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" / .

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)
SN DKR 2010 B 7408 (FAKE, OF COURSE)
NINEA 2511780 2 B 2 (FAKE, OF COURSE)

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 w/ 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, 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 w/ 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?

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.

A translator from the US: "I have received the translation file and vetted the author, and am confident the offer is legit." You are confident? Seriously?

Where do these people live? Wonderland?

Please refer to the accompanying CV for more detailed information regarding my abilities and skill sets.

NOTE 1 Scammer "Franck Gilles" posts his fake CV at and on ProZ (Franck Giles). Franck was a "Hostess (!!!) at the castle of Nogent-le-Rotrou" / CV author: "Claudine". The same CV has also been scammed as "Karcsi Ling" / on (address: 5, allée des Iles Marquises, 32100 Pessac, France, belonging to translator Monique Hamon) and as "Varan Geo" / (author: "Gevara"). "Karcsi" also keeps a profile in LInkedIn. On July 2015, Franck's CV emerged again under the name of Albert Vigier / / Scam by (Author): "saniora" / "besan" and later as Hannah Francis / / Scam by (Author): "acco" / Franck, Hannah & Albert Vigier "share" the same address: 105 Avenue de la Bourdonnais, 75007 Paris, FRANCE !!!

NOTE 2 Scammer Charles Azzopardi (quite a common name in Malta) publishes a LinkedIn profile from the UK and a ProZ profile from Malta, and, in both profiles, scammer uses the photo of Luke Macfarlane, a Canadian actor and musician.

Other known aliases: Adam / Adam Matthews / Adam de Pascal / Azzbroker / Crystal Sample / Frank Dacourt / John Brown / John Sutton / Paul Jones / Stephe(a)n Jones (and counting...)

Operates behind these façades: AZZ Translations Language Services, aka Translation Agency Europe (on Elance, they are located in Malta, and on LinkedIn, they are located in London, UK...) and Tecco Translations (now closed); also uses Mathieu Blanc as ghost identity for his scam. Copy used in AZZ Translations website has been plagiarized from TRAVOD International, Toptranslation GmbH, and other sources. GOOD NEWS: IS NOW closed (OCT2014)!

On this profile, Mathieu's address and phone number belong to The Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre (meanwhile, address has been removed, and, on 16JUL2013, the profile itself has been removed).

Also uses these email addresses:

This scammer is also on Twitter:
@AZZTranslations (on 22DEC2012, Charles announced the "hiring" of his ghost, Adam Matthews)

On one of his Elance profiles, Charles Azzopardi also uses the photo of Canadian artist Luke Macfarlane...
When confronted with this, scammer claimed that he had to protect himself from ID theft...
Scammer's phone number (Vodafone Malta): +35699465492
14OCT2014: According to a report sent to TSD by an Italian translator, "the Tribunal of Milan is already conducting an inquiry from my complaint".

NOTE 3 A monitor email address is a consolidating address to which all other addresses used by the scammers are linked, i.e., an address used by scammers to monitor all their email addresses: / Used by scammer Abeer Hams / Used by scammer Arwa Shaban / Used by Basel Khayat / christine b / Used by "Joao Pedro Bourbon" / Used by "Andreas Axel" / Used by "Carlos Gustavo" / monitor freelanc / Used by: "Elena Gelbert" & "Paula Abdol" / Used by scammer Yusuf Nasir / Used by scammer Yusuf Nasir / Used by "Antonietta Di Gianni" / Used by scammer Laila Mohammed aka Leila Mohamed / used for Alexandra Frederick / Alexandra Frederik Albert / Used by scammer Laila Mohammed aka Leila Mohamed / Used by: Speech Global / Used by "Andrew Alix" / Used by "Powerful Translations" / Used by "Ailne Barend" / Used by: PTS Company / Used by "Putra Yuda" / Translation Service / Used by "Thomas Keresturi" / Used by Ahmed Saleem Alqrinawi & Language Power / Used by Wordsvoice

