Dear members,

A new feature has been released in ProZ.com: the Translator scam alert center is an area that will be used to provide organized, concise information regarding false job offers and other scams which may be aimed at or are affecting language professionals.

Information provided in the center is based in part on reports made by ProZ.com members through the online support system and in the Scams forum. Scams are categorized by type and the outstanding characteristics of each are outlined, to make detection easier. General information on detecting and reacting to a potential scam is also included.

ProZ.com members have the option of subscribing by email to the Scam alert center, to receive useful news and alerts of new scams as soon as they are detected.

Please visit this thread for the full announcement and to discuss and provide feedback on this new feature.

Regards,
Enrique

Update on the translator alarm center Feb 24, 2012

Dear members,

The new translator scam alert center has been associated with a new option "Scam alert center" in the "Knowledgebase" area of menu option "Education" in the top drop-down menu. The option "Jobs and directories" was considered first, but in fact the fight against scams in an issue of education for the community.





The first alerts are been sent out and a new page has been designated in the wiki for the Translator scam alert reports. Remember that ProZ.com members can subscribe to receive these alerts via email.

Also, a link has been added to the scam alert center to provide users with a quick channel to report a scam to site staff for investigation/action. These requests will be answered and will also be used to generate alerts to the community.





By sharing critical information the community will help colleagues improve their defenses against these criminal activities.

Regards,
Enrique
