NOTE 00 WE DO NOT DEAL WITH PAYMENT, NON-PAYMENT AND LATE PAYMENT ISSUES OR WITH ADVANCE PAYMENT, OVERPAYMENT AND FINANCIAL SCAMS. HOWEVER, GIVEN THE DEGREE OF SOPHISTICATION OF THIS SCAM, AND BECAUSE REPUTED ORGANIZATIONS HAVE FALLEN FOR IT, WE DECIDED TO INCLUDE IT HERE.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More info: Read our FAQ
Yes, banks are some of the favorite "tools" used by scammers.
And also Western Union.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A "Groupe Attijariwafa Bank" is publicizing a Recruitment Notice titled "Recrute traducteurs professionnels freelance : du français vers l’anglais" (other language combinations also used) or "recherche traducteur" As in all scams, the "terms" always look very "advantageous": 105 pages / 68270 words / delivery in 5 months, for which scammers have a budget for €14000 or €9200.

NOTE: The wording of the notice used by the "Attijariwafa Bank" scam is a copy of a genuine "Avis de Recrutement" issued by the "Banque Ouest Africaine de Développement" / www.boad.org .

Suckers taking the bait will have to send some money (360, 600 euros, whatever) to a Mr. "N’Dri Diecket" / Address: II Plateaux 01 BP 2549 Abidjan 01 (belonging to CENTIF / Cellule Nationale de Traitement des Informations Financières). Their mumbo-jumbo to make the whole thing look legit goes on for some 2300 words of pure crap.

A "Myriam Warner" will even send the unwary suckers a legit-looking contract (in DOC format!), containing these headings:

Adresse: Zone 3 – Almadies – BP 144 – Dakar
BANK: Groupe Attijariwafa bank
Numero de compte: SN35201370100383 5100010 2042 (FAKE, OF COURSE)
NUMERO FISCAL
SN DKR 2010 B 7408 (FAKE, OF COURSE)
NINEA 2511780 2 B 2 (FAKE, OF COURSE)
DAKAR-SENEGAL

The same "Myriam Warner" is also active trying to lure translators into the translation of her literary works. "She" will pay €7500 for the same 105 pages...

Another email subject used by Aminata Dramane is: "Translation project: Religion and social life of the Berbers in antiquity" and the bank for the "contract" is:

BANK: (BIM s.a.) Groupe Attijariwafa bank , Boulevard de l’Indépendance, BP 15 Bamako, Mali / Numero de compte: 5500010 2042

Disastrously, some reputed organizations have fallen for this scam with unimaginable results for their members:
APT – Associação Portuguesa de Tradutores (published the "bank offer" on their Facebook on 20JUN2016, after info sent by their President!!!). And, after being alerted for a very possible fraud, APT dauntlessly went on: «Este banco existe desde 2011, é um banco marroquino e a sua sede é em Casablanca. A sucursal que está a recrutar é a de Paris.» (This bank exists since 2011, it's a Moroccan bank, headquartered in Casablanca. The office responsible for the recruitment is based in Paris). Seriously, APT?
Alumni, Université Mons (Belgium) (made a PDF of the offer and published it on the University website!!!)

Come on, APT and Alumni UMons, DO YOU TRULY BELIEVE that any genuine offer from a bank would come from Outlook, financier.com and other free email addresses?

A translator from the US writes on ProZ: «I have signed a contract to do a translation for an author in Senegal through a university. (...) and am confident the offer is legit (...) Client has deposited funds in her bank, and I've received a confirmation of that from the Banque Centrale des Etats de l’AFRIQUE de l’OUEST, Groupe Attijariwafa» Then, she even says: «They're asking for a security deposit to be sent to their fund manager in Ivory Coast, via Money Gram, to protect them against fraudulent transactions/money laundering from Boko Haram and other terrorist organizations.» Boko Haram? Security deposit? Fund manager in Ivory Coast? And, lady, the BCEAO is a central bank serving eight west African countries and has NOTHING to do with the Groupe Attijariwafa! Still confident the offer is legit?

A translator from Peru: «a mi también me escribieron, investigué, todo bien (...) me pidieron una gran cantidad de dinero lo cual lo deposité en Money Gram a nombre del Sr. N'Dri Diecket» TODO BIEN?

And a translator from Spain: «yo también he caído y me han estafado 600 euros aproximádamente (...) Me cegué por el trabajo, necesitaba tanto que me saliera que me cegué. Lo he denunciado a la Guardia Civil en España» So, you filed a complaint at the Guardia Civil? Congratulations.

Where do this people live? Wonderland?

She immediately requested we give her a 5-star rating on ProZ, and especially curious was her request to be paid before actually providing us with the required invoice. When she did finally send us the invoice, however, she requested we pay her as soon as possible but refused to share any VAT number or address: I do not have VAT number. I am just freelancer translator.»

ABOUT IMAD ALMAGHARY
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Imad Almaghary is THE FOUNDER of Languagemet and Translation Secrets, two of the most active scamming joints in the translation world. Claims to be a member of the Arab Professional Translators Society...

In an article called "Translation Problems Amongst Arab Translators" (2002), Imad wrote some meaningless and profound crap as «Translation problems amongst Arab translators may above all and more than anything else widen, enlarge, expand and enhance not only mankind knowledge but also awareness that can potentially trigger a wide range of factual points on this topic»!!!

Or this piece of total nonsense, mumbo-jumbo from translationsecrets.com (now offline)...

On 11APR2015, Imad, the scammer behind Languagemet and Translation Secrets, went on selling more crap:
New E-Book: "Getting Work through Translation Secrets and Strategies" / This crap is advertised with more crap, like this: This e-book includes 8978 words, 389 paragraphs and 1325 lines. This is absolutely helpful for those who work in the translation market... It remains to be seen that translators spend a long time applying for jobs...

My name is Mr. Imad Almaghary. I am male, married and have kids. I was born in Libya in 1977. I live in Palestine. I have been working in translation and management field for 15 years. I have been doing study and research on this business for a long time with a very good experience which I would be more than happy to share with you. There are other two e-books that will be ready soon. They are: "Time-saving Methods of Finding Excellent Employees and Partners", Secrets and powerful mindset strategies revealed! And "Successful Business Concepts on the Internet", Secrets Revealed! Increase your online income!!!
This e-book costs 34.89 USD. I accept different payment options including Paypal and Moneybookers.


From someone who once wrote (in the 2002 article) another hilarious piece of crap: «...take into account the following expression, the United States secretary of States, this expression will be dealt with semantically wrong because it means prime minister but in the American English they say the United States secretary of States.»

On 2010, Imad changed his career and was looking for shoes "less than 2 Dollars for pair of Shoe"...

On his LinkedIn profil, he writes: «Full trust and 100 % honesty, credibility and impartiality are my real asset and investment.» This is a joke, right, Imad?

Imad Almaghary uses several aliases, or variations, of his name:

In Zoominfo, Imad presents himself as "Supervisor, Founder and Member of the Board of Governors" of Languagemet. In LinkedIn, Imad is "Senior Project Manager and Business Consultant / Translation Secrets" and writes crap like this: «Is it possible to make a one million USD starting from zero? Please let us know what you think».

In some forums, the email b@trgim.com is associated to the "Huda Translation Center in Saudi Arabia". And, yes, Imad is also associated w/ the infamous translationsecrets.com (said to operate from Cairo, Egypt).

In this LinkedIn page Trainer – The Islamic University Of Gaza, Imad claims this: «Full trust and 100 % honesty, credibility and impartiality are my real asset and investment». Trust and honesty??? And, he goes on with crap like this: «I run now lots of companies. I wrote many business books. Feel free to ask for any question. I can provide you with consultation».

Languagemet also uses this Skype number: (661) 748-0240. See also Note 79.

Imad's location data and phone numbers:
Albahar St (Al Bahar), Rafah Province, Gaza Strip, Palestine (same address used for Mondo Translations See Note 83)
Tel: +970598855968 (used also for Translation Secrets)
In Translation Directory and GlobTra, scammer Imad Almaghary lives in Seena, Egypt / Tel: 0020108472936
Tel: +972599851211 (werans.com registration data)
Tel: 0597601658 (in "Eman Tabasy" CV, as reference)
Tel: +970599851211 / translationcustomerservice@gmail.com (email from 17APR2017)

And what does Imad think about our Directory? This: «There are reliable translators whom I know and fully trust 100 %. They are listed in scammer website because that website is politically motivated to put pressure on successful Arabic business. (...) Those colleagues are from Egypt and could not remove their emails from there. I trust them more than I trust myself..» (LinkedIn). Coming from you, Imad, that's a praise.

On 16APR2017 (LinkedIn), Imad, calling himself "Senior Project Manager and Business Consultant" asks these "senior" questions: «What is the normal price in the market for English Arabic translation?» or «What are the common prices for English Arabic and English Chinese?» You don't know, "Business Consultant"? Two months before, our "senior" scammer had announced: «I can accept English Arabic jobs of 0.04 USD. This price is valid until 01/04/2017. Quality guaranteed.» and had another very "senior" question: «How can I contact or deal with end clients in the translation industry?» Someone responded : «Have officially Registered agency, etc.» What did our "senior" bullshiter respond? This: «Official registration is important. Yes. Well, where to find them? What is the way to contact them?» Not bad for a "Business Consultant"...

Yes, this lunatic also sells e-books...

And, because his scamming business may not going very well, he's now offering his new business: «15 % discount for all of your electricity, power and transportation fines.» Whatever that means...

Imad Almaghary HAS BEEN banned from ProZ and Translators Café
In their scamming frenzy, the Languagemet gang shows no scruples in the shameless use of another company corporate data.

On the "About us" page on Trgim.com (same phone number as Languagemet.com's, +972598855968), they claim that «We are not worried about money because anyway it comes»... Some correspondence from TranslationSecrets.com is signed under the name of Hanaa Kudaih (same name as a PM from another fishy Palestinian website: turjoman.com ) said to be based in Abu Dhabi, in which the pages "Language Quality Services" and "Our Translators" have been shamelessly copied from the Moravia Worldwide website. Turjoman phone (+971508140543) and Skype ID: turjoman.com are, of course, from Gaza, Palestine. They operate a GTalk account from languagemet52@gmail.com . The Skype address given on turjoman.com resolves to someone based on Rafah, Gaza. Not surprisingly, a Wael Yousef (associated w/ Gentle Translations Group) also sends mail from turjoman.\

Fast-track approach in multilingual translation services (LOL)
We can give you the best translation service because of the extent of our reserve languages (reserve languages?)
We trained the most excellent translators to get through with language barriers (really?)
Translators available in every region of the world (of course)
100% Human Translation Done By Certified Native Speakers! (NO Exception) (no certification is required when translators apply, only using the target language for 3 years and some experience of working as a translator)
Majority now opt for translations services for efficiency (really?)
And, about interpreters? Being an interpreter does not require anything else apart from a clear and deep understanding of two or more languages (of course)
We never stop working, not even on weekends (of course)
Adervising (lack of sleep, guys?), and
GlobalLinguals is the best! and A Vow of Professionalism (wow!)

In this online profilr (ALL NAMES ARE FAKE), this joker lives in a hotel, also in Paris...

Address: str. Avram Iancu, bl. 333 , sc. I , ap. 12, 730000 Vaslui, Romania / Tel: +40235340779
--------------------------------------------------
His real name appears to be Eugen Predescu. He tells us, in his own words "I was born in 1957, in Eastern Romania, in the village Valea-Oanei, district Vaslui, province Moldavia, not far of the river Prut". In this profile (now doctored), this lunatic says that "Vaslui" is in Illinois, USA... He lives in Romania, but claims to live in Paris, France, Paris, Texas (US), and in London (UK).

A self-proclaimed author of crap like "From Ptahhotep until Garcia Marquez" (using either "John Bloomen" or "Eugen Hulub" as the "author"), and "Swedish bitters is a traditional herbal tonic", and the author of "Parapsychology Today" (see also this hilarious ad by Eugen Pigeon aka Eugen Hulub...) and "Nicolae Ceausescu – the last dictator of Europe". There is only one platform where these books can be found, and, guess what, the copyright for all of them is "Public Domain" or simply don't exist! He keeps a Twitter profile as @pajbloomen (compare with this Eugen Hulub and this other Twitter profile, in which the address and phone number belong to the Chisum Independent School District, in Paris, Texas...) and on this Facebook profile, he studied (Class of 2000!!!) on the The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Massachusetts, USA!!!

On some platforms, he used the alias "besteugen" and "eugeneu". On a Freelancer profile, this clown says he is from Vaslui, Romania, that he was born in Paris, Texas !!!, that his native language is French, and that he also speaks Italian (a "French regional language"). On his Elance profile, he claims that «I worked two years in Holland and I spoke English daily»... On 02MAY2014, Eugen circulated a message on ProZ claiming that he was an anti-communist activist in Romania and that he's now "alone and very poor"...
--------------------------------------------------
Recently, DEC2015, under the name "laura", this scammer created a blog called "Excellent translation" translation2015.blogspot.com where he lists several translators (ALL FAKE). "Laura" requests contacts to mihai.tonescu@aim.com !!!

Email: robert.frogost@yahoo.com (see "LauraRobertson" before...) / Tel: (657) 675-6785 (FAKE)

As with his defunct "Militaris Translation Agency" he posts FAKE profiles of his "translators", e.g.:
Dubois Bouchard (France): photo of Gaspard Ulliel (French model)
Durand Gagnon (France): photo of Vincent Pérez (Swiss actor)
Gerard Gauthier (France); photo of George Clooney (yes, that George...)
Helmut Schneider (Germany): photo from here

John Wilson (UK): photo from Hugh Grant (yes, that Hugh...)
Edmund Davies (USA): photo from actor George Eades
--------------------------------------------------
Recently, starting on April 2016, this mentally deranged scammer devised an hilarious way of making a fast buck: pay me USD 25.00 to Paypal marigoldinternational@aol.com or I'll badmouth you online! He also adds: «Unfortunately I got ill (tuberculosis – TB – caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which affected my lungs) and I stayed hospitalized 6 months in Waverly Hills Sanatorium – 1600 Clifton Rd, MailStop E-90, Atlanta, GA 30333, U.S.A.» Funny: the Waverly Hills Sanatorium was closed in 1961 and was located in Louisville, Kentucky, not Atlanta, Georgia!!! This scammer uses these ghosts to ask for the money:

September 13, 2106 "Robert Frogost" emailed us from IP: 174.127.82.253 (anonymous proxy): «I sell bitcoins at very good price for you». Maybe the 25.00 USD scam didn't go too well!

On their profile on ProZ, GoldenEar claims to be a member of Norsk Oversetterforening (Norwegian Association of Literary Translators): besides the wrong URL given, what's the most logical membership for a Palestinian outfit? Literary Translation in Norway, of course... Gheed circulates a CV in which she writes such profound crap like this: «When I come about to translate a text, I think of it as a lovely villa which need to be decorated with a high ingenuity. I adore such work because I believe in my abilities of giving and creativeness and because I've been translating for a long time. Frankly speaking, I think Translation is my favorite for what I can provide and what I can gain in return. I have been waiting for such connection and chance to be close from new people of different origins, new mentalities and to let them get benefit of my creativity. Most of people told me that I have a special sense of criticizing, analyzing, and pensiveness; I used to be excellent in that since I was at the faculty of Arts. This Novel (she wrote a novel!!!) is going to be signed and delivered next week in a great party.»

