Dear All

It appears that the scammer Dillon Zheng has reared his head again using both company names above and various email addresses such as david.salter.trans@gmail.com (frankly, I cannot believe that any translator would fall for that but they still do) and wr.linguistics.trans@gmail.com.

We repeat our previous warnings that, unless you are expecting an email from Google, offers of work from a legitimate translation agency or business will use their domain name not gmail.

Please could you warn your peers - particularly new translators who may have less experience with such things.

Part of my business comes from individuals not businesses and they use gmail.