NOTE 4 Fake profile(s) published online by Pakistani Khan Jee. ALL CVs posted on his blog are FAKE! This clown calls himself "affiliate of amazon", keeps these email accounts: /, a Skype profile: lalakhanjee (clothing business!!!), a phone: +923218006702, an alias: Wazir Khan (or is this his real name?), and a Twitter account: @thinkhired1. His address is at: HNo.10-9/3427-H, Arbab Ghulam Ali Road Killi, Deba Quetta Balochistan PAKISTAN-87300. Some of these fake CVs are also used by the Palestinian scamming ring Note 6. His response: "i created this blog for real jobseekers to post resumes, now how i can authenticate the reality of the resume? I am talking you with a very soft mouth, and you cannot understand this tongue so i think i will have to use my tight tongue." Recently (JAN2015), this clown is complaining online about being scammed by another scammer who didn't get him a job contract in Canada, as promised! And, his clothes business is going well: "We are selling all kind of cloths, ladies and Gents cloths. You can find on our shop shalwar kameez, shalwar kurta, pent shirts and every kind of Ladies verities available on very reasonable rates. This is my family business and i have excellent experience in cloth selling and in purchasing". It's amazing the crap translators have to put up with...

They also claim crap like this: "Our hubs across three continents allow us to operate 24/7". Hubs? Continents? They also include "testimonials" from ghosts like "Silvia Cipriani" (name used by Translation Secrets) and "Goncalo Alvarez Peixoto" (name found on a Portuguese University website). With scammers, anything goes...

On September 2017, these scammers started using to ciculate a unsigned email with this copy "At our Translation Agency We are a talented team of translators with native professionals, versed in many languages spoken worldwide", i.e., exactly the same crap they have on their website...

This phone number is also used by the scamming factory "Translation Secrets".

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 (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...

Or this brilliant crap named Challenger Business: One-Off Business Strategies Revealing Powerful Mindset of Earning Money and Building Business Empire (Profitable Business): It has an awful lot of images for further clarification and information. No shit?

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:
Ahmed Al Mughari / / Keeps a Facebook with this name: CrOuChzZzZ (El Nuevo Conquistador)

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 is associated to the "Huda Translation Center in Saudi Arabia". And, yes, Imad is also associated w/ the infamous (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)
Ph: +970598855968 (used also for Translation Secrets)

Ph: 0597601658 (in "Eman Tabasy" CV, as reference)
Ph: +970599851211 / (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 (same phone number as's, +972598855968), they claim that "We are not worried about money because anyway it comes"... Some correspondence from is signed under the name of Hanaa Kudaih (same name as a PM from another fishy Palestinian website: ) 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: are, of course, from Gaza, Palestine. They operate a GTalk account from . The Skype address given on resolves to someone based on Rafah, Gaza. Not surprisingly, a Wael Yousef (associated w/ Gentle Translations Group) also sends mail from turjoman.\

NOTE 8 Purity Translations / Purity Trans / Purity Tran / / (on Facebook, phWweb is owned by / 97259341499) from Rafah, Gaza! Another Palestinian scamming operation disguised as a "company".

Other hilarious claims on website/portals:
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!)

NOTE 19 Meet one of the most ridiculous scammers around. This Romanian national, hiding behind a not-Romanian name, John Bloomen (FAKE NAME), is the owner of Militaris Translation Agency (, NOW CLOSED (15JUN2013).

Translators profiles posted on his website were fake, e.g.: "Franz Schummer" stole the face of author Tristan Kink, "Giulio Lanco" is actor Mario Lopez, and the Arab "translator" is, in fact, an American music teacher... He was looking for clients (promising to pay 20 USD for each).

Other aliases and contacts used:

Address: str. Avram Iancu, bl. 333 , sc. I , ap. 12, 730000 Vaslui, Romania / Ph: +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" where he lists several translators (ALL FAKE). "Laura" requests contacts to !!!

Albert Selig / / / Switzerland / Name and address copied from here!!! / Phone +41-44-564 04 04 belongs to the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Zurich !!! / Fake CV also posted on TRADUGuide (albertselig)

Email: (see "LauraRobertson" before...) / Ph: (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
Wilhelm Schmidt (Germany): photo from here
David Evans (UK): photo from Richard Laxton (movie director)
Heinrich Schulz (Germany): photo from here
Alfred Johnson (UK): photo from Sting (yes, that Sting...)
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 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:

Giovanna Baggio
Mihai Tonescu
Pablo Cordoba
Victor Mitran
We have sent him this letter!
September 13, 2106 "Robert Frogost" emailed us from IP: (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."