Acount no.: 834 4052547
Bank name: Palestine Islamic Bank

NOTE 22 Zhipung Guo, aka Bob or Zhipeng Guo. Scammer's name is Zhu Wei and holds a bank account at the "China Merchants Bank". When asked: "Dear person called Zhipung, Bob, or Zhu Wei have you stolen Zhipeng Guo identity?", the answer was, to say the least, very informative: "He is my partner, he died last year".

NOTE 23 This scammer's CV shows his address as "n°107 rue de la jaladeporte 109, 34090 Montpellier, France". That's odd: The same address appears on the CVs from fake translators "Isabelle Saviano", "Marie Klotz", "Martin Isaac" and 12 others.

NOTE 24 Aliasgar Jamali / Aliasgar Najmuddin / Sk Aliasgar Jamali / Zain Zain (Translators Cafe) / Zain Freelancer / It all started with a fake CV copied VERBATIM from DayJob: «If u copy a CV from internet as a Template then what is the problem» What, indeed!

"Freelance since 2009" (on CV), then claims: «As a beginners (!!!) in this field i copied the CV available from a job website. I just copied the text regarding skills.» Responding to his buster: «I want to make a stable career in the Translation Industry. Pls forgive me for the mistake i had made.» or «I wasn't aware that copying a CV can be so serious and dangerous». And yet, his website shows: «Many years of experience (!!!) as a translation service provider...»

Address of CV in Texas, USA and phone numbers (469 901 1252 / 845 284 0052) are FAKE: «I am currently located in India» !!!

In OCT 2016, Aliasgar, who has no CV of his own, calls himself "Zain Translation", became a member (associate) of ATA and even has a website, where, of course, ALL copy has been plagiarized from other sources: Reliable Translation Services (BR), Meneghini Traduzioni (IT), SMH Translations (USA).

NOTE 25 On two messages forwarded to us, this ghost wrote: «I have worked with [some emails] and they have paid me befor and I have done another project and they promise to pay me next week as we agreed when I did the project. Can you tell me more about this matter as your list worry me and I am not sure where did you collect these emails from.»

After being told that this list doesn't deal with "bad or non-payers", the ghost insisted (letting his mask down): «I still dont understand your message about they are not bad or non-payment persons. Why did you cllect them and how did you get them and I AM STILL DOUBT THAT YOUR INFORMATION ARE FAKE ALSO.»

Both messages were originated from IP 198.144.116.217, a known spam harvester recognized by the Project Honey Pot.

NOTE 26 Owner of HM For Translation / hm-translation.com . Tel: +970598678625, from Gaza. Just another Palestinian scamming operator set up by the Languagemet gang: HM4Translation Services.

Wording on this website belongs to the website owned by Gentle Translations Group. On the contact page, Assan asks for your CV! They operate a almost empty website / www,hm4translation.com , with, of course, no names, and no address, but (again) with the same wording found at the Gentle Translations Group. Info about the owner of this domain/website is null.

Recently, emails are being sent out by this "company" under the name of a Fadi Z. Saleem (in previous emails, only "Fadi" was given; phone +972592118895, also used by Hanaa Kudaih), with an email already known to be associated w/ the Languagemet/Translation Secrets ring. Another email from these scammers recently emerged: Hanaa D. S. Qudaih / hqudaih@hm4translation.com / Tel: +972592118895. Look also for a scammer named "Helany Helany Ros". HM4Translation Services is a spin-off of those gangs or just another brand created to distract people from their already-burnt names: Languagemet/Translation Secrets. "Fadi" is also a frequent name shown on stolen CVs (on Document Properties).

NOTE 27 WHO'S WHO? A significant, peculiar part of this scammed CV (Translation of book-project research material for biographer (fields: History of Art, Literature, Literary and Art Criticism, Biography) is reproduced, VERBATIM, in other translator CVs belonging to:

NOTE 28 Scammer is a scam factory based in China impersonating the real Shiona Oldham, Business Development at Wolfestone Translation Ltd (UK).

NOTE 29 Scammer uses the name "Juanjo Martin Borras" or "Paloma" to lure translators with offers to translate books. Scam email is sent from IP 80.58.205.44, a known spam harvester and comment spammer based in Spain, as reported by the reputable Project Honey Pot. Activity by this scammer has been going on since 2006...

NOTE 30 Herich Gunawan (Liu) is a very funny scammer. He is based in Indonesia and operates behind various scamming façades:

herich-translations
Mothertongue Translations
Herich Gunawan (Gladden)
All these IDs have been banned from ProZ. On TranslationDirectory.com he is a Lithuanian to English Translator or a English to Norwegian Translator (As of 02SEP2013, both pages have been removed). On Translators Café, he works with Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), and Simplified Chinese.

He owns two active websites: herichtranslations.webs.com / mothertonguetranslations.page.tl and he's active in other portals (mainly in Far East region):
/indonetwork.net/HerichTranslations
resume.com/herichtranslation

Emails from (at least):
herich.translations@gmail.com
h5r9c8@yahoo.com (PayPal ID)
liu.translations@gmail.com (Liu Yong Fu)
translate@herichtranslations.co.cc

Tel: +6281267491675 / +6281277729499 / Skype: herich.gunawan / Twitter: @Herichg.

On his CV, he makes some ridiculous claims: «I have 5 (five) close friends (professional native speakers of American English, British English, and Australian English) to check and correct my English translation.» and (are you ready?) «My house is near several book stores as well as libraries in which I can easily get the required references for free of charge.» NOTE: On his website, herich-translations.webs.com/, he lures translators into registering their data and send him their CVs...

Sweet revenge: Herich claims that a John Stefanus Chandra, who keeps two fake profiles on Translation Directory: (Greek to Indonesian) and (English to Khmer/Cambodian), and another one on ProZ (English-Indonesian) was his "worker" and stole his idea for a website: nativitytranslations.com (inactive).

On recent insulting emails addressed to us, this scammer stated (excerpts):
«I pay translators, and thus I am not scammer as you said.» – This list is NOT about non-payers! It's about impersonators!
«You have to pay for that soon in hell. I believe in God. You will get what you deserve soon.» – We can't wait!

NOTE 31 Interesting AND FREQUENT type of scamming: "Sarah Smith" CV (with 5 different fonts and typos like "Summery OF Qualifications") bears the street address of Stefan Belger (US), the Education details were copied verbatim from Trevor R. Chichester (US), and the "Author" of "her" CV is Alice Wolfe (danishservices.net)... SWEET REVENGE: One unwary translation company payed the scammer by sending a check to the address shown on "her" CV, i.e., Stefan Belger...

NOTE 32 Scammer also uses the aliases Eng. Isabella Swares, EngIsabella (ID in several translator jobs platforms), and EngIsabella Swares. Claims to be associated w/ a (non-existent) "Alpha Translation Company, USA". On several emails sent to translators, "Carla Marios" presents herself as "Project Manager of Languagemet". Tel: +97255555555 (probably FAKE).

NOTE 33 Oscar Translation Services (OTS). The typical Palestinian scammer: "H. Joseph" is a ghost name created by "hani abu se3daj" (???), real name Hani Abu Saada aka Eng Hani Abu-Saada, owner of website oscartranslation.com (IP 178.63.16.195) and other two websites (both inactive): nikikani.com and professional-freelancer.com .

Address given for domain registration is "Wheda st. Gaza, Gaza 1221, PS" and mobile used is +972599614356.
On the website, their real location (Palestine) is carefully ommited (Spain, China and Egypt), and the phone listed is +970599614356. On emails, she uses the ghost name "World Wide Translation Services"...

These scammers are behind the scamming of Wang Jing's CV. They have created the domain professional-freelancer.com just for email purposes, e.g., jing.wang@professional-freelancer.com . The registration data shows it all:
Registrant Name: hani abu se3da
Registrant Organization: professional-freelancer.com
Registrant Street: Wheda st.
Registrant City: Gaza
Registrant State/Province: Gaza
Registrant Postal Code: 1221
Registrant Country: PS
Registrant Tel: +972599614356
Registrant Email: oscartranslation@gmail.com

When challenged about her true identity, he/she responded: "My name is Hani Youseph, it different in my passport to be Hani a.Y."

"Their" German address and phone +49 (1525) 3908050 belongs to "Claudia Gumbert". When warned about this, Caudia stated: «Thanks a lot for your E-mail and your warning. I have nothing to do with this company and I am very surprised and shocked.»
"Their" Spanish phone number (+34937652733) belongs to a "Niki Fabregat" / "Nicky Fabregat".
"Their" Mexican phone number (+527771029404) belongs to a "Patricia Novelo"

On ProZ (Oscar.T.S), they were based in Andorra (!).
On Translation Directory, "Hannee Joseph" is based on a PO Box in Andorra and in Egypt and has an Egyptian phone number.
On freelancersupport.com, uses the name "Hannee Josef" and lives in France (!).
On Facebook (facebook.com/OscarTranslationServices), of course, there is no names, and no location...
On Facebook (facebook.com/Professional.Freelance.Translation) they mention a domain / professional-freelancer.com which do not exist, and no reference is made to oscar translation. Of course, no names or contacts are given.
On LinkedIn, Oscar Translations have their "headquarters in Spain – Andorra".
On LinkedIn (profile now REMOVED), "Haneen Yousef" (1) claims to work for a ghost called "hanenko for translation" !!!
On Translation Directory, "Haneen Yousef" lives in Cairo, Egypt!!!
On TranslatorsTown, "Haneen Yousef" lives in Israel!!! or Hanne Joseph in Spain!!! or in Israel!!!
On jobs postings in Translation Directory, Hannee claims to be from Spain, but the IP places her in Alexandria, Egypt.
On a PDF flyer (bearing the name of author "Petra Schofield" from Schofield&Partner and made by copy and paste from this company and other websites), these scammers write: «Oscar Translation s management group is located at the headquarters in Spain – Andorra, while the companies in each country are headed by a Country Manager.» They keep two Twitter profiles: @OscarTranslatio and @oscartrans (Hani A.Y)

(1) The "Haneen Yousef" link to LinkedIn now resolves to another ghost called "Jatain s.alfonso (from the UK !!!), a "project manager" from another fake company: translation better for translation / BBT / Best Translation. bestofthebesttranslation.com / projects@bestofthebesttranslation.com .
As usual, everything is fake: Twantey tower 6/2, Colchester Essex State, United Kingdom (Essex State in the UK?) & +1 551-497-4310 (New Jersey, USA ???)

Aliases used: Hannee Josef, Hanne Joeph, Hannee Joseph, Hani, Hani a.Y, Ahmed Assar, Michelle Zhang. Real name is Hani Abu Saada. Most probably, it is another ghost ID for "Haneen Yousef", a scammer associated w/ "Languagemet" and "Translation Secrets" (See Note 6). The scammer tells you how the scamming of your CV will be done: «After you send your Resume you have to fill small form (i.e., the "authorization" for the scammers to "market" your CV), in order to add your complete information to our database, so we might possible be able to establish a cooperation».

NOTE 34 Fake IDs used by a scammer claiming to work from a non-existent "New Living Translation". These ghosts give an address in Northhamptonshire (UK), which belongs to the real agency "The Living Word Language Services Ltd". All genuine email from this company comes from addresses with @livingword.co.uk.

NOTE 35 A resourceful scammer: Works for Languagemet. Keeps two fakes "CV" on Translation Directory, in which (1) under the name of Dav Moly (resident in Haifa. Israel) claims to translate English-Japanese and (2) under his "real" name is a "Palestinian" with Japanese as "mother language". On both profiles, the phone number is the same: +972599498987 and the Skype address given on both (bmn101193) resolves to a "Yurika" in Hyogo, Japan. In short, a pack of lies...

NOTE 36 Another extension of the Translation Secrets scamming ring. They keep a profile on ProZ under the name "translators.success@gmail.com (Dubai, Dubayy)". They also use a misspelled email address: translators.sucess@gmail.com . They are actually located in Gaza, Palestine. On other sites, this email is associated w/ the infamous Mohammed Almassri.
On Translation Directory, this scammer is fuly identified as:
Eng. Mohammed Almassri / Project manager of freelance jobs (???) / Translators Success group
MSN: mohammedalmassritrans@gmail.com
Skype: mohammedalmassritrans
==============
Here is his "new" scamming "plan":
I have a new work plan and would like to see if you are interested. I can do marketing for your CV which means: sending your CV to many translation companies, and we share profit for this, the plan is as follows:
1. I will create a new email account for you.
2. I will modify your email in your CV as the new email account.
3. I will do marketing for your modified CV on the new email that I sent to you with the password.
4. You shouldn't change the password of this email.
5. You shall reply all messages that come on the new email account
6. When they ask about the rate/word, you shall tell them that, your rate for translation is 0.07 USD/word or at least 0.06 USD/word and for proofreading is 0.03 USD/word or at least 0.02 USD/word.
7. Then you take your percentage of 50% for translation and 50% for proofreading, and the rest is for me, fine?
8. For invoicing: I will give you an email address that connected to my PayPal account.
9. I will do marketing for you daily or as you like.
10. Payment sent to you monthly, fine?

Address in website is given as "P.O.B. 187 Jerusalem, Israel" (i.e., the Office of the Prime-Minister of Israel), but his own address is Gaza, Palestine. IP: 176.67.107.246 .

These scammers also operate under the name "PM Translator" / pmtranslation.webs.com , claiming to be «The perfect mediator between the Translator and translation agencies». Skype ID: pmtranslation (said to be located in Israel...)

Another website belonging to this ring is "Safey Trans" (Safety Translation): The domain/website was created only on 06 NOV 2013 by a Gaza outfit (Mohammed AbuYassin, palestine for information technology). As usual, there are no names, no phone, and no address on the website and all social networks links point to a Facebook page (Mohammed AbuYassin, gaza331) belonging to Mohammed Yassin, from Gaza, Palestine / Twitter: @gaza331 (MoHaMMeD #Gaza). Messages sent to "Khaled" at khaled@safety-translation.com are replied by Omar Issa / omarissatrans@gmail.com
And, of course, on their website they ask translators to send them their "CV and cover letter"...

Fadi al Akhras (Al-Akhras) aka Fadi Umar aka Fadi Omar / from Palestine. Uses safetranslate1986@gmail.com as a PayPal ID.

On his G+ profile, Fadi works at "Safety Translation".
Fadi Omar / supertranslator1@gmail.com, from Gaza and associated w/ Languagemet / Amazing Translation / Huda Center (see Note 6), is the scammer behind ghosts like "Jessica Eager", "Robert Tocco" and "Amable Nicolas Djoumessi" (FAKE profile in Translation Directory with Fadi's address: supertranslator1@gmail.com).

Sam Olivian (name used on ProZ profile
==================
"Mediator Trans" is another scamming joint by these Palestinian scammers. They operate a Google website:
sites.google.com/site/mediatortrans/home (NOW DISABLED, 16APR2014). Their address is "Middle East – Israel" (anything, but Palestine!!!), and they have no phone (of course). Mr. Abdullah Khalil / Mr AbdTrans (G+ profile) / mr.abdtrans@gmail.com . Most probably, this scammer is the same as "Mr. Abdullah" from Amazing Translations.

NOTE 38 Translation Team / Translators Team is another Palestinian scamming operation created by the people behind Translation Secrets: "manger" (i.e., "manager") is a Ahmad Mustafa. In their website, they claim to be located in "Nakla Elmotie, Hilopolis, Cairo" (of course, with no number...). Funny: they should have written "Nakhla El Motei St., Heliopolis, Cairo"

The Egyptian phone listed on their site (+20117525007) is a mobile number belonging to a "Naeema Joneedy" (PAGE NOW DELETED) (Naomi Jone / naoma101@gmail.com / Naeema Joneedy / njtrans@gmail.com . Skype: nayoma13. Recently, Naomi contacted us to claim that she had been scammed, and that she didn't know why her phone number is listed here! Why, indeed?

