Hi all,

I received a message this morning in French, via Proz, asking me if I'd want to "make some money while translating" and including a link to click on ( I obviously didn't click on that link, it seems like some kind of phishing attempt.
The sender is a new Proz member called Kev Wang, registered just a couple of days ago, with no Proz info whatsoever on his profile.

I'm just dropping the hint, I don't think this is legit!icon_smile.gif