NOTE 21 Scam operated by Imad Ali El-Mghary or Fatima Manla, associated w/ Translation Secrets / Languagemet. Also use these emails for the scamming of Eugene Samsonov / Eugene Samsonnov CV:
eugenesamsonov@yahoo.comm (Reham A. Ghali / Rere Ghali / Ghali Reham)

They use a PayPal account: . For financial matters, they use bank accounts at "The Housing Bank For Trade & Finance" (Jordan) or at the "Palestine Islamic Bank" (PS):

Account holder: Kamel M M Salama (see this report
Acount no.: 834 4052547
Bank name: Palestine Islamic Bank
Bank adress: Gaza, Palestine

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, a known spam harvester recognized by the Project Honey Pot.

NOTE 26 Owner of HM For Translation / . Ph: +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, , 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 / / Ph: +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 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, 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:

Mothertongue Translations
Herich Gunawan (Gladden)
All these IDs have been banned from ProZ. On 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: / and he's active in other portals (mainly in Far East region):

Emails from (at least): (PayPal ID) (Liu Yong Fu)

Ph: +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,, 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: (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 ( 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". Ph: +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 Hani Abu Sada (Facebook) aka Eng Hani Abu-Saada, owner of website (IP and other two websites (both inactive): and .

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 just for email purposes, e.g., . The registration data shows it all:
Registrant Name: hani abu se3da
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: Wheda st.
Registrant City: Gaza
Registrant State/Province: Gaza
Registrant Postal Code: 1221
Registrant Country: PS
Registrant Ph: +972599614356
Registrant Email:

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" Mexican phone number (+527771029404) belongs to a "Patricia Novelo"

On ProZ (Oscar.T.S), they are based in Andorra (now changed to Spain).
On Translation Directory, "Hannee Joseph" is based on a PO Box in Andorra and in Egypt and has an Egyptian phone number.
On, uses the name "Hannee Josef" and lives in France (!).
On Facebook (, of course, there is no names, and no location...
On Facebook ( they mention a domain / which does not exist, and no reference is made to oscar translation. Of course, no names or contacts are given.
On LinkedIn (profile now REMOVED), 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. / .
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".

On Facebook, he owns the page "Translation Tips" where we posts crap like this: "The freelance translation business has admirably flourished in Egypt, and is the cause of many Egyptian families success that were suffering from the hard economic situation after the recent revolution and excellent quality in the market due to spending long time on the internet, that pushed translators to the experience without fear."

Hani is also the owner of another Facebook page / TranslatorTube / in which he gives "advices" against scammers, even using some of our sentences. And, this scumbag befriended a French translator on FB (Alexis Braine), only to scam his CV using his own name and this email address: .

Eng-Hani Abu Saada / Hani Abu Sada / Eng Hani AY / HaniYouseph / /
Haneen Translation /
Haneen Yousef / Hannee Joseph / Haneen Translation / / /
Hany Abd El.Hamid /
Oscar Translation / / /

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

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 " (Dubai, Dubayy)". They also use a misspelled email address: . 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
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: .

These scammers also operate under the name "PM Translator" / , 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 are replied by Omar Issa /
And, of course, on their website they ask translators to send them their "CV and cover letter"...

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") /
Mr. Rafat
Yasser Abu Harb /

NOTE 51 Enter another scammer: Ahlam Zamli / / / 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:". 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 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...)

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. 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 originate in Gaza, Palestine (IP:
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.
About ProZ We are in the process of establishing the account.
In other words, this scammer "works" in a bank branch of Türkiye Is Bankasi:
Çobanoglu Zekibey Cad.
No: 2 35260 KONAK / IZMIR

The same bank address appears on the details (verbatim) of the bank account used by these scammers:

Email addresses associated w/ "GREAT Translate", aka "Great-translate" and "GT CO for translation services": (Jean Martin). Calls himself "Director of translation projects" in emails in which the wording has been copied verbatim from the website of Orange Translations!

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 – – 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" / replied: "This is one of my references for Aletta Morris."

Aletta provides a PayPal ID for payment: – 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 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:

Transhome Company / (domain registered in Gaza, yafasoft, on 29 DEC 2013)
WEBSITE NOW CLOSED (09MAR2014) / NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH Transhome Translation (Egypt)

Copy used in these websites has been copied from websites belonging to (China), PoliLingua (US) and other sources.

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
Ph: (203) 212-8874 (landline)

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

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

NOTE 65 Ferdi Dierickx / / 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: and . 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: (address also used by a "Magga Dora Ragnarsdottir"; is she Alexander?)

