Re[2]: Jhone or Vlad Welson

Omar Salah Ibrahim Al-Balawi from Ammon, Jordan has been at it again...

He has changed his online identity from Jhone or Vlad Welson to Yellen Byrne:

Hi everyone

I am not sure if I am posting this in the right place, but thought I should at least give it a try to get the information out there.

My name is Kath and I am from livingword ( - we are a small agency in Northants, with an 0845 number.

We have had several reports of a 'Yellen Byrne' or 'Yellen Burne' placing work, or trying to place work, with freelance translators over the past two months. These reports are all from freelancers who we have not worked with before, so are unaware of our processes and don't know anyone here personally.

This person has somehow obtained our template Purchase Order with our full company details and is using this to place the work.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY WORK FROM YELLEN BYRNE or indeed anyone who you don't already know from livingword.

If you get any emails supposedly from livingword that you are unsure of, or if you are new to working with us and want to just check, then feel free give us a call on the 0845 number given and ask to speak to Kath so I can verify the job for you, or not, as the case may be.

I would advise that if the email address you are sent the request from is yahoo, or gmail or anywhere else that is clearly a freebie, then that is your first sign that something is not right.

If any of you are prolific on these forums (as I am not) then I would be grateful if you could pass this message on to as many of your translator colleagues and friends as possible to try to avoid anyone falling into this trap.

Thanks for your time, and fingers crossed that nobody else comes across this scam.

He is also registered with a fake name on this site. I know this since he responded to my exposure of him earlier this year.

Please warn your translator friends and colleagues.
