I noticed that some companies which are posting translation jobs today are actually banned from Proz.com if you look at the Blue Board. They just altered their name slightly and made a new profile for themselves but in reality they are on the list of banned outsourcers.

What can we, as members, do about these things other than the obvious thing of not submitting applications to their projects?

Please report the jobs/profiles to ProZ staff Mar 7, 2014

If you have proof (i.e., same address, same contact name, etc.), please inform ProZ staff right away. (And if you have a strong suspicion, ask them to check...)

Job has closed Mar 7, 2014

Thanks Yolanda,

It's the exact same company name. Unfortunately, the job just closed recently. What do you do in these cases?

Sarah

Please contact staff anyhow Mar 7, 2014

If there is a profile that was created to get around a ProZ ban, staff should know about it, so they can block the profile.