Naeema Joneedy also sends mail from info@alocalize.com (another brand associated w/ this scamming ring). The domain belongs to none other than Imad Almaghary. See Note 6.

On one "profile" sent in DOC format (largely copied from a translation company profile based in the Dominican Republic, Christian Translation), scammer claims to live in a Jewish settlement (!!!) at the West Bank (Alfei Menashe, ZIP code given is fake). On another "profile" (PDF), the address given (48 King George St. / P.O.B 92 / Jerusalem 91000 / Palestine) belongs to, no less, to the World Zionist Organization (!!!), and on another profile (PDF), these clowns moved to a new address belonging to a company called "Amerigo Global": 904 Garland St, Little Rock, AR 7720, USA (last digit of ZIP code deleted). In a recent flyer the ZIP code is 77201.

NOTE 40 The checking of "Tina Prevost" CV revealed some interesting info: a scamming ring put together by a Romanian outfit translations-service.piczo.com (CLOSED), that hijacks translators CVs. They own a PayPal account: reconstituire@yahoo.com . "Tina Stewart" keeps fake profiles at Translators Cafe and Translation Directory, and "Tina Prevost" address belongs to the Alhambra Hospital Pharmacy (California, USA).

NOTE 41 A new scammer around: she (?) keeps a profile on Translators Café.com with no information (it says only "Turkey") and hides behind two websites: mindbehind.info and wordscomeeasy.info (cross directing to each other, and with, of course, private registration data). Both sites were created on June 8, 2013 and both are EMPTY. She keeps posting "job offers" under the title «We are looking for linguists in all language pairs and specializations for projects».

NOTE 42 Stupid scammer! He/she didn't even bother deleting the legitimate name, address and emails from the original CV...
On a second scamming, he stole the CV from Eduardo Aníbal Bravo Placoná (Spain).

NOTE 43 False identities used by a scammer who lures translators into working on various projects to get them into an "advanced payment scam". Look also for these fake names: Isaac Hunter, Sandra Evans, Robert Donald, Jack Brown, Jane Spencer, and Dr. Dean Murray.

NOTE 44 Matthew Wells / wellsmatth@gmail.com is a ghost posing as translator. Photo on his G+ profile has been copied from this article (4th image from top). The fantasy address on his CV is:
812-0112, Fukuoka-ken, Fukuoka-shi, Jonan-ku, Tomooka 4 chome 11-1, Riverhouse Tomooka 202, Japan. This clown copied the CV from ANOTHER FAKE CV:

Matthew Murphy / mtmurphy6419@gmail.com . He keeps a CV on Translators Café, with the address:
202-A Weaz Terrace Nishihonmachi 2-3-9, Kasugai, Aichi 27023, Japan
Tel: 81 80 3829 0934 / Tel: (555) 782-4322 (FAKE NUMBER)

3242 South Lexis Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53208
Tel: (555) 782-4322 (FAKE NUMBER)

NOTE 45 New spin-off from the now-burned Palestinian scammers. Jasmine Adamz, aka Jasmine Welly, from Languagemet is now Jasmin Richard, Jasmin Sergany, or Jasmin Sanjrani (direct impersonation of this translator).

They operate a website: wabd4translation.com / info@wabd4translation.com (created on 20DEC2012, no visible registration data, and as of 17JUL2013, most of the website is empty). WEBSITE IS NOW CLOSED (31MAR2014). Their phone number is in Qatar (UAE): +9745963214. Of course, no physical address is provided, but their website operates out of Gaza, Palestine.

Powerful Translations: a new scamming factory. Domain powerfultrans.com has been registered by a known scammer: Abd Ali / Ahmed Abu Aziz / a.abuaziz@gmail.com also related to "Amazing Translations (see Note 37). The registration data is hilarious:

In this website, these clowns claim to "have 20 years of experience" (the website copyright is from 2014 !!!) and to "work from offices in London, New York, Munich, Melbourne and Istanbul", but, of course, no addresses or phone numbers are provided. No wonder: the copy of the "About Us" page has been copied from the website of "Language Connect". The "Translation Services" page has been copied from the website of "Quick Lingo Translation Services". They also copied texts from "ABC Translation Services" and "Diamond Translations", and tell visitors to visit their page "Translation Services Canada"... Now, they're in Canada, too? In their emails, they claim to be located in the USA, in this odd address: "Huntsville, AL 35813, USA, 19 Interpro Road, Madison, AL 35758, USA", and, of course no phone number is ever provided!

Tel: +1.2599625862 (FAKE NUMBER, THERE IS NO "259" AREA CODE IN THS US!). Associated w/ "Powerful Translations" and "Amazing Translations".

Copy of this website was plagiarized mainly from a US company: LanguageTran, wintranslation (testimonials copy were stolen from this company) and Trusted Translations. Some of the plagiarized copy is also present in the website of Powerful Translations (another scamming joint). These scammers claim to be located in "23 Shderot Yerushalayim, 68021 Tel Aviv – Yafo, Israel" (NO Internet footprint exists, except their claim). Being an "Israeli" company, they claim: «BasicTrans is an A+ Translation Agency as independently rated by the Better Business Bureau». Really? Of course, the link resolves to the listing of LanguageTran (Texas, USA).

Pino Alonso (FAKE NAME) / pino.alonso000@gmail.com

WARNING! To hide their location, these scammers use anonymizing routers (Tor): on this job post, the IP (204.124.83.130 gives away their practice!

NOTE 46 Chinese scammer using the alias "Mark Neos" or "Eric Mo". His CV available here has been copied from several sources, including Portuguese translator "Bruno Neiva" based in the UK. This clown, without claiming to know a word of Portuguese, includes in "his" CV the translation of Portuguese literature... His phone number – +86 13724202442 – has been stolen from a Chinese LED company, Sincemark Technology Co Ltd (website not available). On this LinkedIn profile, he claims to be named "Eric Mo", the "Manager at Neosmark Languages Co., Ltd" and identifies himself with a nice picture showing his back (!!!); on his Facebook profile he was a female (and now he has no sex!)...

NOTE 47 Scam put together by a "Nigel J Clifford", said to reside in Bangkok (Thailand), Hong Kong, UK, Uganda (LinkedIn) and Mauritius (IP: 41.212.168.86). "Nigel" keeps profiles in ProZ under the name of Tech_Scientific, and Nigel Clifford and on Translator Café (a "master" in translation subjects from A to Z....

Over the years, he has listed all these phones and emails on numerous CVs and websites:
bats@bats.com
nigeljclifford@gmail.com
nigeljclifford@hotmail.com
photolab@photolab.com
shangrila@shangrila.com

+6328360941 (home)

+6676612814 ext. 427 (home)
+4487013906051 (e-fax), +17862075172 (e-fax)

Now comes the interesting part: Nigel is sending out CVs under the name of real translators María Iglesia Ramos (born May 20, 1967) and Nadia Iglesia Ramos (born 30 May 1968) with both living at the same address in Madrid (Avenida Constitución 15, Cobeña, Madrid, Spain) and both having the same landline phone number +34-916-208-529; this number is also listed as Nadia's fax. One of the emails from "María Iglesias" / translation@madrid.com is listed on Nigel's CV for one of his references, a ghost called "Maria Bekkouche". Both CVs (María and Nadia) have been authored or last saved by, you guessed it, "Nigel J Clifford"...

NOTE 48 Under the cover of a respectable company, this Chinese translation company website (chinatranslation.net) reveals some interesting facts: CVs shown as belonging to "their" translators have been hijacked from real translators, and most of them are already exposed on our Directory: Abril Santo, Adolfo Mata, Anna Fernandes, Carlene Wirobski, Colette Crossfield, Eva Shaw, Flora Ktofiak, Kubus, Nadine Cobb, Paul Martini, Josiane Brisebois, Sandra Loris Angelo, Simon Dasse, AND MANY OTHERS!

NOTE 49 "Meenal Menz" is a ghost created by the scammers. Apparently, his CV has been copied from a "Meenal Yvas", who keeps a profile in Translation Directory: a resident in India, translating from German to English. BUT, on the one-page CV, the "Work Experience" has been copied verbatim from the LinkedIn profile of Dhivya Ravi, a Business Analyst at Dell.

NOTE 50 Another scamming ring disguised as translation agency. Mails sent to translators read «This email helps you, O translator on the marketing company for more than 20 thousand companies and to join us send your resume to this e-mail». In their blog, one can read gems like "We are a translators have experience and high efficiency and work a valuable field of translation and we will face new translation" or "We all have professional linguistic education with degrees", or "Arabic <> Germen". Look for names like:

Mr. Abdullah ("Project Manager and This Site") / jobs.ftrans@gmail.com
Mr. Rafat
Yasser Abu Harb / ag.ftrans@gmail.com

NOTE 51 Enter another scammer: Ahlam Zamli / ahlamzamli@gmail.com / ahlam.de@arcadialanguages.com / phone (Palestine, Jawwal): +972597734466 / Skype: ahlam.zamli. Recently, this scammer is sending emails with the usual infamous request «Please send me your CV and cover letter». When requested to provide information about her affiliation he responded: «I am project manager at Arcadia Language Company and it a new company. so I am not a member at ProZ yet. can visit us at: arcadialanguage.com». Of course, as usual, no address and no phone numbers are provided by the "company".

"Ahlam" claims to live in "al dahlea street , Rafah, Gaza, Israel" (!!! and, of course, never with a door number), and that she «acts as mediator between language companies...».

Domain arcadialanguages.com belongs to a "Arcadia Languages And Development" (located in Rafah, Gaza, Palestine). The address (translated) is "Garage Rafah – oposite the Government clinic – Building Shuwaikh – first floor". Their website copy has been copied from "Paspartu Multilingual Translation Services" (Greece), "Multi-Languages" (UAE) and other sources...

These scammers confuse their contacts with the name of the "company", indistinctively using Arcadia Language company, arcadia language, "Arcadia. Lang." (name on G+) / Arcadia for Translation, Arcadia Languages for Translation, arcadia translations (BEWARE: There is a company with name in Buenos Aires, Argentina) , Arcadia Center for Languages and Development (Arcadia Center for Development and Languages), Arcadia Center, ACLD.

On Translators Café, scammers claim: "Welcome To Arcadia Languages for Translation is a full-service translation agency located in Netherlands". The address given is "Sarphatistraat 614 1018 AV Amsterdam, Netherlands". This address belongs to "The LanguageLab Translations", a legitimate Dutch company (SEE ALSO NOTE 75). With all the bombing pouring over them, they moved the pages of the website to another directory (/translation/), and now they are located in The Netherlands (yes, they claim to work from the same address of The LanguageLab Translations.... Their phone (on emails) links you to a black hole: 009090-256-200-361. Language Lab is aware of this gross scam... After being exposed, these scammers no longer (08MAR2014) claim to be based in the Netherlands, and now list their address in Gaza, Palestine! They've also been BANNED from Translators Café!

And, of course, they try to lure translations into signing an infamous "permission sheet", where, no official name, no address, no contacts, no phone are included (sent from a Gmail address...)

NOTE 53 Scammer "Anna Nunez" (another Gaza scam) poses as a "special project manager" and lures translators to accept jobs, thinking they are dealing with a project manager from a respectful Canadian company from Toronto: Multi Languages Corporation. Revealing fact: Anna's PO (an impressive exercise of cutting and pasting impersonation was made by scammer “Hani Maghary”, aka Hani Meghary (see Directory) and Hani Al Maghary from none other than Languagemet. On another instance, "Anna" abusingly used 2 POs from a Dutch company, again impersonating a PM from same Canadian company. Of course, the translator, from Finland, has not been paid.

2. A page banner stolen from "Competent Translation" (Germany).
3. A fake address in Park Avenue, New York City, belonging to "Strategic Exchanges".
4. A fake phone number belonging to "TransPerfect" (i.e., same address as "Strategic Exchanges", but on a different floor).

Report received from a translator (09JAN2014): «On 27 December I got a message from Maria@multilanguages.me. I was asked to translate an urgent technical text (instructions). The volume was 2800 words. I translated it and delivered on 29 Dec. No reply. On Jan 2, upon my insistence, "Maria" thanked for the delivery, no details for the invoice. I sent the invoice to info@multilanguages.me, it was returned. Browsing the Internet I found you and Note 54. Of course I have not got any money.» We also have another report from a translator in Sweden (28MAR2014): «I have lost EUR 400.»

NOTE 55 Another outfit based in Gaza, Palestine engaging in misrepresentation and scamming translators and translation companies:

1. Domain greattranslate.net has been registered on 05 October 2013 and was mainly empty (but with"Referances" and "Langouages"). On 31OCT2013, website content has been removed and shows only a banner "COMING SOON".
2. Registration data shows no real owners. Website owners claim that company is based on Turkey (Izmir), but no physical address or phone is provided.
3. Emails sent from info@greattranslate.net originate in Gaza, Palestine (IP: 176.106.44.203).
4. Emails circulated show no name and no signature, and when asked for company details, communications was cut short. To hide their operation, they requested a project to be delivered "20st, Canada time".
5. A translator reports: «Great Translation contacted me, but the PM refuses to identify himself or herself»
6. After repeated requests, scammer wrote
===========================
This is our address,
address: Cobano lu Zekibey Cad.
No: 2 35260 Konak / Azmir / Turkey
My name is: hono boss.
No we do not have special phone, and we will do it near soon.

In other words, this scammer "works" in a bank branch of Türkiye Is Bankasi:

Çobanoglu Zekibey Cad.
No: 2 35260 KONAK / IZMIR
isbank.com.tr/english/content/en/expatriate_banking/expatriate_banking_branches_-436-413.aspx

NOTE 56 A European company puts an ad for a Swedish > English translator on ProZ and gets a message from an Indian company – Vokian Localisation – saying they had just the right person. When asked for his/her CV (without name/contact details), Sardy sends a falsified CV stolen from a translator residing in Portugal (which doesn't even work from/into Swedish). They keep a profile on ProZ (1469045).

NOTE 57 Scammer "Aletta Morris" (fake name) hides behind a scamming "company", Gotranslang Co / Gotranslang Company for Translation Services and operates a website – gotranslang.com – which is nothing more than a pile of lies:

1. Domain was registered on 18 May 2013 by a "Patricia Alex" / "548 naser street, Cairo" / Phone (Egypt Mobile): +201285489742.
2. Address given on the website – 82 rue Danton, 020263 Le Kremlin Bicetre, Paris is FAKE: door numbering ends in 50/51.
3. Phone number given on the website – +33(0)433651893 – is FAKE (a landline located in Southeast France...). A Parisian landline number would start by +33(0)1.
4. Social channels shown on the website are very interesting: Twitter account (alettaMorris) has been suspended and Facebook profile (aletta.morris) is empty.
5. Website copy and images have been plagiarized from Temple Translations, Lingo24, Inc., ME Localize, and other sources.

A forensic analysis to the emails used by these scammers lead to the conclusion that there are associations with the infamous Languagemet. Profile on Translation Directory was DELETED on 09MAY2015.

When asked for the company VAT number, "Aletta" gave FR31338382534, which belongs to "Jecy Traductions SARL", located in Nice, France... When asked for references, scammer "Marina Coria" / Marina.Coria@outlook.sa replied: «This is one of my references info@gotranslang.com for Aletta Morris.»

