Hello all,

Please be informed that there is a Scammer using my name, surname, cover letter and an old CV, contacting many persons and companies, using falses e_mails addresses like: antonietta.g.work@hotmail.com, antonietta.gwork1@gmail.com and also freelancer.monitor1@gmail.com, with incorrect mobile phone. The scammer uses always on the object of the e_mails this sentence : "Experience and Skill are my key words!! Contact me also during the week end"
This person is contacting many persons sending them my information and then doesn't reply to the emails. Probably is a person that wants to destroy my imagine like a translator. I just informed police and so on ... and I think during these days I'll know also the name of this person.

BE CAREFUL TO CHECK ALWAYS THE EMAILS TO AVOID SCAMMERS:


I never send CV in word format but in PDF format.


PLEASE IF YOU RECIEVE E_MAILS FROM FALSE E_MAILS BY SCAMMERS WHO ARE PERSONIFING IN ANTONIETTA DI GIANNI PLEASE CONTACT ME TO MY REAL E_MAILS!!!!!

By publishing full information like this, you are in fact releasing even more details in a readily accessible format for other scammers to make use of; it is very easy for people with malicious intent to recover this information and use it in various ways to steal your identity again and again.

One of the best things you might do would be to have a proper ISP and preferably domain name of your own (or why not use you proZ.com hosting service?) -- the fact that you use 'free' providers like gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. makes it easier for scammers, as they too can get access to such e-mail addresses, and only need to make a small change that a customer might not even notice in order to steal your identity. Having an e-mail address to which they cannot so readily have access is a simple first line of defence, at least in the sense of making it easier for customers to check they really ARE in contact with YOU and not someone pretending to be you.

Have you contacted this company? If they are honest, they will want to remove this scammer from their website; and if they are dishonest, you may have helped uncover a much wider scamming organization.

HYW TRanslation Company Sep 13, 2013

Update:

I attempted to contact this company via their website, but all the links I found seem to be dead.

Their profile on T.C. is still active, but I have reported possible abuse.

The more you publish your data on the Internet... Sep 13, 2013

...the more spam and scam will you get.

Sounds like poetry

If serious: Antonietta, please REMOVE all your contact data from these posts. By publishing them you expose yourself to the army of spammers and scammers.

Remove your addresses from everywhere on the net Sep 13, 2013

Antonietta, if your customers would wish/need to contact you, let them contact through your profile email first. Remove all visible contact data (though it is a bit late already) from everywhere you have posted them.
