Please be aware of this scammer! He even sent me an article to be translated! The offer was a scam but I was a victim. This is a copy of his first message.

Scam after scam Jan 24, 2019

Let's face it. It seems there isn't a week that goes by without a least one scam report in the forums.
Perhaps Proz or someone could present a list of the types of scams out there and instruct people so they can become aware of the main warning signs.

Dear @writeaway,

I do recommend that you take a look at the scam reports page ( http://wiki.proz.com/wiki/index.php/Translator_scam_alert_reports ) and that you subscribe to scam reports ( https://www.proz.com/about/translator-scam-alerts/subscribe ) because that may help you identify possible scams in the future.

This suggestion was sent to me by one of the Proz.com staff members after I received an email like that.

I hope it helps.

Regards,

Sonia Cunha