Aletta provides a PayPal ID for payment: walaa0599@gmail.com – a known email belonging to Imad Ali El-Mghary, aka Imad Almaghary, a known scammer from Languagemet and Translation Secrets / Skype: project.manager88 (also used by a Languagemet scammer: Riham Rafat, aka Riham Rafaat, Reham Rafat (real name appears to be Reham Raafat Mostafa)

About payment, this scammer (claiming to reside in Paris, France) pulls the old "friend in Palestine" trick:
«I prefer Paypal, since Paypal is not available we can agree upon bank transfer but I have some problems in my account and the bank I deal with would cut much money from any transaction that is sent to me. If you agree to send money to a third party it would be appreciated much. I have a friend in Palestine who is an accountant and a translator in the same time. I called him and he agrees to help. i worked many times in this way and it is safe. (Later, "she" said: I called my colleague and he accepted to help me, now you can send me the money via MoneyGram or via Western Union to the same person in Palestine, there is no problem to do that.)»

NOTE 59 Another scamming outfit from Palestine: Global Translation Services / 24gts.com / GTS Translations / Global Translation Services / Info 24GTS (domain created on 26MAY2013). Not surprisingly, these scammers try (once again) to hide their identity/location in Turkey. WEBSITE 24gts.com IS NOW CLOSED (10AUG2014).

Address: Uskudar, Istanbul, Turkey (FAKE ADDRESS, NO STREET ADDRESS)

Their PDF brochure is just a modified VERBATIM copy of a brochure from "Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Translation Distribution and Publishing" (Egypt). The author is a "qalkassem" (known name in scammed CVs).

The index page's title is "Trust-Translation" (!). And, while claiming to have 19 years of experience (!!!) and being "registered under ISO 9001:2008" (!!!), they write gems like this: How dpes that happent? / Portugues / We accpet

Domain registration is the same as above for 24gts.com: patrich mundo / patrich2017@outlook.com

NOTE 61 Scammer Hector Orlin (a fake name) circulates a CV stolen from Pablo Dezubiria (Colombia).

1. When asked about more contacts, like a phone, he gives a Palestinian mobile number (Jawall network): +972599904731.
"Because I'm on a visit to the Holy Land", he said...
2. Asked about the payment method, he uses the old "friend's bank account" trick, "because I'm on travel":

12 Al Nasr Mosque st, Al-Mansouria, Giza, Cairo 12962, Egypt

On Translators Café, this scammer praises another scammer, "Mark SoeJohnson" from Basic Trans (Note 45): «Basic Trans is so recommended». Really? For scamming CVs and impersonating translators?

Abdel's CV is an almost exact copy of Egyptian translator Tamer A. Mekhimar's CV. «This is the first time I see the CV of this Egyptian translator» said the scammer. In his exact words to someone who challenged him about his fake CV: «Thanks for your solid comment however I have a domain with a unique email and I am a certified translator not a scammer like you say. This is the first time I see this website and the CV of the Egyptian translator you mentioned. But for more security and safety, I will update both my CV and the website too. Hope I am clear now.» "More security and safety"? Really?

Recently (27AUG2014) this scammer requested us to delete the scam history: «Hope you are well and have a good health. Regarding the below link (he means this), I wish if you are so nice to delete it as I don’t use it at the moment and have my own CV. I can also let Mr. I can contact Mr. Tamer himself and ask him to send you a formal email with that request if it work with you. Please let me know what shall I do to fix this matter. At the moment, this matter doesn't harm me at all as translation field depends mainly in professional quality and meeting the deadline but I don’t like to have a negative history whatever it is.» You don't like "to have a negative story"? Too bad, scammer, because it is your story!

NOTE 63 Another large-scale Palestinian scamming ring:

NOTE 64 "Edward Mahana" introduces himself like this: "I’m a highly accomplished translator located in the United States".

He keeps a website (created on 31DEC2013, with HIDDEN registration data) with copy plagiarized from other translators (Michael Beijer, and others) and a profile on ProZ / xxxedward mahan (where he claims to have credentials for German to English translation by Asociación Argentina de Traductores e Intérpretes; AATI Directory doesn't show any member with this name). On this ProZ report, "Edward" is reported to steal sample translations from other translators and posting them as his own on his profile! ProZ profile has been deleted (11FEB2014).

Contacts (in email signature block):
162 lourmel street, Bridgeport,
CT 06706 United States (FAKE ZIP CODE)
NOTE: This same address is also used by the scammers from Lona Verbas / Professional Translator Team / See Note 69
Tel: (203) 212-8874 (landline)

On a older CV, his contacts were: 8386 Royal Oak Dr, Savannah, GA, United States / Tel: (912) 524-7932

Click to see this revealing image about "Edward"...

NOTE 65 Ferdi Dierickx / ferdidierickx@gmail.com / ferdidierickx@yahoo.com is another ghost created by scammers. CV was stolen from someone in LinkedIn, not even related to translation! Now for the best part:

1. Scammers took the name of a Belgian cyclist, born 1962, for their fake translator!
2. Then, they moved this guy to Utrecht, the Netherlands, where he has to live in a non-existing street!!!
3. Seems life was very hard at this place, so he started working as a translator at the age of 17.
4. At the age of 19, he was "Project Assistent in Finance", then he worked in IT, all of a sudden became a paralegal, then a freelance
translator, but he is also a "professional Environmental Planner".
5. For two years, he was a "Subtitle Translator" and, during the same period, "Vice President, Capital Markets Group".
Not bad, for a guy of 32 years of age...


Thank you, F.B. (Germany) for this great forensic analysis!

NOTE 66 "Arnold Conrad" is a low-profile scammer, i.e., doesn't emerge very frequently. So far, he's known to use 2 email addresses: ac4410768@gmail.com and arnoldtrans569@gmail.com . For someone claiming to live in USA, the use of Gmail addresses professionally is the first red flag one should be aware of!

The address shown on his fake CV is, of course, fake: 739 Choctaw Trail, 37405 Chattanooga (United States of America)

Reliable online sources indicate that this address belongs to a Mr. Darryl Lamont Carlton. On his CV, he claims to have worked for a company called "German to English Global Translations, LLC" with the same address as his own! Funny! This record shows the company located in Indiana, USA! This scammer also keeps a profile on "Outsource Translation". It appears to be a ghost created by the Amazing Translation gang (Samer Ghali).

NOTE 67 Alexander Bekkelund, aka Edward Alexander, Edward Alexander SillyWalks and possibly other aliases.

Uses these emails:
darkbreed777@gmail.com
languagesolvers@gmail.com
maggador@gmail.com (address also used by a "Magga Dora Ragnarsdottir"; is she Alexander?)
nyrdnet@gmail.com
shaganoz@gmail.com

Alexander's profile on Translators Café was removed on 03 JAN 2012. On Translators Café, Edward Alexander claims to live in Norway: Klaus Eggesvei 47, Kolbotn, Oppland 1410, Norway, but lists this phone number from Argentina: +5492983434356. Edward signs his message on "Background" as "Alexander Bekkelund". Alexander was banned from ProZ and Edward was banned from PayPal (under the name "JSP Ltd.")

Alexander is also widely known online (just google his emails...) for engaging in the sale of psychedelic drugs, "sprits" (EthnoSpirit, Argentina) and other weird stuff, or looking for "dried poppies powdered/crushed"! Exactly the kind of guy anyone wants to handle his/her translations... Claims to be the founder of a "Knall & Fall Translations, Norway" (fantasy name, ghost company, no website). Also associated w/ a "blog company" (no physical address) called "LanguageSolvers Linguistics Services", with these people:

Alexander Bekkelund / LanguageSolvers@gmail.com / Skype: maggador (Edward Alexander SillyWalks, Buenos Aires, Argentina) / Tel: +543548482462 (phone number in Argentina) / Twitter: @MaggadorIX777 / Keeps a profile in Facebook: "Maggador Edward Alexander" / Public Figure!!! / Claims to have written crap like this: "Earth: A Spiritual Trap & Practical Exercises to Ascend".

NOTE 68 Bridges Institute for Languages and Development is a new scamming factory from Palestine, operating on the same old scamming principle: luring translators into signing a "Authorization and Agreement" to "market" their CVs. Under this delirious and legally insane "agreement", scammers will "edit, moderate, and amend the CV provided to match the job needs" (!!!), and translators have NO right to know what modifications scammers make to their CV and NO right to cancel the agreement!!!

See also a post on ProZ about this scam.

On 24FEB2014, they circulated an email with the usual scamming trick: «I have been checking the most popular translation concerned websites and I have passed through your CV which looked astonishing. I would like to express our interest in Bridges Institute for Languages and Development (BILD) to have you among our professional team of translators. We are a fresh company working with freelancers all over the world and we are creating a team of professionals to match market requirements.» Of course, once exposed, scammers quickly repudiate every association with their own scam with the most hilarious excuses, in a ridiculous attempt to pass the buck and blame everyone but themselves.

Their website copy is plagiarized from various sources: Wikipedia, Cultural Spanish Communication, Advanced Language Translation Inc., and others. After being publicly exposed, most of their website pages are now empty (26FEB2014).

Website: bildp.com (domain created on 27JAN2014). Profile on ProZ: (1879733) (registration on JAN2014). They claim to be members of an association called "International Christian Universit" (the link resolves to the website of an "International Christian University" in Japan!!!). Their profile on Translators Café has been deleted (25FEB2014).

----------------------------------------------------
On March 1, 2014, following other messages strongly denying any association with BILD (of course!), Mohammed Abughali wrote to us a very explicit message about the inner works of BILD (with whom he is not related!!!). The closing paragraph is quite interesting: «Please, remove NOTE 68, and we promise that we will never do anything hurts translators, never scam any CV, and change the website.» Read our FAQ, namely paragraphs 02 and 47.

NOTE 69 Robert Wiscon (FAKE name) circulates a CV stolen from Casey Dovale (The Netherlands), deceased in October 2010. The document author is a “Mr.Omar”, aka Mohammad Omar, aka Omar Salah Ibrahim Al-Balawi from petra-trans.com and legotranslatinos.com (see Note 18). The address given is in Turkey: Büyükdere Caddesi No: 163 Zincirlikuyu Sisli 34394 Istanbul (i.e., he lives in a bank agency from the aktif bank, but the phone is from The Netherlands (+31) or Bud Abbottstraat 9, 1325 CP Almere, The Netherlands (Caseys's address). Skype ID: robertwiscon (declared location: United States). On his ProZ profile (1294133), he claims to be associated w/ BonaVerba and to be based in USA or in Turkey (translatorstown.com/profile/24128). On his G+ Profile, "Robert" writes in Arabic! Need we say more?

Recently, “Robert” became "Marcus Wiscon", still using the same stolen CV. His address is now in an impossible location in Germany: “8665 Sudley Road, Suite 305/ Manassas, 42551 Velbert, (Germany)”. Funny: he ALSO lives at the UPS Store of Manassas (8665 Sudley Rd, Manassas, VA 20110, USA).

The declared address of Lonaverbas is in Turkey: "Dolapdere Cad. No.310 Pinar Apt. Kat.5 Pangalti Sisli" (try looking for it on Google map!). On TranslatorsCafe, the phone number is +1 (818) 432-3939 (California, USA), and no email is provided!

Robert Wiscon / robertwiscon@gmail.com IS ON THE MAILING LIST OF TRAVOD (Note 73) and also appears on the website of LA Translation.
------------------------------------------------
BonaVerba* (bonaverba.net, now inactive) was located at a non-existent address in Turkey: “67 Sevegei Sk, Istanbul”.

Originally, the project managers were:
Caroline Wilsonn / caroline@bonaverba.net (see FAKE photo)
Helena Wisman / helena@bonaverba.net / helenawismann@gmail.com

Messages from Caroline Wilsonn were originated from IP 213.178.224.175, i.e., Damascus, Syria. On some platforms, they give this toll-free number in the US: +1 (866) 501-4068

* Not to be confused with Bona Verba, a company based in Finland (bonaverba.fi).
------------------------------------------------
After unfavorable comments posted online, BonaVerba became LonaVerbas / lonaverbas.com . Most of website copy is plagiarized from “Lingo Compass” (Australia). They also use this URL: mail.al-salama.net/index.htm. The domain has been registred by Baraa Kazzaz / barbooorz@gmail.com / Tel: +90.5346874435. On his G+ profile, Baraa lives in Damascus, Syria, but on the website registration data, he lives in Turkey, in some street named "Immigration Center" in Bursa / Twitter: @baraakazza

The same Baraa Kazzaz owns the domain ptteam.us alias for professionaltranslatorsteam.com (BOTH DOMAINS ARE NOT ONLINE AND ARE USED ONLY AS EMAIL SERVERS)

Recent data allow us to state that Baraa Kazzaz is an alias created by Gulser Baran. Baraa keeps a profile in Facebook: BarBoOor

Bona Verba and Lona Verbas keep profiles on ProZ !!!: 36047 / 1413019

Another alias used by Lonaverbas is "Professional Translator Team" (NOW BANNED FROM ProZ) is now using the following address: 162 Lourmel Street, Bridgeport, CT 06606, also used by scammer "Edward Mahana" / See Note 64

The declared address is in Turkey: "Dolapdere Cad. No.310 Pinar Apt. Kat.5 Pangalti Sisli".
On TranslatorsCafe, the phone number is +1 (818) 432-3939 (California, USA), and no email is provided!

People associated w/ this operation (all these PMs never show themselves in Skype or Google talk):
Baraa Kazzaz / barbooorz@gmail.com
Helena Wisman / helena@bonaverba.net
Gulser Baran / gulserbaran@gmail.com / gulserbaran@lonaverbas.com / Tel: +90.5346874435

Sonia Erkan / soniaerkan@gmail.com / soniaerkan@lonaverbas.com
Ivan Li / ivan.li22m@gmail.com is, in fact, Omar Salah Ibrahim Al-Balawi from Lonaverbas
------------------------------------------------
Anika Fikse / anika.fikse@gmail.com is another fake ID created by these scammers. "Anika" keeps a profile in Linkedin as a "Professional Translator and project manager" from the Netherlands. Except for LinkedIn, "her" Internet footprint is ZERO! Reports indicate that payments from "Anika" are made by Ibrahim Salah Alblwy, aka Omar Salah Ibrahim Al-Balawi out of Jordan via Western Union (See Note 18). "She" is also reported as a non-payer of very high amounts to several translators.
------------------------------------------------
Caroline Wilsonn (see FAKE photo) / carolinewilsonn@gmail.com is also associated w/ another scamming joint, said to be based in Beirut, Lebanon or the UK: LingoEcho (lingoecho.com is NOW CLOSED) and the "company" has been banned from ProZ but their profile is still active.

Names associated w/ this outfit:
Steven Lauderhil (Lebanon – Turkey) / info@lingoecho.com / stevenlauderhill@gmx.com / lingoecho@gmail.com / See scam
43 Hamra St, Beirut P.O. 34626 (FAKE ADDRESS)
1 Beachcroft Way, Courtauld Road, London N19 3HR
Tel: +1 (866) 935-8855 (toll-free number in the US)
------------------------------------------------
Credible and documented reports sent to us, make it safe to state that Robert Wiscon, aka Marcus Wilson, aka Edward Mahana, aka John Troops, aka Anika Fikse are the same person as Caroline Wilsonn (or vice-versa) sharing Sonia Erkan's email address and that they use their fake IDs as baits to fish for projects. Example: on Elance, scammer "John Troops" gives Gulser Baran / LonaVerbas as his reference!!! It is also safe to state that all the people above are also associated w/ a "Professional Translators Team" / professionaltteam@gmail.com / professionaltranslatorsteam.com (not active) / Prott. On their ProZ profile (1663897) NOW CLOSED), they claimed to be based in the USA (no address, of course) and their preferred currency is Euros! These scammers claim to be members of 51 (!!!) translation organizations. Not bad for a "company" with less than 3 employees!!!

