Good morning to everyboby,

It is the second time in a fortnight I have received e-mails from Mr.X pretending they want to assign jobs in my mother tongue. I definitely got suspicious and checked their Proz.com profile.
http://www.proz.com/?sp=profile&sp_mode=contact&eid_s=1494505 There is only a name, no address no telephone number, no language pairs, just no information. This person is a paying member.
He is a member just to be able to send us e-mails to recruit people for Western Union.
I believe that Proz.com staff should see to this problem because it is not fair to the rest of us.
Beware !

Best Regards

Scam Nov 21, 2011

One option might be to submit a support request to a ProZ.com monitor explaining the issue. To my knowledge, and if this Western Union practice is proven, they can bar this "outsourcer" from using ProZ.com.
