I received an email from an agency to send my updated resume and so on as they were expecting to get large volumes for Marketing EN> FR-Ca.
However when I looked up on blue board, that agency has been banned from posting on Proz.com since 2013. But how come they still have 5 stars rating showing after that for LWA?

Am I wrong to thinking this is suspicious? And if that cagency has been banned why can't I mention its name?

Agency is based in UK and I was contacted on a Sunday. Just seems a bit to good to be true.

Thanks for your input.

Tatiana

This is rather simple Feb 12, 2017

Hi Tatiana,

This is rather simple: the agency has been banned some time ago due to multiple cases of non-payment, and even if they continue getting multiple "5" from translators, they will be still banned in case they have non-closed non-payments. In this case they are not allowed to post jobs through ProZ.com, and if they do this, they violate the job posting rules.

You should report this to the site staff.

thanks Feb 12, 2017

I am just surprised that outside of proz.com, there's not one single review on them other than client reviews. not a single freelancer review.

Either way Feb 13, 2017

This is a nonpayment issue, not a scam.