NOTE 70 A wide and long standing scamming operation (at least since 2009) led by a Gyanendra Kumar, aka Gyan KJ, aka Gian, aka GK Jha, Prince Nishad, aka Ernst Heinz / Tel: +498978298208 / Gerhardstrasse 9, 81543 Munich, Germany, aka Rudal Kumar Roy (screen name on LinkedIn)

He also operates these websites: zielweb.com / zielsoftech.com / domain.zielweb.com

On this website, we learn more about this scammer: He runs a company in India, a web design/hosting service, which he probably also uses to run various websites such as tarintranslation.com, scandicnet.com (OFFLINE)). One of his latest incarnations is in the former company, using the name Kelvin Marks.

THERE IS A FACEBOOK PAGE ABOUT THIS SCUMBAG: Gyanendra Kumar – Scammer

NOTE 71 A scammer with many faces: is he Sebastian Maluf or Sebastian Mikaelsson? On "his" PDF CV, Sebastian lives in Poland, he is "Italian-Argentinean", and has Portuguese as "mother tongue"! In a Polish school, he is studying "Swedish and English philology, specialization: translation and literature"! And, out of the blue, he claims to be the "Official Translator of the Brazilian Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery"! On tradutores.com, Sebastian lives in São Paulo, Brazil and took a "Curso de legendagem e tradução (UCLA – Los Angeles, California)". This course is absent from his PDF CV! On Translation Directory, Maluf becomes "Mikaelsson", "English-Spanish translator", and identifies himself with a photo of Finnish singer Ville Valo...

Both Maluf and Mikaelsson live in the same address and have the same phone numbers:

NOTE 73 Another fake company luring translator into accepting their jobs: Wordminds / wordminds.com . The domain was created on 17 AUG 2013. It is just another façade for the infamous Travod International. (READ BELOW ON THIS NOTE)
They are associated with "Traduno – Online Translation – Traduceri online" / traduno.md (MD = Moldova)

In a recent contact, a “Anna” (no other name) sent a message from the IP 188.237.205.225, located in MOLDOVA (more below…). Contact was made through an anonymizer website!

When looking up "Wordminds Limited" at the House of Companies, we find that “Wordminds Limited” has been incorporated on 19MAR2004, and DISSOLVED ON 21OCT2008. The scammers took the name of a dead company, “Wordminds Limited”, and made up a website with it with no UK registration number, with a FAKE ADDRESS: Windsor Avenue, Wimbledon, SW19 London UK (still shown on Translators Café) showing no number and with an incomplete postal code, and with a map showing them located them in the Strand, and not in Wimbledon (actually, South Wimbledon). With this address burnt, they are now (04JUN2014) located in another FAKE ADDRESS: 26 York Street, London, W1U 6PZ, London.

Tel: +442081232852 / +442070978511 / +442071935480 / +442071930080 / +442071932946 / They also use 020 8123 2852, a phone number from Thames View Ltd / 41, Erebus Drive, London, United Kingdom, SE28 0GB / Other phones used: (347) 354-1821 / (631) 479-2692 / (631) 629-5163

Also weird: this "UK company" pays in Euros and requests jobs to be delivered in CET hours…
On ProZ, they're members of "Educational Testing Service – TOEFL" REALLY?
On Translation Directory, they pose as "Wordminds Translations (English to German Translator)" and claiming «I am a native speaker of German»!!!
On TRADUguide, they're located in the British Virgin Islands (recently they changed the address to the UK)!!!
On Twitter, they're located in ths US!
On their PDF flyer, they write: «Honesty and transparency are the cornerstones of our work.» REALLY?
Skype: wordminds.translate was located NOWHERE (later changed to London)! / sales1.wordminds (Andrew Wordminds)

This is just a hilarious example about how this gang does its business (!) in the translation world. In the words of one of their "sales managers" (read "spammer"), their job is: «Presentation and selling companies services through emails and phone calls. Database cold calling.» They last, on average, 4-5 months on their glorious spamming careers, and they work on this address Copou (Iasi, Romania), Habitat Building – Blv. Carol I (near TimeOut café). They are payed 1000 Ron (223,00 EUR/month) + monthly sales bonus!!! Read also how these clowns should be treated.

NOTE (06JUN2014): Claiming everywhere to be a UK based company, these scammers had to deny everything to one of their victims at the time of payment. Data from their invoice:
1. Payment method: Paypal: payment@wordminds.com
2. We are not subject to VAT.
3. Company registration number: 2053658
("because we are incorporated in Hong Kong, and we have a branch in London") Additional Note: "Wordminds Limited" was incorporated (in HONG KONG) on 13 MAR 2014. Company registration number (CR): 2053658. REMEMBER: Their domain was created on 17 AUG 2011! So, the "branch" was created 3 years before the head company?
In Romania, Wordminds SRL (CUI / Fiscal ID: 33653138) was founded in 03OCT2014. The phone number (mobile, Orange) on file is: 0745230049.

NOTE (02MAR2016): On 25MAR2015, another Wordminds Limited was registred in the UK (Cardiff): registration number 9508314 / Registered address: 60 Windsor Avenue, London, SW19 2RR (a mailbox address). And, who's the owner of this company? Taya Burnett, an Australian, residing in Australia!

And, where do they want to get paid («Not VAT payers», they claim in their invoices) ? Here: CIM BANQUE SA (Lugano – Switzerland). And when asked for a UK Bank account and a VAT ID, they just change their "address" in their invoices:
Suite 2405, Progress Commercial Building 9, Irving Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong (just another mailbox address...)

ABOUT TRAVOD / TRAVOD INTERNATIONAL / TRAVOD LIMITED
========================
The IP for “Wordminds Limited” is the same as for “Travod International”. Travod does claim to have an office in Moldova (besides New York, London and Hong Kong...), but the reading of this piece can prove very educational about the deceptive tactics of this Moldovian company… To our knowledge, this gang is NOT involved in the scamming of CVs, but their operation is but a pack of lies and deceptions.

Their domain travod.com has been registered on 11FEB2009 and ownership data is, of course, not available! They keep several profiles on ProZ: TRAVOD – TRAVOD (US), Travod / Travod International and TRAVOD freelance team.
VAT/TAX ID: 1688354 (in globtra.com). Where?

On this post on Translation Directory, Travod also claims to be based in the USA, but their IP gives them away: 178.168.59.25 (Chisinau, Moldova). Matthew Smith (a FAKE name), the "owner" of Travod wrote (see Posts) wrote: «Good news! TRAVOD Int. is now an ATA-certified language services professional!!» (SEE ALSO ON TWITTER) THAT’S A LIE! ATA doesn’t certify companies! And, even Mathew’s foto (NOW REMOVED) is, in fact, an Internet photo found here and here. So, who is the ghost "Matthew Smith"?

On their ProZ profile, Travod claims to be a member of the Asociación Argentina de Traductores e Intérpretes (their Members Directory doesn't show any "Travod"), of the Association of Translation Agencies (ataweb.nl), now called Netherlands Association of Translation Companies (VViN) (their Members Directory doesn't show any "Travod") and of a phantasmagorical "Asociación de Traductores Profesionales"!!!

Recently, they claim to be a UK registered company, Travod Limited (previously called "35 Beelions International Limited"). This new company has been created on 29AUG2013 (THEIR DOMAIN DATES FROM FEB2009) and the address is a virtual office on 24 Holborn Viaduct, London, EC1A 2BN (UK). There are 361 companies located on this address! In their brochure, "headquarters" are located in New York and London (how nice!), and Moldova is their "East Europe Representatives"...

Travod is always looking for "Sales Managers". Their job seems to be spamming websites and portals with ads about their outfit (see this example, together with Chid David below), and to create ghost users to provide crap referrals like this:

Christopher Cason said: "Check out Matthew."
Justine Lopez – Marketing Expert: "Check out TRAVOD International for prompt and professional service!"
Paul Frankenberg: "Matthew Smith is the real deal – check out TRAVOD International."
Peter Trapasso said: "Check out Matthew."
Randy Tucker: "Check out Matthew's TRAVOD International Translation.... You'll be glad you did!"
Steven Bonacorsi: "Matthew is very skilled in International Translation."

Recently, this gang started an ad campaign under the hashtag #IAmTravod

It is no wonder that Robert Wiscon / robertwiscon@gmail.com (a known scammer, Note 69) is on the mailing list of Travod. Being an agressive bottom-feeder, Travod will send their jobs to whoever is ready to work for 2 or 3 cents, false translators included.

Taya Burnett (Director, Wordminds, since 25 March 2015) / Lives in Australia
Tinvision Limited (Company Secretary, Wordminds, since 25 March 2015) / Company belongs to Taya Burnett (as of 09 Mar 2016, Ana Boisteanu).

According to the Companies House, Wordminds Limitied was incorporated on 25 March 2015. It shows an impressive Balance Sheet (as at 31 March 2016):
Called up share capital not paid: £ 1000
Net assets: £ 1000
Tssued share capital: £ 1000
1000 Ordinary Shares of£ I each
Total Shareholder funds: £ 1000
For the year ending 31 March 2016 the company was entitled to exemption under section 480 of the Companies Act 2006 relating to dormant companies.

DORMANT COMPANY? In essence, a dormant company is one that has had no significant accounting transactions during the accounting period. A significant accounting transaction is defined as one that the company should enter in its accounting records. Provided no such transactions occur then the company can have dormant company status. It is not required to file a profit and loss account or directors’ report. Dormant companies are also exempt from the requirement to file a corporation tax return. (SOURCE). And yet, with no accounting transactions to show (how are monies received from clients and paid to translators?) we read "Translators without Borders Announces Bronze Sponsor Wordminds". Another "no accounting transaction"?

NOTE 74 Another ghost company from Languagemet: Proficient Translation Services / PTS Company / PTS5.com . Website was registered in Gaza by Imad Almaghary (Languagemet). Scammers claim to be based in London, United Kingdom (but, of course, no address is given), later changed to NO ADDRESS at all, mobile: +44 864 0756580 (FAKE NUMBER: there is no 864 area code in the UK) / Skype: pts5.com (Location: Gaza, Palestine). Lately, they claim to be based in "Zoroub building Alshargy St Rafah Province. Gaza Strip. Palestine" (ANOTHER FAKE ADDRESS). On their website, the link to their Facebook page (with no address, no contacts, no anything) is named "Masters of Translation".

Website copy and images are, of course, stolen from other websites, namely goproofreading.com, tomedes.com, onlyfrenchtranslation.com, konsis.az, clickindia.com and Silk Road Translation (Russia).

NOTE 75 Another ghost company, a spin-off created by Arcadia Translations: Speech Global / Global Speech Ltd / globalspeech.co (without "m"). These scammers have been BANNED from Translation Directory (09OCT2014).

Website is a copy of a musician's website, Bill Smith (including audio tracks, with links leading to a black hole...), with a fake address (it belongs to the legitimate company "Language Labs" in The Netherlands), and, of course, no names, and no phones. In a word: the usual scammer's bullshit. On their emails, they claim to be based in "Sarphatistraat 614 1018 AV Amsterdam, Netherlands" (see Note 51). On the website, the location map is for Scottsdale, Arizona, USA!!! The domain globalspeech.co has expired and the website is now off the air (JAN2015).

NOTE: Info cross-checking allows us to say that Speech Global and Wordsbreath ARE THE SAME THING. The addresses words.rainbow@gmail.com AND wordsbreath12@gmail.com are the emails that Global Speech use to get jobs. Sana'a Ahmed is behind the wordsbreath12 email, but they also reply to mails using the words.rainbow one, and outsource work using Global Speech emails (with the fake names and the Dutch address). They also also associated with Words Cloud (See Note 97). They are all based in Rafah, Gaza.

Recently (FEB2016), these scammers (Samanta Rowe) are impersonating SDL with emails in Danish, inviting translators to do test translations for SDL: Mange tak for din henvendelse og din interesse i at blive freelance oversætter for SDL (Thank you for your inquiry and your interest in becoming a freelance translator for SDL).

NOTE 76 Another ghost company created by Languagemet and Translation Secrets: Wordsvoice / Wordsvoice Company / Words voice company / Words Voice Multilingual Solutions / German Wordsvoice / WV Company / wordsvoice.com . Website copy has been plagiarized from "Ocean Translations" (Argentina) and Skrivanek / No phone, of course. Claiming to be based in Italy, they write on their website: «Argentina’s first professional language translation provider» and «Skrivanek uses all the current Cat tools» !!!

Mode of operation: scamming of CVs, after promising the marketing of translators' CVs and "strong propaganda", and, of course, "work on many projects"... The usual scammers' speech! See the scam in their own words!

Email sent by Roza Yasn: «Words voice company deals with many clients who ask for translators every day. In the company, there is a marketing department that can send your C.V to a lot of companies. After marketing your C.V, I will receive translation, proofreading, transcription, subtitling or editing projects.

NOTE 77 One more FAKE company based in Gaza: Unlimited Translation Services / Ulimited Translations Services / UNL Translations / UNLTRASLATIONS Translations / ULTDTrans / ULTD Trans Co. / ULTDTRANSE (name used on LinkedIn) / Unltranslation / unltranslations.com / ultdtrans.com . Domain was created on 09NOV2013 and it is owned by a "Ahmed Y. Lafi" (Gaza) / alafi88@gmail.com / +970599563934 / Twitter: @alafi88

unltranslations.com (CLOSED, 07APR2014) / ultdtrans.com (ACTIVE, created on 09NOV2013).

On their website they claim: «Unlimited Translation Services is an ISO 9001:2008 certified translation company based in Portland, Oregon, USA»!!! The address is, OF COURSE, missing...

Copy on their ProZ profile has been plagiarized (as usual) from other companies: for instance, the "Industries" page of their website is a verbatim copy from the website of "Andes Translations" (San Jose, CA, USA). Also on ProZ (1860182), they claim to be certified to «ASTM F2089-01, ASTM F2575, EN 15038, ISO 9001, Notary Approved, SAE J2450, SDL Certified» and members of «Aalborg University, Asociación de Intérpretes de Conferencias de la Argentina , Associazione Nazionale Interpreti di Conferenza Professionisti, Austrian Association of Certified Court Interpreters, Centro Colombo Americano, International Association of Conference Translators, Union of Translators of Russia, University of Iowa, Department of Cinema and Comparative Literature» (REALLY?). This fake information is absent from their website!

«Unlimited Translation Services is an ISO 9001:2008 certified translation company based in Portland, Oregon, USA (!!!) / We are one of the only translation agencies to publicise a CSR policy (where?) and actively support ethical and sustainable practices / We are ISO 9001 accredited» With scammers, anything goes!

Address on website (FAKE): Sw 6th, Beaverton, OR 97007 / Gaza office (they say): Al-Shuhada' St, Gaza Strip, Gaza, Palestine
PO issued by these scammers made by "awadallah" & signed by "Dalal Nada" / "company phone": +972592135800 / Trying to evade location, they send their emails from AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) / Andrew Alix is also a ghost created by "awadallah".

On Translation Directory jobs section, they write:
ULTD Translation Company
USA !!!
IP: 85.114.107.194 (Gaza, Palestinian Territory)


Like other Palestinian scammers, burnt everywhere within the translation community, these scammers post their "jobs" (gotten with fake CVs) in second-tier sites like adzuna.co.uk, jobrapido, Jooble, translancer.net, trovit, UpWork.

