Hi everyone,

I want to warn people about a scammer that has just contacted me through proz.com, offering me €500 to arrange pick up at Lisbon airport, pay bills and other related things. The scammer, tubemerchant, registered on proz.com today, December 7.

Oh that's fun, I received a message in which he says he's moving to the Netherlands with his wife and he offers 500 euros a week for the same services you mentioned: pickup from the airport, paying of bills etc.

I'll report him too.

Same here... Dec 7, 2017

I also received the same email. I stopped believing when I got to the part of 'Paying of bills.' and '500 euros a week'. Hope Proz.com removes this profile asap. Besides being a scam, they waste people's time...
Thank you all for reporting it here

Another one! Dec 7, 2017

Hello

Just received the same email.
I immediately thought of checking him out on Google and ProZ because it did seem like a scam. Glad I did!
Thanks for the share!

In my case it was Montenegro, but for "airport pickup" he/she didn't indicate which airport in the country it would be.

In this case it was Finland. The whole message, as well as the profile without any identification, screams "scam" from a mile away. It drives me mad that ProZ.com has no "report scammer" button!
