Suspicious translation job offers Jan 2

In the last few weeks, I've been receiving some job offers that appear suspicious through contacts using my email as posted in Proz. Example:

Ruth via ProZ.com

I usually ask about payment practices and usually get told that payment is via cashier check. There is only a first name and no address. I have rejected all offers.

Nigerian scam Jan 2

Hi Julio,

This "Ruth" is a Nigerian scammer (the real IP is 105.112.31.3) who is quite busy with sending these emails. He changes IPs promptly so it is hard to block him completely.

Never answer any such messages!

Natalia
