The Translator scam alert center is an area designed to provide organized, concise information regarding false job offers and other scams which may be aimed at or are affecting language professionals. Information provided in the center is based in part on reports made by ProZ.com members through the online support system and in the Scams forum. Scams are categorized by type, and the outstanding characteristics of each are outlined, to make detection easier. General information on detecting and reacting to a potential scam is also included. ProZ.com members have the option of subscribing by email to the Scam alert center, to receive useful news and alerts of new scams as they are detected.

Make sure you are up to date on these potential threats, and help others protect themselves by spreading the word to colleagues.