NOTE 78 Translation Community / Translation Community Co. (!!!) / Translation Community Company for Translations / Translation Co / translationcommunity.co is a FAKE company based in "Portugal" (see another FAKE company based in "Portugal") created by the infamous Languagemet / Translation Secrets scamming gang based in Palstine / Gaza. They use IP 5.11.41.173 = Gaza.

Domain registration data:
Registrant Name: Haidar Musabeh aka Haidar Fayez Musabeh (tel: 0595661830 / screen names: Dr.7ydar & @bestyle / associated w/ Basel Nahal Note 78) (more info on Note 121)
Registrant Address1: Palestine
Registrant City: gaza
Registrant Country: PALESTINIAN TERRITORY, OCCUPIED
Registrant Phone Number: +970595831808 / +971554601093
Registrant Email: smartcoders@hotmail.com (also associated with Globallingo / Note 121)

And, why would a company purportedly based in Portugal register a domain in COLOMBIA (.co)?

THEY HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM ProZ.

Website copy has been mainly plagiarized from Zelenka Translations (Czech Republic) and Tradu24 Limited (UK) (in their "About Us" page, we can read: «Quality not only assumes a central role here at Tradu24...») and shows some hilarious typos, like “Quta Request” and “Propsas”.

Address given on website (in Lisbon, Portugal) is FAKE: Rua Sinais de Fogo, Lt. 9.12004-H, Parque das Nações 1990-605 LISBOA

Recently (MAR 2015), these scammers amended their website and claim that Lisbon is their "second branch", the "first branch" being at: Alremal tower, Omar Almokhtar St, Gaza, Gaza Strip, Palestine (ALSO A FANTASY ADDRESS). Of course, the "first branch" has no phones... Phone numbers given are also FAKE: Mobile: 01914972344 (???) / Tel: 218942135 (NOT EXISTENT)

Typical email circulated by these scammers: «We are very interested in establishing a long-term collaboration with you after we see your work, our clients asks to view your CV to be able to evaluate your capacity. Therefore, we humbly request to have your permission before offering the CV to the clients. It's like we are marketing for your CV to our clients, so we can easily bring you more translation projects to work on.»

NOTE 83 Mondo Translations / Mondotranslations / Mondo Translations, Ltd / Mondo Translations Ltd / Mondo-trans / mondotranslations.com is another creation of the infamous Palestinian scamming ring (Languagemet, Gentle Translations Group, Translation Secrets, Muchdo, etc.). They FALSELY claim to be members of the Association of Czech Translation Agencies and Atlanta Association of Interpreters and Translators and to be ISO 9001 certified!!!

AS OF 08 MAY 2014, THESE SCAMMERS HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM TRANSLATION DIRECTORY!

Ahmad Hassouna, the owner of the Mondo Translations domain (created October 11, 2012), has the SAME PHONE NUMBER of Gentle Translations Group: +972592581826. Scammer behind this operation is a “Ahmed Omar” / Ahmed Omar Abu Elkhair (al-Khair). He uses “Ahmed” in job posts for Gentle Translations and “Eng.Ahmed” (no space) for jobs posts for Mondo Translations. "Eng.Ahmed" is none other than Ahmed Omar (@realahmed8). Computer Engineer | MBA Student | CEO and Founder of Gentle Translations Group.

In LinkedIn, Ahmed Omar appears as Founder and CEO of yet another scamming outfit: The Palestinian Center for Translation Services !!! (just a fantasy name, no domain). His Facebook account is /realahmed8 (no photos of himself and no friends) / Twitter: realahmed8 / Eman A. (a very convenient name) is also associated with this "Center". On LinkedIn, he says: «With me, you have no worries».

They claim to have offices in Argentina and in Jordan, but, of course, only email addresses are given and the Argentinean physical address is a very "British" "33 Main Street" in Mendoza... Guess what? The "Main Office" in Gaza is also located on "33 Main Street" (just like the address from Gentle Translations: “33 Main St., Rafah, Gaza Strip, Palestine”...). On their ProZ profile, they're also located in Jordan, but nobody knows where...

These scammers also use other phone numbers: +972592429993 (Palestine) and a US number in Ohio (234) 234-2345 (for a FAKE New York address belonging to the Bank of New York on Wall Street!!!). On their profile in Elance, they claim to work for a phantasmagorical "Gentel Translation"!!!

This phone number is also used by a ghost called Jenni Gilbert / jennigilbert64@gmail.com / on 06DEC2016, they created the domain creative-translators.com :
Registrant Name: JENNI GILBERT
Registrant Street: USA (FAKE)

NOTE 86 Another scammer: Gordon Osullivan / Gordon Translations / Gordon Translation / gordontranslations.com. Claiming that «We have been in the business of Translation for a long time», this scammer registered his domain ONLY on 12 SEP 2014!!!

On 16SEP2014, this scammer was removed from Translation Directory and also from Translators Café.

As usual, the domain registration is private! Also, as usual with scammers, the website copy has been plagiarized from translatecompany.com . Of course, payment is by PayPal!

With her CV (a copy and paste piece of work), she must be, at least, 170 years old (it's just a shame she doesn't educate us about her DOB...). She is capable to translate from eye and gynecology surgery, to oil pumps, to advanced physics, to patents in adhesive resins, and to certified financial translation. On 2003, she stated on a ProZ Powwow to be "25 years old"... Her passport (if genuine) shows her DOB as 18MAR1979.

On her CV on ProZ Profile, Shimaa Aly (DELETED), she is "Egyptian / South African".

Shaima Aly is also a "Gender Program Manager, and Gender and Communications Consultant for various NGOs in Egypt and Slovakia" Really?

She keeps another ProZ profile: Shimaa A. Majeed / Shimaa Aly A.majeed / shimali2001@lycos.com . CV on this profile shows "Shimaa Aly Abdel Majeed / mrs.shaimaa" as her name.

"Sorry for my late response as I was abroad". We understand, Shaimaa, scammers are always on the move...
"For some family reasons I am currently -for 2 months only- in "Romania, Oliarova street, Bucharest, 7661. TeleTel: 0040373782710". Nice address, scammer! Where is it? We also love the FAKE phone number...
"Sorry, I have never been asked to provide ID for any company I am working with." We understand! It's the typical scammers' response when asked for any proof of their ID!
"I am originally Egyptian with EU permanent residence". Where? Any phone number to show us?
"I am based in EU zone (...) here is Austria". Now it's Austria?

About Oliara Hudzikova / Saudi Arabic native speaker / I am Saudi Arabic speaker based in Romania: In the e-mail address the name written is Oliara Hudzikova and the e-mail message is signed as Oliara Aly. "Oliara" responded: "My mom was originally Albanian and my father was Saudi where I lived most of my life. She named me after one grandmother, so my name in full is Oliara-Shaima Aly". Of course, Oliara, Shaima, Aly, whatever...

NOTE 99 Hans Rainer Biermann / Hans-Rainer Biermann / Wackenbergstr. 29, 13156 Berlin / Tel: +4903020896777 (DISCONNECTED) / CV author: ak ??? Claims to have taken "English to German & German to English (Ernst Moritz Arndt-Universität Greifswald)". In fact, his practical work (1974) was named "Untersuchung von Abwässern der Düngemittelanlage und Bilanzierung der Stickstoffverlust in den Abwässern dieser Anlage" (Investigation of the fertilizer plant effluents and accounting for the loss of nitrogen in the plant effluent). Also claims to work with Dutch to German (no Dutch-learning background is provided).

"Hans" requests payment / see other payment to be made to an Estonian company!!! Why? «The idea is that they simply help me with my accounting things and, in some cases, representing as a translator, recommending to their clients, etc., but all this gives me more free time for my work.» REALLY? Either "Hans" uses the Estonian company for tax evasion in Germany, or the Estonian company A2Z Ltd. uses the profile and identity of "Hans Rainer Biermann" illegally to apply as "German native" freelancer on ProZ.

When asked again to confirm his phone number, claimed to be staying in Estonia and could not take the call. To make it even more dubious, his messages are sent from an IP Address located in Kiev, Ukraine: 194.242.103.175 (blacklisted by many sites online).

Small wonder: the scammer behind this ghost "Estonian" company is Alla Kondrat aka Alla Ovod from Prilyki, Ukraine. She uses the screen name @allaovod on freelance.com, where she also claims to own the domain a2zltd.com . She is also known for writing plagiarized crap about tarot, feng shui, personal finance, marketing, English language, etc. Keeps profiles in LinkedIn and in ProZ (both under Alaa Ovod / allaovod), where she says nothing about A2Z Translations / a2zltd.com

About "her" Estonian company: OÜ A2Z / A2Z LTD – Translation Agency / A2Z Translations / a2zltd.com / Registration number (Estonia): 12529311 / Address (virtual office): Partisani 6-33, Narva 21007, Estonia / Tel: +4901765182078 / +4917651820786 (German phone numbers?). Valid value added tax identification number does not exist. New website doesn't show any address or phone number (AUG 2015).

Domain registration data is conveniently "protected". On 3wjobs.com, they are based in London. This company and its owner also owns LingvaTrans.com (domain created 28FEB2014, website empty on MAR2015):

Alisa Zingerman now gives Hebrew lessons online on learnhebrew.eu . Alla Ovod and "Hans Rainer Biermann" are strong advertisers, using the exact same wording...

On this job offer, a "Maria" from A2Z L. (in Ukraine) is looking for translators for "part-time job from home": «Basically, no previous experience in translation is needed, but some experience in technical/medical/business fields is preferable.» OK, we get the idea, "Maria"! Same offer can be seen here. Or this Job For-Inernatioanal-Students (in RUSSIAN).

NOTE 100 Frenchman Aymeric Mathéossian created yet another translation portal: "QIWE, outil pour traducteurs et agences de traduction. Publication de projets par les agences, proposition de devis par les traducteurs" / qiwe.fr . The registration data is conveniently protected, but he left his name embeded in the HTML source of the website.

The domain / website was created on 22MAR2015 and, at least, on 01APR2015, it listed the fantastic number of 3620 translators!

Following several complaints from translators who have never registered in the site, the translators listing was REMOVED. On 04APR2015, the site still lists 84 translation agencies. The website shows no ownership data and no physical address and contacts. Being a French e-commerce site (site marchand), the required "Déclaration CNIL" is not shown (En cours). CNIL is the "Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés".

NOTE 101 Nardina Alongi is a name well known among translators and synonymous with NON-PAYER. The known reports available online puts the scam into the hundreds of thousands of owed money!

More info about this scam: nardina-alongi-translation-scam.blogspot.com (by Colin McCullough)
In this piece of crap, Nardina claims (FALSELY) that Globale Kommunikation is a member of the American Translators Association:

Globale-Kommunikation Munich is, besides the mentioned certificates, a member of the ata – the American Translator Association. For this since 1959 existing Association for supporting international translation services of all occupations only the best qualified services can apply.

The same Umsatzsteuer-Identifikationsnummer (Germany: USt-IdNr.) – DE280550268 – is used for ALL "companies" associated with Nardina...

NOTE 102 Another FAKE company, created by Palestinian scammers, also based in "Portugal": One Touch Translation / OTT / OTTranslation / OTT Zone / ottranslation.com (domain registration data is, of course, hidden). Domain was created on 27 NOV 2014. The website copy is, as usual, plagiarized from other websites: Somya Translators Pvt Ltd (India), Vinclu (UK), Translation Central Ltd (UK), Global Quality Solutions Ltd (UK), i Translation Zone (India), Optilingua International (Switzerland) and other online sources. The entire website, including its logo (modified), has been stolen from here / OTT website was disabled (19FEB2016) and active again (12APR2016).

The address is FAKE: 677, Moo 6, Algés Lisboa, Portugal / No phone, of course. Now, they "moved" to: City Cinter. Rafah Province, Gaza Strip, Palestine or Sultas St., Rafah, Gaza Strip, Palestine. Did they also move their "Portuguese" staff, including "Anna", the CEO?

NOTE 103 Another monumental scam: Simi Agarwal (or Dr. Simi Agarwal) is the owner of a ghost "Telematic Solutions Translations" based in India with no address, no website, but, of course, a Gmail address...

Telematic Solutions Translations / Tel: +911294071529 / Mobile: +919958455229 / +0300-5337956 / Skype: tele_solutions12

BANNED FROM PROZ: Simi Agarwal / Telematic Solutions Translations (previously T.M.Solutions – Languages Translation Bureau).
still active under the name "translation_exp"; Simi is also BANNED from Translators Café.

Simi is also behind another Telematic Solutions, a company operating in the IT sector (impulseinternational.com):
Address: 529, Ground Floor, Mother Dairy Road, Sector 17, Faridabad (Delhi NCR), India 121002
Email: simi@impulseinternational.com

Screen names used: sp_winner (ebay) / S Agarwal (other online portals)

On her LinkedIn profile Simi is Dental Surgeon, Doctor (Pune University) and a self-appointed "Presiding Manager of Prestigious Diamonds and Jewellery Who's Who Group on Linkedin" (yes, she also sells diamonds...), and «Simi & her family are owners of large scale Rice mills and are supplying Rice and such commodities to clients worldwide. Her father has been Adviser to Power Minister of Mauritius».Simi is also ready to sell "Raw Cashew Nut in Shell" or buying Diethyl Benzene...

The comment on this link – 1. Translator – June 19, 2009 -- is also eloquent about the association of Simi with Somya Translators Pvt. Ltd. (also in India): «I used the direct contact button on the platform – and got an answer from tele_solutions12@yahoo.com »

Domain owner: Archana Singh, also owns the following domains:

NOTE 104 Emma Carré / Emma Translations / Native French Freelancer / (also uses "Pure Translations") is a bold and resourceful scammer:

CV circulated by "Emma" was stolen from Fabien Champême (Spain), Aleksandra Sondermeijer (France), Hillary Nichole Carroll (UK), Mitsuyoshi Takeyama (Japan), Emi Wakai (Japan) & other sources.

The address on CV – 6 ancienne route impériale, 04000 Digne-les-Bain, France – belongs to a genuine translator, Jean-Luc Dumont, France (his CV as also been scammed as "Amanda Charass"). Phone on CV (FAKE): +33975180831

Emma's CV is also found on chinatranslation.net (a company known for posting FAKE CVs online) as "Chloe S. Costantino" and as..."Emma Carré". BEWARE: On the CV, the "Online Quote Form" link redirects to the quotation form of a company called "Taohai Global Solutions" (China) and the "Send an e-mail" link redirects to "mailto:" to the same Chinese company: "mailto:quote@taohai.com%3Fsubject=Quote%20for%20Chinese%20Translation". Note: the same link and wording found in Emma's CV is also found here (see bottom of page)...

Claims on CV: «English: STEP 1st Grade (Charter No. 3383) Professional English Interpreter 2nd Grade» copied verbatim from Mitsuyoshi Takeyama (Japan) and «Licensed guide (English), French National Tourism Association TOEIC 950» copied and modified from Emi Wakai (Japan). Note: TOEIC is a registered trademark from the "Educational Testing Service" (USA, Japan).

Domain registration data for emma4french.com is, as usual, confidential. About the website:
1. Domain created on 24 JUN 2013 (some entries on the website are dated October 2009...)
2. Domain name xxx4french is typically used by Palestinian scammers.
3. Address: Our Company Inc., 2458 S . 124 St.Suite 47, Town City 21447 (REALLY?) / Phone: 124-457-1178 / Fax: 565-478-1445 (FAKE)
4. Copy in website has been plagiarized from Naked Translations (from Céline Graciet, UK), Laura Ball (UK), À la carte translations (UK), and other sources.
5. Website closed (JUL 2015). Fighting scammers works!

