Scammers using A2Z Global's name
A2Z Global advises that there has been an increase in fraudulent translators setting themselves up and posing as employees of our company. Some translation contractors are being requested by a scammer (or scammers) to do translation jobs under false pretenses. The scammers behind this scheme have copied our official company translator agreement and have been using it in attempts to have invoices for completed work billed to A2Z Global.
We then receive an invoice from a legitimate translator to pay an invoice that we know nothing about. We request to see the agreement. The scammer has copied an official A2Z Global Vendor Agreement and is using it to “buy” translations under our name. On that agreement the sender (scammer) has used an unofficial email address, such as one of the free services like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or Hotmail. We advise that any translator or agency check anyone sending you a job/purchase order from a non-company email address and find out why they are not using the company e-mail from a2zglobal.com.
Any e-mail sent by A2Z Global is always addressed using our company’s e-mail address, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org . E-mails sent from other addresses under our name, represent a fraudulent attempt to elicit a translation on behalf of A2Z Global. Translation companies (contractors) should NOT provide any translation nor follow any instructions from anyone not using our company email address.