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 / / Skype: maggador (Edward Alexander SillyWalks, Buenos Aires, Argentina) / Ph: +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: (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 Ibrahim Blewi aka Omar Salah Ibrahim Al-Balawi from and (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 ( 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 / IS ON THE MAILING LIST OF TRAVOD (Note 73) and also appears on the website of LA Translation.
BonaVerba* (, now inactive) was located at a non-existent address in Turkey: “67 Sevegei Sk, Istanbul”.

Originally, the project managers were:
Caroline Wilsonn / / (see FAKE photo)
Helena Wisman / /

Messages from Caroline Wilsonn were originated from IP, 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 (
After unfavorable comments posted online, BonaVerba became LonaVerbas / . Most of website copy is plagiarized from “Lingo Compass” (Australia). They also use this URL: The domain has been registred by Baraa Kazzaz / / Ph: +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 alias for (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".

Anika Fikse / 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) / is also associated w/ another scamming joint, said to be based in Beirut, Lebanon or the UK: LingoEcho ( is NOW CLOSED) and the "company" has been banned from ProZ but their profile is still active.

Names associated w/ this outfit:

Ph: +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" / / (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!!!

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 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 AND 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.

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 / / . Domain was created on 09NOV2013 and it is owned by a "Ahmed Y. Lafi" (Gaza) / / +970599563934 / Twitter: @alafi88 / ProZ profile: 1860182 . (CLOSED, 07APR2014) / (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 (1860182) 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 (also used by Khalil Khatib, (Note 81) / 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:

IP: (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, jobrapido, Jooble,, trovit, UpWork.

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


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: Ph: 01914972344 (???) / Ph: 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 / 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!!!


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 Elkhair / 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 / / on 06DEC2016, they created the domain :

NOTE 94 Shimaa Aly / Shaima Aly (many other aliases, see below) is, probably, the greatest "translator" on Earth! 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 Translators Café, Shaima is also Nora Turner (Nora A. Turner) or Nora Shimaa (NOW REMOVED) and uses these emails: / / / . On this portal, "Nora" works at "dm,fnzsdlfkdanl" and her address is at "jksdfsakfjask, Cairo, dcf,mnsdfl 11291, Egypt". Her phone is +20103674943 and Fax: +202-344-2785 (Washington D.C., USA)

On her CV on ProZ Profile, Shimaa Aly (DELETED), she is "Egyptian / South African". On some websites, Shimaa is "I am American / Egyptian citizen" (it looks so more respectable...) or an "Egyptian Slovak citizen" or yet "a citizen of Egypt and Libya". 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 / . 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. TelePh: 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 95 Sandra Antonio (FAKE NAME) is a "Translation Project Coordinator" from a ghost "company" called "Multi Lingua". The copy used in her email has been copied verbatim from the online profile of Stranslations (UK) and job offers from Global Listings (UK). In their frenzy, these scammers write things like "Our reputation is second to none within the translation". No website, no physical address and no phone is certainly part of their "reputation"...

Recently (March 2015), this same Sandra is contacting victims with another story: she's from a Pro Trans / Multi Lingua & Pro Translation Team.

Lately, these scammers moved to "23 Bahar Street" to Dubai, UAE!!!

Website copy entirely plagiarized from other companies: Smartling (US), Connect Global (Italy), Orange Translations (US), Translationservices24 (UK), Alliance Business Solutions (US) and the well known scamming joint 24Translate (SAME pricing conditions, in which they state "The price is based on a rate per 1000 words of source text").

NOTE 99 Hans Rainer Biermann / Hans-Rainer Biermann / Wackenbergstr. 29, 13156 Berlin / Ph: +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: (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, where she also claims to own the domain . 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 /

About "her" Estonian company: OÜ A2Z / A2Z LTD – Translation Agency / A2Z Translations / / Registration number (Estonia): 12529311 / Address (virtual office): Partisani 6-33, Narva 21007, Estonia / Ph: +4901765182078 / +4917651820786 (German phone numbers?).

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). Or We are looking for a Project Manager to take care of translations projects in our agency (home based position) (in a Ukrainian portal).

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" / . 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 102 Another FAKE company, created by Palestinian scammers, also based in "Portugal": One Touch Translation / OTT / OTTranslation / OTT Zone / (domain registration data is, of course, hidden).

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...

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 (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: "". 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).

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".

