Google their emails FIRST. Remember: we expose new scammers (names and emails) on Twitter with the heading NEW #CVSCAM. Because tweets are fed straight into Google as they are posted, scammers' data will show up very quickly in search results.
Look up also the scammers' emails in this page of our website.
Google also the names used by scammers. These can be fantasy names or just stolen from genuine translators. For best results, search like this:
"Mary Read" translator scammers
Google also the fake addresses and phone numbers shown on their fake CVs
You may also use the search engine of our website.
We DO NOT claim to list in our Directory ALL fake IDs used by translator scammers. But, the information we provide in our website can be used as a reliable starting point for everyone to identify the patterns used by the scammers in their impersonation of real translators. In about 98% of the cases, spotting a fake translator's CV takes less than 30 seconds, and the remaining 2% take no more than 1 minute!
FROM THE CV SCAM
WHAT TO DO: Be professional online. On Translation Portals, use your own name and consider using an updated photo. For your professional life, it's also a good idea to use an email address provided by your own mail server or ISP.
WHAT NOT TO DO: If your real name is "John Doe" and you call yourself "Amenhotep" on Translation portals and if your real name and your CV (not even a basic version) are nowhere to be found, don't be surprised if your prospective clients mistake you for a scammer circulating a fake CV. On the other hand, if your professional data (name, email, VAT number, CV, etc.) can easily be cross-checked online, any scamming of your CV or impersonation of your data will be easily busted.
BE SMART: Of course, you may be a privacy freak all you want, but if you push it too far, that may end up working against you. Do you think everybody is going yo believe that your great CV from "John Doe" really comes from that "Amenhotep" guy they saw online? How can you prove it?

Did you know that 10 "translators" live in Bad Oyenhausen, Germany, all in different streets and postal codes. And that other 14 "translators" include a genuine Belgium address on their fake CVs (a verbatim copy of the victim's CV scammed under different false names). And that "Jennifer Allen" and "Jolene Marcus" share the same postal code, 13530 Trets France, and the same exact (fake, of course) phone number: 33 (0)22.214.171.124.22. That, and much more in:
