WHY IS TWITTER
PROTECTING SCAMMERS?

On Jul 24, 2019, 11:47 AM, we have been notified by Twitter that our Twitter account had been suspended for the following reasons:

Your account, tsdirectory has been suspended for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: Violating our rules against posting private information.

Click to see the message we have received from Twitter.

We have appealed this suspension, by explaining the purpose of our Directory and of our tweets: to expose FALSE translators circulating CVs STOLEN from genuine translators. In our tweet, we have included the FAKE address and phone numbers, a trick used by scammers to make their FAKE CVs somewhat more credible.

For the record: JOHN BOURRY (a fantasy name created by scammers) uses the emails john.bourry.french@gmail.com & john.bourry.pro@gmail.com to circulate a CV stolen from Emmanuel Munos (a translator based in France) and then modified to show a false name (John Bourry) and his supposedly street address and phone numbers:

3751 Harvest Drive - Redwood City, CA 930721 / (650) 261-1345 / (650) 281-3722
Note the "wrong" zip code (with 6 digits). There is no "3751" on this street...
Phone (650) 261-1345 apparently belongs to a car rental company (NO ANSWER)
Phone (650) 281-3722 is a mobile line registered in San Mateo, CA (DISCONNECTED).

SEARCHING FOR SCAMMERS

Google their emails FIRST.

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

Look up also the Fake Addresses and Phone Numbers used by scammers  ➤  

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!

PROTECT YOURSELF
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?

GASKET-HOLE
SCAMMERS' ADDRESSES

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)4.42.54.14.22. That, and much more in:

Part 1: Scammers associated with CV scams, impersonation and fake companies
Part 2: Scammers with no address on their fake CVs, only fake phone numbers
Part 3: Scammers targeting translators (overpayment & other financial scams)

SCAMMERS WITH PROFILES
IN TRANSLATORS PORTALS

Yes, shamefully and with almost total impunity, scammers do keep profiles in Translators Portals. We regularly warn the major translator portals – ProZ, TranslatorsCafé and TranslationDirectory – about any such profiles found in their directories. Response to delete false profiles from TranslatorsCafé is always swift and outstanding, TranslationDirectory is still very slow to acknowledge our warnings and delete the scammers' profiles, and we wish ProZ could be more responsive to deny scammers access to their portal

They are listed on our OFFLINE TRANSLATOR SCAMMERS DIRECTORY (PDF)  ➤  

YES, PLEASE,
LINK AWAY, BUT...

Yes, you may link to our website. For better security of our data, link ONLY to our homepage (this page): www.translator-scammers.com

Instead, mention the file by name and point the interested parties to our Directory, but ONLY to the URL of our homepage: www.translator-scammers. com