NOTE 107 Real Translator Jobs / Real Translator Jobs Inc. / Real Translator Inc / RTJ / RT®J / / 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 / ) or this FAKE address 67 Browns Ridge Rd, Ellijay GA 30540

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 :

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..."

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.

Registrant Phone: +1.4168859393 (belongs to a "Sean Purcell... or to a business...)
Registrant Email: ("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."

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, 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 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.

Lucia Venucci keeps a profile in Translators Café (NOW REMOVED) with this data:

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, . Domain registration data:

Website copy, as usual with scammers sites, has been copied from other websites: Translator HQ, (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 / (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...)
Ph: (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 FACES AND PHOTOS (See Photo 3). On 03NOV2015, ALL ghosts' photos and names were gone... Of course, the explanation was: "The web designer did it and we knew nothing about it."

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

This gang also keeps creating ghosts with blogs to match their names in which they praise the high-paying jobs gotten through IAPWE. Here's one of them: Jason Royston / / exposed in this website. He states "I have been an entrepreneur for much of my life" (from the photo on his website – of coure, the domain registration data is private – he looks around 30, and gives us no info about his entrepreneurial accomplishments). But there's more: Jason's photo is also used by a Anthony Ollins (on LinkedIn), from a "wallstreet enterprises", which sells "designer fragrances all around the world". Final catch: Although Google caught his photo, Anthony no longer shows his photo on his LinkedIn.

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: (BoursaCourse, a money scamming operation)

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).

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,
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 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 Organization: Princemountain Transnational Services Inc.

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 (officially 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": " 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 / Ph: + 1 604 370 2171

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.

Address; #300-5900 No 3 Road, Richmond BC Canada V6X 3P7 / Ph: +(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), (linking to an non-existant 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 (" 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?

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

NOTE 132 Enter another sleazy website in the translation world: LingoRate / / 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".

The address in unknown, but a map on the Contacts page points to the British Museam, London (just like another scamming joint, Orca Translation, Note 84). Phones are also absent.

The website code has been stolen from Ecrivus International (NL), Affinity Language Services (US), Leginda (DE), and hilarious statements like: Best Translation24 is determined to be your first and best choice for a professional translation services company in Florida. We are London’s best translation company. Shamelessly, they also claim: Most of our language professionals are accredited by the American Translators Association. With scammers, anything goes.

An Egyptian translator has this to say about these scammers: "they very bad company they do not pay after finishing your work with them"

NOTE 143 The alarm went off on ProZ, when several translators reported having received an email from a "Steve Hall" with this fantastic announcement: "We have recently won a large project of 20.000.000 words which consists of documents on various domains, including...". The posting "company" did have a website, but with no physical address or phone number. Just a name: Trusted Spanish (contacts page with email and address have been removed). So, we went looking:

So, who is this Mohsen (b. 26MAR1994)? On Facebook, he lives in Whitby, Ontario. On LinkedIn, he's the "CEO at Trusted Language Solutions". On Twitter @MKhodadadi94 is a "Studying Chemical Engineering at Ryerson University". On TM-Town, he's called "trustedspanish" and is a "Spanish to English" translator. Not bad from a guy who, until 2012, lived in Tehran, Iran...

And, he has been busy. On (CLOSED 04SEP2017) he stated: "70 Million Words Translated and 60 Thousand Jobs Completed". But that's nothing compared to "Trusted Language Solutions": "870 Million Words Translated and 650 Thousand Jobs Completed" (from July 2017!!!). And all with a "99% Quality Rating" (whatever that means). Later, the "870 million words" were deleted, and replaced by "We have 14,000+ linguists for these languages (which ones?) and (...) we have a daily capacity of 1,000,000 words per day".

On Kickstarter, Mohsen also tried to raise CA$ 15,000 for "The Only Specialized, End-to-End Human Translation platform" with bullshit like this: "We're building the world's most awesome platform for ordering translations online—join us in our journey!" Well, the journey was curt short: he got CA$ 21.00!

Recently, also from ProZ, our Mohsen shot other "20.000.000 words" emails, this time from "Trusted Italian" and "Trusted Dutch". So we went looking some more "trusted companies":

Wagner Consulting are the owners and operators of .

On their website, the owner signs only "Wagner President Wagner Consulting LLC". Real smart move to hide his true identity: Sascha Wagner aka Alexander Sascha Wagner aka Sascha Moreno.

