I received the following through my proz.com email account. It seems to be a scam since I don't have now or never have had such an account. It is obvious that by entering the link provided they will ask for sensitive information.

In order to activate your account, you just have to log in using your registration data. Please click on the link below: [link removed]. By clicking on the link you will proceed directly to the registration data entry page. If the link does not work, copy the whole URL into the address box of your browser and then press "Enter".If you do not activate your account by 1 December 2008, it will be blocked, after which it will be deleted in six months. However, you will be able to unblock your account during this period by simply logging in, but it will only be possible to add funds after contacting Google AdWords support service.
