Hi all,

I recently received the below message from a person on Proz.com who has never worked for me in the past (and probably never will in the future either):

Hi all,

I recently received the below message from a person on Proz.com who has never worked for me in the past (and probably never will in the future either):

Dear Mr Joop Fraikin,
As I have strong intentions to work for you and with you, I
invite you to make an entry concerning your willingness of
working with me again in the future. Your doing so will help
me to build a strong profile, which is important to me in my
service as an independent professional with a strong
professional background (32 years in engineering
translating).
Thank you in advance for your consideration in helping me
to build a strong profile at ProZ.com. Whether or not you
choose to make a WWA entry, I look forward to working with
you in the future. Please, keep me in your active file. Best regards,
(name of sender)

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think this is what the wwa feature is intended for.

Any comments / ideas / suggestions ?

Big fat NO... Jul 20, 2011

If only by analogy, I am quite certain that such a request is against the rules anyway.

Absurd Jul 20, 2011

Completely absurd. No way José!!

Edited to add this: Report this matter to Proz.com so that they can shut down this person's profile immediately!

Definitely No! Jul 21, 2011

I'm a new user and it doesn't really take that much to figure out when things seem fishy. Sadly, lots of scams surround us and you can never be too cautious. Better safe than sorry!

Ha! Jul 21, 2011

Well, if it were as easy as all that, we would all have hundreds of stars next to our name! I would rather earn mine the hard way.
I agree that Proz Support should be advised.