And, if they tell you something about "quality" and "ISO 17000", read this: "... a statement of conformity to the requirements of the international norm issued by the translator on his own responsiblity. This is not a certification by an independent third-party"

On the website, they claim: "Headquarter: London - UK" & "Location: New York, NY". On GALA website, they claim: "Wagner Consulting is a leading, reputed and a trusted translation service company" and Better Business Bureau gives them a A+ rating (but, "with NO reviews for this business"). A Google search seems to prove otherwise:
One example.
Another example.

NOTE 147 A Linda Jane, from Huntsville, Alabama, USA, she says, acts, since at least 2015, as the "stateside" point of contact for unwary translation clients, mainly those requesting Asian languages for Christian materials. She even has a website to show (but, of course, with no address and no phone number): Teams of Translators / . The website shows very interesting characters.

Kishan Singh (from India). Photo used in the site belongs to to Gautam Adani, one of richest men in India... The scammers didn't even changed the photo filename... Linda has nice words about "Kishan": "Helping Hands for Handicapped in Rajasthan, organized by our Brother Kishan Singh". And about Napoleon Zaki, "we are support xxxx Ministry, run by our Brother Napoleon Zaki"

Linda also has a "secretary" with a very funny name: Andrewson Chris. Photo used in the site belongs to Chris Coyier, a web designer and developer living in Milwaukee. Again, the scammers didn't even changed the photo filename...

As for the payment, Linda stated to a US prospective client: "We will accept the bank wiring in Pakistan the most needed area for now to build three orphanages and 5 widows houses." A Napolean Zaki, the "Final Beneficiary", will, no doubt, build the "3 orphanages and the 5 widows houses"!

NOTE 149 X-Translations (domain created 20 AUG 2018; registration data kept private). Not known for CV scamming practices, but everything in this "company" as been designed to hide their ownership, location, names and legal status. Who are their potential clients and translators dealing with?

Their luring email reads: "we used to work with in house linguists, but due to the increasing work from our clients we need to extend our linguists team and work with remote freelancer linguists". "We", who? "In house", where? To make their operation believable, they've also created a full array of profiles on social media and translators portals.

On their Facebook and website they claim "we are planning to be number 1 translation company in the next 5 years, that’s why we offer the highest quality with the lowest price". Really?

Although their documents available on the website have been carefuly sanitized, the "language" setting for the NDA (PDF) is "ar-EG" (Arabic, Egypt ?). Other sources also confirmed that "they" are located in Egypt, i.e., operating from just a website, with no traceability whatsoever. As for the names related to this operation:

1. Harry Michael (profile on ProZ: 2604824) / Sales Manager / / A fake name hiding behind a Polish background, including funny "degrees" from the Lodz University of Technology. In Translators Café, his profile is "private"...
2. Mark Eliot (another fake name) / VM Manager / / Ph: 93965461 !!!

NOTE 152 Meet Amer Al-Azem, aka Amer Al Azem, aka Amer M. Al Azem, aka Amer Al-Azm, aka Lana Al Azem, an obnoxious spammer and scammer from Palestine: one day he sells real estate and coconut oil and the next he sells translation courses in the Arab world. Here is some info about this clown:

His trick is to create Groups online, abusively add victims and spam them with all sorts of B/S, like "Translation Agencies", a group on Google which has been BANNED.

On his "Amer Al Azem Trade & Marketing Group" / , he claims "Amer is a man of principles and ethics" LOL
On this website, one reads "The Holding AAA Group is registered in Sao Paulo"!!!

More info about the operation of this scammer here. Another of his practices is to spam translators and translation companies, registering them as subscribers in his Google groups (we keep an extensive list of such emails, that we can send to bona fide interested parties).

On the translation side, this clown claims to be:

Amer Al Azem is the founder & ex-president of World Arab Translators Association (WATA), translator, trainer, and author of three books on Grammar and Legal Translation, and a business global marketer.

He is the Founder of Arab Trainers Union. He also contributed to the establishment of translation societies in Egypt, Jordan, Yemen and Morocco. He is known worldwide.

Owns commercial, professional and media networks covering a million companies and people

Also claims to have written books like "The Translator in the First Trench" and "What is new in the Grammar of English". The only problem is that these books do not exist. Also makes another funny promise: "Professional translator diploma soon with international accreditation" and (are you ready?? "International Certificate from an American-British-French foundation"...