All websites use search engine spamming lingo like: Best Speak Spanish Translation Services or Don't Be Afraid To Trust Cheap Translation Services. Their online spamming also use other channels...

When asked about their location, they respond: Hello. Unfortunately, I cannot disclose our physical address.

A "Aurora Smith" keeps a profile in Google, claming to be associated with Best Translation Services. "Her" photo was stolen from a LinkedIn profile (color changed and fake glasses added...). Being a "marketing expert", "she" writes crap like this: «I enjoy the world of languages, there is such a mystery in discovering native tongue from the perspective of foreign language».

And, it's the address for an hotel!

Ankit keeps various profiles in Translation Directory:

NOTE 107 Real Translator Jobs / Real Translator Jobs Inc. / Real Translator Inc / RTJ / RT®J / realtranslatorjobs.com / 1847641 Ontario Limited

An abnoxious and shady organization dedicated to extort money (they call it "membership fees") in exchange for "fantastic translation jobs": «There are many translators earning well over $100,000 usd a year.» (website FAQ)

One opinion about this scamming operation: Real Translator Jobs Scam – Unbiased Review
And another from the No Peanuts! for Translators website.

Their website shows some very interesting information:
1. Domain registration data is HIDDEN
2. NO physical address and NO phone number

However, in their "agreement" (they call it "Management Agreement RTJ"), they include these data:
1. 1847641 Ontario Limited (aka Real Translator Inc). No records exist about this "corporation; there is, however, a genuine 1847641 ALBERTA LTD. (a Numbered Corporation incorporated 2014).
2. In the signature block, they include this absurd statement: "Guardian's signature if Translator is under 18" !!!
3. Address: 2063 Yonge Street, Suite 202, Toronto, Ontario M4S 2A2, Canada (exactly the same address for a model and talent management company called MAX Agency / maxagency.com ) or this FAKE address 67 Browns Ridge Rd, Ellijay GA 30540
4. Phone and fax numbers – (416) 482-5392 / Fax: (416) 482-4109 – also the same used by MAX Agency.

NOTE 108 With their fake CV scam busted, scammers are now resorting to other schemes to extort money from the translation community. This time, a "Emily Phillips" contacted translators impersonating a PM from a US company (APEX Translations Inc.), offering them a very lucrative position within the company. Catch: the real company does employ a real Emily Phillips and the scammers' emails bear all signs pointing to the real company (name, address, website). The email addresses used by the scammers are, of course, from Gmail...

Those who respond, are then lured further into the scam by a "recruiter" – Ameer Nassim, James Sanskrit or Jennifer White – who attaches to the emails a pack of files – Employment Information & Employment Agreement – all looking perfectly legitimate. But victims have to act fast and send the scammers $30.00 to secure their golden position...

Translators are directed to make their "registration" at these URLs (GA domain = GABON)
Your personal link to register is : apex-portal.ga/newregistration
You can login here : apex-portal.ga/


The original domain is: translatorjob.byethost11.com/ (Byethost11.com / cdn.byethost2.com/index.html / Byet Internet Services / All websites hosted show this URL format: xxxx.byethost11.com/ . The URL appears to have been disabled and showed crap like «Watch this FREE video below to learn how I am making 10 000 $ + per month translating documents and texts from my native language to English...» The same copy is found on translatefromhome.tk , also hosted by Byethost11.com ).

The ultimate URL is translatorswork.com with these registration data:

Registrant Name: S. YOO
Registrant Street: 1541-203, 394 SANG DONG
Registrant City: BUCHEON
Registrant State/Province: KYUNGKIDDO

Registrant Country: KR
Registrant Phone: 82 010 2782 1334
Registrant Email: FACIDO@GMAIL.COM

$89 payment required to view jobs displayed on translatorswork.com.

Too good to believe? Well, according to some reports on ProZ, some translators did!

NOTE 109 Another monumental "corporate" scam targeting translators: A "Q&A Research" company is contacting translators with an "employment offer" like this:

Title: Freelance Translator. Start date: ASAP.
Contract : Indefinite, unless either party decides to terminate employment.
Salary : $81,000 USD yearly or $38 per hour.
Pay terms : Friday of Every new Week.


For that, translators just have to move fast and to pay them $20.00 (EVERY MONTH), with their credit card.

===================
On 03 Jan 2016, a new scam was reported on ProZ:

Hypay / Hipay Media / HiPay – Digital Payments Experts / hipaymedia.com (WEBSITE DISABLED 04JAN2016)
HIPAY Panel / hipay mobile / hipaypanel.com (DOMAIN REGISTERED 24DEC2015) (WEBSITE ACTIVE AS OF 04JAN2016)

Registration data for these domains are the same as for qandaresearch.com (Julian Hatman), but, within a few hours, the registration data for hipaymedia.com was changed to:

Registrant Name: Emmie Cockie (FAKE NAME)
Registrant Street: 800 Avenue Road #456 (a Municipal Park...)
Registrant City: Toronto
Registrant State/Province: Ontario
Registrant Postal Code: L7N2K1
Registrant Country: CA
Registrant Phone: +1.4168859393 (belongs to a "Sean Purcell... or to a business...)
Registrant Email: esmeralda.tobey@gmail.com ("Esmeralda T" on Google profile)

Scammers are impersonating a genuine payment portal headquartered in France, HiPay, and offering translators a position:
«Translator Employment Offer – Hipay Media – The team and I have been impressed with your background and approach and would love to formally offer you a position as a Translator. Although we traditionally conduct interviews with our applicants prior to offering them a position within the company, your credentials have convinced us that you possess the right skill set to properly fulfill this position.»


HOW THE SCAM WORKS:
--------------------------------
1. Translators receive an email signed by Lucia Venucci or Samuel White with a link to a "formal letter" (filename: tr_offerletter.pdf).
2. From this "formal letter", translators are lured into another PDF link (Translator Agreement), filename: translatoragreement.pdf).
3. This translator agreement (14 pages) (CLICK TO SEE THE PHOTOS) is but a copy-and-pasted pack of lies, including the names of the purported "managers" of the "company":
SAM WHITE / Co-Founder and Portal Administrator / Photo is from Robert Laing, founder of Gengo and and bio note has ben copied from Apex Translations (Winfried Schlamadinger)
ELODY OKE / Portal Manager / Photo is from a hairstyling site (8th photo from the top) and bio note has ben copied from Apex Translations (Emily Philips)!
LUCIA VENUCCI / Office / Portal Manager / Photo is from Aisha Allee, Mauritius
4. And now, fro the final stage of the scam: «You will also have to install a refundable security deposit of 30$ for us to verify your identity.»THAT'S THE SCAM: you'll have to pay 30 USD to this gang!

IMPORTANT NOTE: On their Translators Agreeement, in an effort to confuse translators, ALL websites shown on the lower right corner of every page belong to their legitimate owner (a French company), EXCEPT hipaypanel.com, which was created and operated by the scammers. Funny: in this document, the addresses (page 4-5) belong to Gengo, Inc., and, hey, «Every office also holds an annual employee party in its respective city»

Info from ProZ: «Note that the page to make the payment includes a Realtranslatorjobs.com banner, a scam website that has been around for several years.» (See Note 107)

The address listed on their emails – 25 Taylor Street, San Francisco – belongs to a coworking office space firm.

NOTE 111 Another sleazy operation set up by a known translator impersonator: Kamal Ebrahim aka Kamal Abdelhafiz (see other names below). His career seems to be that of a translator impersonator and seller of SIM cards for mobile phones. Now, he started another "business": a translation bidding portal (i.e., a money-sucking scheme) under the name of "all translators of the world", based, of course on a also sleazy website, alltranslatorsoftheworld.com .

Website copy, as usual with scammers sites, has been copied from other websites: Translator HQ, TranslatorsCafe.com (YES!) and others. This scammer also keeps Facebook profiles: Kamal Ebrahim and All-translators-of-the-world (21,801 likes on 12OCT2015). Website contents is just a copy-and-paste operation of jobs posted online.

On his advertisement email, Abdel or Kamal writes crap like this: More than 50,000 translators of the world use our website (40% of the Arab region because our offices are in Cairo / Egypt and 60% from all the world). More than 12,000 agencies from all the world put their projects on our website.

NOTE 112 One more monumental scam from the same operators behind the infamous Real Translator Jobs / Real Writing Jobs scamming ring: IAPWE / International Association of Professional Writers & Editors / iapwe.org (created 29SEP2015; the owner of the domain uses a service to hide his identity). From their website "IAPWE Now Hiring Writers and Editors". AN ASSOCIATION IS HIRING?

Contacts provided on website / The real location is unknown:
255 Patroon Creek Blvd, Albany, NY 12206 (a residential complex) see cache of 06NOV2015; on Twitter, they're based in New York!
Now, 06JAN2016, the website says they're located here: 1732 1st Ave New York, NY 10128 (a UPS Store...)
Tel: (888) IAPWE-50 / (888) 427-9350 / Calls to this number are answered by a recorded message: «We currently have no staff to answer your call...»

On Craigslist, they claim: "We are now hiring writers and editors to work for our organization. Pay starts at $0.04 per word for writers and $.01 per word for editors." Also a sign of these scammers working in a network can be seen in this comment "I applied for an editing position awhile ago that I found from my school's job search page. I wasn't sure about it then but it didn't seem too sketchy, so I applied. I got the response yesterday from Mike Townsend saying they are full but IAPWE is hiring."

And yet, some people tend to believe anything: "Some people are always on the lookout for a scam. I’m not seeing a scam here but maybe that’s just me. I signed up, they said it’s free to look around and if you decide you want to keep accessing their job boards you can pay them one dollar per month [BY CREDIT CARD] after you’ve already looked at everything for free. Kind of a weird model but it doesn’t seem like a scam." – Good luck, sucker!

Twitter: @iapwe (on 17OCT2015: 40 following, 4,913 followers, NOT ONE TWEET) / They also operate dozens of fake Twitter accounts with fantastic names and fake photos OR ARE PAYING SOMEONE IN BANGLADESH TO REPLY TO OUR TWEETS (Note 118).

These scammers do not hesitate to use photos from real people, or just random photos, to make them (under different, fake, names, of course) their associates:

See Photo 1 ("Sandra Shoemaker" is, in fact, a librarian from Eastern University in Philadelphia, USA, and "Lindsay Malban" is, in fact, a US-based translator); after this translator complained about having her photo abusively used / same complaint here they removed it (See Photo 2 / or this tweet from the victim).

Then, on 17OCT2015, they decided to give all their ghosts NEW PHOTOS (See Photo 3). On 03NOV2015, ALL ghosts' photos and names were gone...

«We are no longer accepting new members at this time.» (AUG2016). Ah, what a shame!

NOTE 113 Linggo Pentadbiran (i.e., Lingo Administration) is a scamming and money-sucking operation based in Malaysia operated by Xamryi Rmlanz. Names used: LinggoWorld / Ling goWorld / LINGGO @ WORLD / Bahagian Pentadbiran, i.e., Administration Division (uses a photo belonging to Indonesian singer Asmirandah Zantma)

Domains/sites operated:
iklanperniagaan.com
klfx.blogspot.com (BoursaCourse, a money scamming operation)
linggo.co.nr
linggoworld.blogspot.com
linggoworld.co.nr

Their translation registration is very simple: «Step 1: Please make a deposit of $25» and their operation is also very clear: «We are also looking for international translator in any background to work online from home, with / without experience» And, to maximize their income, they ask you to "donate to help the orphans": «DONATE BELOW TO GET JOBS! LinggoWorld is organizing a program to sponsors orphans all over the world. Hundreds of orphans urgently need your help.» Poor orphans!!!

Of course, to lure suckers, they decorate their website with fake client testimonials, with also fake photos (this is one example).

This operation is used by known Palestinian scammers to publicize their job offers, like Roza Yasn & Doaa Ekrem.

NOTE 114 Arnold Matta is a ghost created by Fadi Saeed, also associated with a known Palestinian scamming outfit: Transharvest Agency (See Note 81).

Arnold's CV is but a copy and partial impersonation of Ségolène-Armelle-Marie Neilson (UK) with modified name, city, and (of course) email address, phone removed, and added parts from the CVs of Tony Walters (FR) and Kathryn J. Litherland (USA).

THE AMAZING SAGA OF INVOICES SENT BY "ARNOLD" FOR A BOGUS JOB SET UP BY A EUROPEAN COMPANY
1. Job entailed the translation of several HTML files. Needless to say, "Arnold" provided a Google translation...
2. "Arnold" sends his 1st invoice: payee requested is an unidentified PayPal address, nickmano.pay@gmail.com
3. "Arnold" is requested to provide "his" VAT number: «I don’t have VAT No.». He sends a 2nd invoice...
3. Challenged again, "Arnold" states «I have moved into Canada two years ago, there is no taxes here»: Invoice no. 3.
4. Our "Arnold" returns: «I was in a hospital the last two days, I was very sick but now I am better». Invoice no. 4, this time the payee is our well-known Saïd Lemonnier (See Note 0).

Of course, as a last resort, "Arnold" thinks, he comes with the usual threat scammers use when busted:
«Ok, I will share this issue with all translation sites, Proz, translation-directory and translators base, make sure if I didn't get my payment, your company will be put in black list.»

NOTE 118 On December, 2015, a 21-year old from Bangladesh, “Daniel Mohammad” (born 1994) (FULLY IDENTIFIED BELOW), initiated a libel and smear campaign against our Directory. Using FAKE email addresses and Twitter accounts (decorated with FAKE profile photos) he claims that we are requesting scammers 50 USD for keeping them off our Directory. In his campaign, he also identifies an individual, unrelated to the Translator Scammers Intelligence Group, as being also active, on our behalf, in requesting the same 50 USD “verification fee” to keep scammers off our Directory. Not having anything to do with translation, is this bastard just a maverick or was he paid to do that? We don’t know (YET), but if someone relied on his smearing abilities to hurt us, and was fool enough to pay for them, he/she must be already sorry, given the level of crap he came up with and the “quality” of the Twitter accounts he mobilized. You see, “Daniel”, if you want to be a whistleblower, your whistle must sound right, or the spell will turn against the sorcerer.

THIS IS A COMPLETE AND UTTER LIE! WE DO NOT GRANT IMMUNITY TO ANY CONFIRMED SCAMMER IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL ADVANTAGE. AND, BY THE WAY, WE ALSO DO NOT ACCEPT DONATIONS (AND QUITE A FEW HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY OFFERED BY SOME USERS OF OUR DIRECTORY), OR BRIBES.

At about the same date, THIS CRIMINAL ALSO STARTED CREATING FAKE TWITTER ACCOUNTS, or using accounts from their buddies, to respond to our tweets tagging/spamming our followers on Twitter with links to unidentified blogs, where the above copy is shown. ALL these accounts show NO bios, have NO connection with translation or translators, and, some of the owners have 4 followers and follow about 20 people or less, mostly pseudo celebrities, “sexy girls” or Twitter users located in the Philippines or Bangladesh, attracted for an unscrupulous fast buck.

Image 1: Scammer invites participants for his campaign against "Translator Scammers" and when you click the link:
Image 2: Scammer "explains" the campaign... «We need 1000 twitter accounts approx. You can contact with the twitter accounts that you have. You will need to do a simple task. Just reply the tweets, We will provide the tweets and full instructions. » And, money being involved (100-500 TK / 1.3-6.4 USD, for what?), who is footing the bill?

