This post may affect only US translators that work with Link-translations.

I received this weird message from a PM I work with:

"Please sign the documents i uploaded for you using Google drive Click Here to view and let me know what you think. It's Important"

If you click, they ask for your e-mail and password and then ask for permission to take over your e-mail account.

I got permission from the legit PM to post and warn other translators.

Stay safe,

Me too Nov 7, 2013

I recd a similar mail and was surprised about the content of home photos
But the telltale was that the email id of the PM from whom I normally get the jobs- was showing as instead of the usual email id. That should have prevented me had I seen it earlier. Once I realized this, I changed my passwd immediately.