On January 9, 2019, Amer gladly posted on his Facebook / Amer Al Azem International / A.AlAzemTrans a message from a a clear OVERPAYMENT SCAM. When a gullible (and stupid) tanslator showed his interest "I am interested in the project which you posted", Amer, The Scumbag, responded "No agreement with the client so far".

On April 2022, Amer came up with some new crap: Nominations open to honor Missionaries to Glory for 2022: The Arab Translators Association is pleased to announce the beginning of nominations for Outstanding Knowledgeables, Translators, Linguists, Academics, Researchers, Presidents, Rectors, CEO's, Teachers, Headmasters, Educators, Principals, Scholars, Personalities, Writers, Thinkers, Activists, Creators, Journalists, and professionals in all professions and disciplines.

NOTE 153 AB Translations / AB Translations SRL is a fake company set up by unidentified scammers. All about this "company" is blatantly fake, and yet there are reports of translators having fallen victims for this scam. Come on, guys!

1. Domain was created on 26MAR2018. .cc (Cocos Islands) used for Iceland!
2. The website claims "founded in 2008 and headquartered in Reykjavik, Iceland". Really?
3. Address Háaleitisbraut 68, 103 Reykjavík, Iceland is a restaurent or a power company...
4. Phone number (+354) 515909. Really?
5. VAT (FAKE): IS006219

This scam is an impersonation of a Romanian company called AB LANGUAGE SOLUTIONS SRL.

NOTE 154 The Translation Community keeps being plagued by shady and unscrupulous operators. An Internet domain is anonymously created, a website with plagiarized copy goes live, a profile is opened at Translator Portals using VPNs, a fake street (or no address at all) is provided together with a phone number (also fake), and a new scammer is in business. Here are some more examples:
Beltic Solutions / (NOW CLOSED, MARCH 2019) is a FAKE company and notorious non-payer. Domain was created on 18DEC2017 and registration owner is UNKNOWN. Phone is FAKE: +420749855114 (UNKNOWN) and so is the street address: Havlíckova 1227/4, 110 00 Nové Mesto, Tchéquie (!!!).

They probably use a VPN to place them in Morocco. Data collected from jobs posted on Translation Directory:
04JAN2018: Fiala Dvorák (IP:, Morocco)
10JAN2018: Fiaba (IP:, Morocco)
19DEC2017: Fiaba (IP:, Morocco)

Of course, copy in their website is just stolen: "‘Late’ is not a London Translations word." Yes, stolen from the website of "London Translations". They also claim stuff like "We have more than 30 years experience (elsewhere in the website is 13...) and our ISO 9001:2008 certification reflects our commitment to high quality translation." Really? And in June 2018, their blog entries (all with crappy copy) are dated 26 October 2018 !!!

Victims of this scam are already speaking out.

NOTE 155 Some scammer from Gaza (identified as nmc2016 & AL-FARIS & walaa mahmoud in docs), calling himself Top Translators circulated the following message from the address (how nice!):

NOTE 156 Vanda Mark (FAKE NAME) / is the typical scammer busted by "her" own stupidity:

Vanda is hastily hired by a UK company and apparently delivers her translation. From then on, she keeps insisting to get paid. However the company uses a third-party translation platform that requires a positive proof of ID, to which Vanda responds by sending a ridiculously doctored German ID Card / The original image can be found here. Asked for clarification, the scammer replies:

— I have said that by mistake. (sic)

And before, what did the scammer say about getting paid? This:

— I told you that I can not receive bank transfer and I will provide you my friend bank account to pay to him. I send you my friend bank information that but you do not pay until now. For Documents : You told me that you must provide my documents and I put my Passport and Tax paper.

Yes, the "passport" is the doctored German ID Card... And then came the old "pay my friend" trick again, because "I can not receive bank transfer". Let's see who the "friend" is:

Account Number: 2698441
Swift Code: MHCBJPJT
Bank Name: Mizuho Bank LTD.
Branch: Yokohama Ekimae Branch
Bank Address: 1-2-1 Kitaswaiwai Nishi-ku Yakohama Kanagawaa
Country: Japan

And, finally, as a true scammer, Vanda PULLS the threat trick:

— You must pay me for the job I have done for you. If I did not get my payment, I will put your name in all sites in the Internet that you have stolen my money.

And now, for the fun part. How do we know all this? Because "Vanda" in her own stupidity sent her "threat" to someone who happily forwarded to us the whole thread of messages between her and the UK company. Stupid scammer!

