a sudden I seem to have been transformed into a Visa agent or god knows what, though I'm sure that my profile in Proz and my website say clearly enough that I'm a Translator...
Here's the e-mail that I received:

By this way I would like to communicate you that I ´m
doing the necessary steps, to get a short scholarship in
APTECH Global Learning Solutions from Bombay, Mumbai,
India, named “Certificate in Graphic Designing and
Communication”; If you think a personal meeting is
necessary, I´m at your orders in any moment to make it.
I give out with the best wishes waiting for your answer,
and if I have the honor to obtain the grant, I´m ready to
continue with the last visa step.

In accordance with the proz rules I've removed the IP address and names... but I'd really like proz not to allow at least this IP address to contact me. I'm putting in a support request.
Thanks and Regards,
