Hello,

Myself project manager of Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd. company located in delhi India. From last few months we are receiving invoices through emails and post from different resources coutry wide for the work which we had not assigned them.

Someone is cheating resources by using our name and company details, the email I.D they are using is somyatranslation@yahoo.com. I want to request all the resource that do not accept any projects from this kind of fake email accounts. We only use our internal company accounts like sales@somyatrans.com etc. for all the business activities. We never use yahoo, gmail, rediff or any other public accounts for business activities.

Please beware of fake people who are using our name to make their job going.

We welcome suggestions from all of you how we can catch this kind of people.

With Best Regards,

Tina Mittra

Project Manager

Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd.

I wonder if Proz can help... May 29, 2009

Maybe this information should be added to your company's BlueBoard record.

Tina, I suggest you submit a support ticket about it to the Proz staff.

If it's there, anyone contacted by "Somya", upon checking the Blue Board, will be enabled to sort out the real company from the fake one.

Thanks, Tina! May 29, 2009

Hello Tina,

Thank you very much for your message.
Fortunately, I never got any job offer from these people and now I'll keep my eyes open.

I agree with José Henrique: you should notify Proz.com staff about this.

Thanks Natalia.

Tina, I have added a public note to your Blue Board record which directs to this thread for more information.

In general, as Natalia states, if you have received an email or job offer which you feel may be fraudulent, please submit a support request with all of the relevant details. Note that, while staff may not be able to take action in all cases, some steps can usually be taken to help inform other translators of the issue. Thanks.

Best regards,

Jared

Ajoy Singh cheated me, too Jun 4, 2009

I also felt into the pitfall of Ajoy Singh

The problem is that he used the name of a registered outsourcer and I did not guess any danger in entering into contact with the company.


I have learned for ever the lesson.

I have been cheated by this Ajoy Singh Jun 9, 2009

Dear all,

He sent to me and told me from this email address, somyatranslation@yahoo.com that he is Ajoy from Somya Translation Company and they have a big project need to be translated from English to Arabic by Trados about 87626 words.

Then he said that he will pay within 15 days from the invoice for the first time between us in this big project by Moneybookers, WesternUnion or bank transfer.

I did about 32,000 words, then sent them to him. After that i didn't hear from him any more. he didn't pay me neither replied to my e-mails.

Please advice me what to do?

No One has been cheated by Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd. Jun 10, 2009

Hello All,

Please note that no has been cheated by us means Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd., neither Mr. Ajoy Singh has contacted anyone for the translation project. As everytime we had already cleared to all that this is someone else, and for this we had already given the notice on web-sites and even in the forum here, how anyonce can accept the project without any confirmation even if you are receiving the e-mail from yahoo one should think at least why one customer who are since 3 yrs. in the industry, have own domain can use yahoo e-mail ID.

Please also note, Mr. Ajoy Singh is Managing Director of our company i.e. Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd., he never approch any translators by himself as we have a dedicated team for Vendor Management.

This is our request to identify the IP address if you can will great help to us although we had already logged the complain with Indian Police but we are not sure by when we will get this solution.

And in last again I would like to say that no one has been cheated by Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd. its something else and you need be aware of such cases in future too.

Anyonce can help us to identify this man who is using e-mail ID, will be just great...

Best regards,

Tina Mittra