NOTE 157 Usako International / / (free email server) is a Turkish scamming gang hiding behind fake websites with no registration data to stiff translators with a cryptocurrency mining scam. They operate a website in which they claim: Usako international is a Turkey based company which deals many cryptocurrencies and also translation. We try at all possible best to always keep our customer comfortable with our services. We produce better services to all our clients around the world.

Address (copied online): Cankaya CD. No:14 Ankara Turkey / Tel: +908503902273

Their "team" and testimonials all use FAKE names and the photos were farmed from websites online:

Eden Raul / CEO and Founder
Attila Maggie / CFO and Head of Sales
Mattias Pacas / CTO and Lead Developer
Jake Stillwater / CMO and Head of Design
Ali Muhammed / Human resources departmental Head
Miss Shazia Rosella / Financial secretary and accountant

FAKE testimonials by (all FAKE names): Alicia Becky / Levites Patrick / Zaki Shazia

Then, after they receive the translations from their victims, they claim not being able to pay through normal channels because of "problems with Paypal in Turkey at the moment", requiring their victims to download an app called Green Pay Gobal integrator from Google Play. According to some reports, the app cost around $400.00.

The website for Green Pay Global / is just another joke: the email is (!!!), the address is 1 Website Lane, Suite 1000 Boston, MA 11111 (!!!) and the phone is +1 123 456 7890 (!!!). FAKE testimonials by (all FAKE names): Mark, , Samantha, Zoey (photos were just copied online). Trustful, indeed...

NOTE 160 On November 23, 2020, a Turkish translator reported on ProZ:

"Fake company “Free Works” finds you from freelancer platforms, says that recruits translators, makes a test and give you some work, but says that it will be paid only over pay-secured again fake payment platform, Pay Secured due to restrictions in Belarus. You work for a week and earn 2500 $, however, in order to receive your payment you need to upgrade your wallet on Pay-secured and this is 100 $. If you think I can pay 100$ to take the 2500$ you are mistaken and also you provide your credit card information, which may cause you a bigger loss. When you refuse to pay this amount and ask for other payment methods, they don’t contact you again and disappear."

So, we went on looking, and we found some interesting stuff:

1. Free Works / / / (Gregory K.) / Domain created: 28JUL2020 / Phone: +375 (1773) 9-52-34 / WhatsApp: +30 21 1198 4493 (country code: Greece?) / Skype: cid.a49900a317def7ec / Address: Radoshkovichi / Tarashkevicha, bld. 18, appt. 1, Molodechno, Minskaya oblast

Website copy has been copied from various other sites, including Better Languages (UK)

They claim to have: 16800+ Completed Works / 11000+ Happy clients / 10+ Language Translated and 150+ Online Staffs !!!

People shown on the website, probably with fake names:
Aleksej Barys MBA DMS BA (Econ.) / Ceo-Founder / See this photo of Aleksej and compare it another photo of Aleksej of Pageworks below
Ksenia Aleksej / Director. Now, go see how Ksenia looks and it's caled on the "Creative Team" section of the website: yes, she's called "Beatrix Hunter"... And now, go see how "Ksenia Aleksej" looks as "Aleksej Ksenia" on Pageworks website below.
Beatriz Hunter MA, MCIL / Translation Services and Finance Director
Manir Khan / Head of Human resources
Tanja Vasquez / Marketing & QA

Scary note: see that "MBA DMS BA (Econ.)" after Aleksej? It's exactly the same from Mike Hunter, from Better Languages, from whom Barys copied the entire bio note. And another scary note: see "Beatriz Hunter MA, MCIL"? It´s exactly the same name and titles of Beatriz Hunter, from Better Languages.

Address: 95 Cranleigh Road, Bournemouth, BH6 5JX (copied online, a residential house). NO PHONE IS PROVIDED.

The scam explained:
We currently have a huge project at hand, hence we are seeking for narrators from English to different languages to work with as we want our scripts to be narrated in as many languages as possible. We pay our narrators 500USD per finished hour for a script. To qualify for the offer you'd have to pass the online audition where you'd be given a 1 minute script to narrate.

Then they send the victims a Contract Letter to say they have sent all of the (extremely expensive) equipment listed in the Contract Letter and the monstrous amount of money, so then they can say the victim should send it back (for any reason they would probably think of).
