Dear Colleagues,

I just received an email from a Ray Mayer, enquiring about a very large translation project. I was very suspicious, so googled him and found out his domain is being used in a widespread scam to get people to give their PayPal accounts.
If you receive any emails from him, I recommend you ignore it.
Here is the link highlighting the scam.

Best regards,

Amazing! Aug 27, 2010

Thanks for the info, Andrea.

I clicked the link you posted, and I was amazed to find out that the posting dates back to 2007. This means that this so-called Ray Mayer has been around for at least 3 years using the same alias and trying to rip-off people over the Net.
