It has been brought twice to my attention this week that someone has been using my CV in an attempt to get work and I am having second thought about leaving too much info on my profile.

Please note, these are the e-mail addresses the scammer is using:

anni.davies@hotmail.com

anniy.davee1@gmail.com



Thank you

Terminating emails Nov 4, 2014

Hi,

do you know if it is possible to terminate the email a scammer has been using? If yes, how would I proceed?
That would be nice to get rid of them.

Thank you


That's why I go for "(CV/Resume) available upon request"
It saves you hustle and keeps your privacy. However, sometimes clientts would like to check on CV on proz.com before contacting a translator. But may be your updated activities and availability can encourage the client to contact you.