One of the copies used in this campaign goes like this: «Earlier this month I received an email from translator-scammers.com basically offering to get me “verified” as a freelancer so that they could determine that I am not a scammer. This verification process involved sending them $50 and when I refused (obviously), they explained to me that if I refused to pay this fee, that they would post my information on their translator-scammers website. As I said earlier, I cannot provide the specific email (WHY NOT?) I received from them as I am in an active lawsuit with them and the people behind the site are under active investigation.» — Since you refused to pay us ("obviously"), where is your name in our Directory?

Or like this: «I was also approached by the Translator Scammers Intelligence Group and was asked to pay them 50 dollars to get verified. I sent them a reply asking how this would benefit me and I received an automatic email explaining that this payment was to help keep me OFF of their list of scammers on their website.» — Again, where is your name in our Directory?

(1) FAKE Twitter accounts operated by the same scammer: Daniel Mohammad. Tweets (ALL with the same date: Jan 15, Jan 16 or Feb 9) are copied verbatim from other fake accounts (see the fake account from ghost Farzana Yeasmin) and some followed users are added to give the unwary viewer the impression of a “used” Twitter account! For example, from “her” fake account, Veronica Hibl (profile photo is from US Rep. Michele Bachmann), posted 95 tweets on Feb 9, all copied from other accounts kept by the same scammer! That’s the only tweets “she” posted, besides a couple of tweets spamming our followers.

See 3 examples of the exactly same "account" used in the campaign:
1. Twitter account from "Basma Kahin"
2. Twitter account from "Caroline Parks"
3. Twitter account from "Kayla Green"
(2) This clown Md. Leakat Ali / Md Leakat Ali Leku / lekubd@gmail.com / lekuctg@yahoo.com / bababazar@yahoo.com / leku.bd@hotmail.com tells us about his big problem online: «Assalamu aalaikum orahmatullahi obrakatuh, Hi...I am Md. Leakat ali by nick Leku from Chittagong Bangladfesh, taken pleasure to introduce my selp. About 4 months,I am trying to be a full time blogger to earn Halal/living from the comfort of my Home biz/jobs too. But poor in all respect, Know nothing about how to manage optimize traffic generation SEO and earn money from the blog. Actually I am a bit weak of low pressure and shocked and droped ......bath room ! Alhamdu lillah by the gace of allah nothing wrong.» Nuff said!
(3) This other clown, Yasir Ali / yasirali345@gmail.com, who has never translated one word in his life, tweeted this joke on December 25, 2015: «Loving all the tweets outting translator-scammers.com. I had a feeling I wasn't the only 1 u threatened.» On his profile on fiverr – itexpertarfa – he claims: «I have a strong work ethic». Like using the name of young IT expert Arfa Kareem, deceased in 2012, as your screen name or selling FAKE Instagram accounts (post on his G+ account): «Hi Guys,I will give you Instagram account with emails and pictures. Fully verified with phone for only $5. All account are created manually. Real name, full info, email confirmed and high quality accounts.»? And, no, he was never listed in our Directory! He's now!

This clown was lured into a 20,600 Euros "boobytrapped job" for the translation of 289 HTML files and a total of 357,877 words. Promised delivery in 17 days (17 days ???!! This means translating some 20,000 words per day...) And, about payment? «Can you please make the payment via PayPal as I faced some issues with my bank account now» Ah, the old problems of scammers with their bank accounts...

In this scambusting operation, the scamming and identity theft of an Italian translator and its connection to a Moroccan translation company (Linkingbridge S.A.R.L / thelinkingbridge.com / Domain created 02NOV2015) were also unveiled:

NOTE 123 1. Our attention was first attracted to this post on ProZ, where an "ALLIANCE of Applied Translators and Interpreters International" presents their "AATII’s Translation Contest: «We’ll soon announce one champion for each language — a prize of USD$1,000, which equals to $2 per word.» Really, a prize valued at a price per word? And «What’s more, the winner will be offered an “AAA” professional rating by AATII». The text to translate is but a marketing piece for their website, and participants in the contest are urged to promote the “contest” and the "Alliance" in social media... Of course, Lixin Cheng aka Clint Cheng, the owner of this outfit, was given a "AATII Professional Rating: AAA" by himself... And more: «Honorable Mentions will enjoy (…) Free professional assessment by AATII at a market price of USD$260!» So, their “assessment” will cost you USD$260? And «the tuition fee of AATII Training Program in Vancouver which is worth USD$450» There's also a "training program"?

2. Who is this "ALLIANCE"? aatii.COM / Domain created 09APR2015 (“Founded on September 9, 2015”, on Facebook)

Registrant Name: Lixin Cheng
Registrant Organization: Princemountain Transnational Services Inc.
Registrant Street: #300-5900 No. 3 Road
Registrant City: Richmond
Registrant State/Province: British Columbia
Registrant Postal Code: V6X 3P7
Registrant Country: CA
Registrant Phone: +1.6043702171
Registrant Email: cheng108@me.com

OK, it's just a publicity stunt for and from a Canadian translation company called "Princemountain Transnational Services Inc.". Their tweet account – @AATIICOM – makes it clear: «Our platform empowers businesses to communicate through multiple languages. We connect language freelancers with clients.» So, the "ALLIANCE" is now a business "platform"? Their website sheds some more light: «At aatii.com (officially aatii.com e-commerce, inc.), we provide access to qualified translators and interpreters. We started this platform from a concept brewed back in 2013 with our passion for helping people find translators and interpreters of any language, from anywhere on the globe.» Wow! We wonder why nobody thought of this before!

On LinkedIn, Clint Cheng "explains": «AATII.com is the first global marketplace that provides access to accredited translators and interpreters». Qualified? Accredited? And claims that «With 100,000+ professionals in our database already, our goal is to be the largest platform of its kind in the world». 100,000+ accredited professionals already? Seriously? On their Facebook, we can read this original line: «Translation and interpretation services at your fingertip». Original, indeed.

See how Lixin Cheng turned an "Associate Member" card number from the STIBC into a "Licence"!!!

Address: #300-5900 No.3 Road, Richmond BC Canada V6X3P7 / Tel: + 1 604 370 2171

LISTING OF TRANSLATORS & INTERPRETERS IN FALSE DATABASE
In a revolting case of identity theft and abuse, these scammers created a database of 20,000+ names (confirmed by a NETA member who called them up). The database also shows fabricated specialties and other professional information, and added a "rating" next to each name (1 to 3 stars, from "acceptable" to "excellent"). They also fabricated rates charged by each individual (funny: everyone is charging 8 cents a word). We are aware of the many outraged phone calls and emails made to the scammers. At 11:30 am (UTC) 15APR2016, names and false info are still posted on this "ALLIANCE" website.


See also how the defiant Lixin Cheng responded to a translator about his FRAUDULENT database.

3. Who is PTS / Princemountain Transnational Services Inc. ?

Registrant Name: Lixin Cheng
Registrant Organization: Princemountain Transnational Services Inc.
Registrant Street: #1706-7888 Saba Road
Registrant City: Richmond
Registrant Postal Code: V6Y 0A2
Registrant Country: CA
Registrant Email: cheng108@me.com

Address; #300-5900 No 3 Road, Richmond BC Canada V6X 3P7 / Tel: +(604) 370-2171 (i.e., the same as the "Alliance")

On their website, Lixin claims fantastic things, such as:
1. Google, vancouver. org (the City of Vancouver), bc.org (linking to an non-existant bc.ca) and Canada (linking to the official website of the Government of Canada) are Our Partners;
2. «...boasting ready access to a vast pool of 100,000+ accredited translators and interpreters». "Accredited" by whom?
3. In their "About US" page in Chinese (thank you, Google Translate), «the principal of the company is [among other things] president of the International Association of Applied Translation (aatii.org)» and that «company under the professional translation business platform in the world, registered more than 100,000 certified translators» Again, "certified" by whom? And, is Lixin talking about his "Aliance" or his "Association"?

OK, the "Alliance", the "platform" and "PTS" (a translation company) all have the same people. See the proof.

But, wait, there's more:

4. Enter another AATII, but now with a different name: ASSOCIATION of Applied Translators and Interpreters International / aatii.ORG / Domain created 20 OCT 2014 / Who are they?

Registrant Name: Lixin Cheng
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: 5900 No.3 Rd.
Registrant City: Richmond
Registrant State/Province: BC
Registrant Postal Code: V6X3P7
Registrant Country: CA
Registrant Phone: +1.7788587707
Registrant Email: cheng108@me.com

#300-5900 No. 3 Road, Richmond BC, V6X 3P7 / Tel: +1(604) 370 2171 (i.e., the same as the "Alliance" and PTS, the company)

Look, we now have the same people behind the "Alliance", the "platform", the company called "PTS" and now an "Association"!!!

They claim stuff like this:
«The Association of Applied Translators and Interpreters International (AATII) is an internationally recognized organization of translators and interpreters.» "Recognized" by whom?
«...we maintain the highest standards of quality, credibility, and ethical code. Thus the interests of customers that require services provided by our members are protected.» Poor "customers", if they believe this.
«AATII is incorporated as a not-for-profit association by the Government of Canada.» On Corporations Canada, we can see that AATII (Association) was indeed incorporated on 19JAN2015 (Corporation Number 917689-6, BC) as a NFP (Not-For-Profit).

Directors: Lixin Cheng and Nein Yin Chang (Minimum: 2, Maximum: 5) However, the bylaws stipulate that «The number of Directors shall be not less than three and not more than seven».

«The standards created by AATII are accepted around the world Again, "accepted" by whom? Like their info on "Translate Certification Courses" being only in Chinese? They also claim to have an "Accreditation Committee", also called "Membership and Accreditation Committee", with several names, including "Associate Members" of a reputed Translators Association in British Columbia, Canada. In the early hours of 20APR2016, one of its "members" published this on ProZ: «At no time did I agree to be a member of an Accreditation Committee.» A few hours later, the whole "Accreditation Committee" was "sacked" and removed from the "Lixin Cheng Association" website...

According to their bylaws, their voting members ("Accredited" and "Fellows") must be «a Canadian resident» and «The board of directors may delegate the administration of certification examinations to the board of directors of Princemountain Transnational Service Inc.» That’s some funny association! On TranslatorPub, this "confusion" between an "association" and a corporation is also very clear: the logo for the company is the logo for the “association". See more confusion here.

To impress the unwary visitor, they posted some logos of well-known and legitimate Translators Associations on their website with this heading: «Associations recognized by AATII»!!! [NOW REMOVED ONLINE]. Do these associations know about this "recognition" and the abusive use of their logos? As for their own logo (which is the same for the "Alliance", except for the first word) shows an interesting ALT description: "Translate.Co". Later, they dropped the "recognized" and started using "affiliated associations" and "Affiliated Society", without showing any...

Not surprisingly, 2 years after their domain registration they have no membership to show! And, there’s also no information about dues! That’s some very funny association!

UPDATE: Someone decided to get serious about this scam

Clint is also the "CEO" of another money-sucking outfit: Jooyee Network Inc. / jooyee.com / @jooyee_network / «Featuring crowd-sourced and funded translations by human and AI, we amass quality contents swiftly and share them at dramatically low costs among online communities distinguished by jurisdictions and languages. By charging reading fees instead of translation fees, Jooyee's business model reduces the cost to acquire the same information to less than 0.1% of regular translation price.»

NOTE 132 Enter another sleazy website in the translation world: LingoRate / lingorate.com / Ownership of the domain (created 09NOV2015) is not disclosed, and the website shows no physical address or phone. Physical hosting is based in Iceland.

Here's how LingoRate present itself: «LingoRate is the best place to rate translators you’ve worked with and to get the most trustable information and reviews of translators. Check what other customers said about the translators you’re going to work with and make the most well-grounded choice possible. You can claim your profile that was created by your customers (1) and provide everyone with your contact details, picture and other details that your potential customers would like to know. This is also a great way to promote your services to translation agencies and potential customers.»

(1) That's a lie: they just harvest data to create profiles as they please. Or just create FAKE profiles.

As of 31AUG2016, they claim to have:
Translators: 12,407
Translation agencies & customers: 9,463
Reviews: 16,962

Recently (June 2016) initiated a campaign like this: «Your LingoRate profile is ready to promote your services!», which means they create profiles without previous authorization and without, as they claim, the profile having been created by any "reviewer"!!!

They also announce the "Featured Translator": «The Featured Translator is set by our sophisticated reviewing system that calculates all your the reviews Like, for instance, "Anthony Jones" (a clear "Italian" medical translator, whose "Profile has been "verified" by LingoRate" and only found in their website...) rated by ghosts "Brooke Petersen" & "Chiara Bianchi". BTW, has "Anthony" "claimed" his profile? NO! Best place to rate translators and sophisticated system, indeed.

Let's retain these words: best place, most trustable, most well-grounded choice, great way to promote, and let's see what they have in the website:

A "Tim Keller" writes on Translators Café (joined 06JUN2016): Bad review in Lingorate - should I worry? Who is "Tim Keller"? A ghost living in "Los Angeles, 123456 !!!, United States" and this phone: 9749217 !!!. "Tim" was rated by a "Andy Hagen": «Working with Tim 3 or 4 times already (...) Highly recommended!» But ONE month later: «Tim worked for us as a freelance translator a couple of times (...) both times Tim didn't meet our deadline» See? 3 or 4 times and then a couple of times! "Most trustable", indeed.

This post on TC was also amplified on Twitter (all on 12JUN2016 and all with the same useless link) by these FAKE accounts (all of them share the very same posts):
@Aingekan7 / Elizabeth Pacheco
@Atting1995 / Dennis Atting
@Nottles1981 / Grady Morgan
@Propen98 / Margaret Sheperd (male photo???)
@Utualloutulmm / Brittany Dillon
Great way to promote, indeed.

Who is rater "Andy Hagen"? A ghost who claims that «the results of the campaign were not very good. After proofreading it was clear that the reason was poor translation quality, it was really too literal.» So, first they launch the campaign and only run the proofreading afterwards??? Well-grounded, indeed.

A "Lynn Driessen" writes on Translators Café: «I think all of us can use this lingorate to show the agencies how good we are.» "Lynn" claims to live in Amsterdam, 1012NX, Netherlands !!! with this FAKE phone +3120764358. BTW, the profile on TC (created 13JUN2016) is empty.

A "Adele Hass" writes on Translators Café: «Do your job well, establish good relations with your customer – and assessment sites like this lingorate would not be a problem for you.» Who is "Adele"? Lives in Vienna, 1001, Austria !!! and has this nice phone number: 385-112. BTW, the profile on TC (created 10JUN2016) is also empty. Most trustable, indeed.

Another ghost called "Vlad" rated a real UK company named DailyTranslate Ltd.: «Nice company to deal with, they translated my doc quickly for fair price». Only, this is a verbatim copy of a Google review issued a year ago by somebody else. Most trustable reviews, indeed.

«our customer is more than satisfied.» "Rating" line used verbatim by ghosts "Sophie Klein" & "Marlisa Koenigsmann" / Yes Translations. Line «really recommend this translator» used verbatim by "Marlisa Koenigsmann" & "Dorothy Schneider".

NOTE 133 An unwary US client sends a into-Maltese job to a Rudena Rukita / rudenarukita@gmail.com . "Rudena" is a fake "Zulu translator", based in South Africa (UpWork profle) or in Belgium (Translators Cafe profile, REMOVED). "Rudena" photo in UpWork (profile REMOVED) has been copied from here. Not knowing a word of Maltese, Rudena creates another ghost "Alexander Demago" and outsources the job to a real Maltese translator, whose email with the translation bounces back from demago.alexander@gmail.com ... Of course, the US client never heard anything about "Alexander". Further investigation, and a kind collaboration from one of our most faithful informants, led us to other FAKE profiles created by the same scammer.
