SCAMMER ALERT: Global Translated Network / Global Translated Net / Globaltn               [Reply to this message]
Sender: Yoko Yoshe (Global Translated Network) 06-01-2019 02:54

Dear colleagues, I'm posting this to warn you about a TD corporate member who is really a scammer. I've informed this site, providing more than enough evidence for them to delete their account, but no action has been taken and the profile can still be seen in their corporate member's list. This means they still have access to all of us, and can send massive mails to recruit translators to work for them (and not pay for their services). They easily contact translators through this site, providing a Proz profile to generate trust (that won't work anymore since they have recently been banned there due to non-payment reports). In 2017 the CEO "Yuki Yasahiro" was the one sending those mails, during 2018 the name was changed to Senior Project Manager "Yoko Yoshe" (allegedly fired due to fake invoices from her translation teams...), who posted jobs and also sent mails to TD translators (Check jobs 43804, 43684 and 00037725 still in this site - unless deleted, but I have the screenshots). What they do is to (maybe) pay you the first time (if you didn't do a lot) and then send you a lot of work - then give you a really far-fetched excuse to say the following payment will be delayed (buying time to go dark for a while), and after that, when the postponed payment date arrives, and no payment has been received, they simply do not answer back the only working mail they keep (all other mail addresses bounce back, even those listed in their website). Invoice department mails were signed by "Thomas Hough", but had the same linguistic features as the mails from "Yoko".
As I said, I sent Translation Directory enough evidence to do something to protect the translators in this site (and their own reputation as well), but apparently "payment" rules above morality (or legality). It is taking them too long to react, other sites have reacted immediately upon receiving the communication.
Paying freelance translators should demand action from TD, not only are they paying for a lax service, but they are also put at risk because of this. This company is not in the blacklist TD sells, and a person who checks it and accepts confidently jobs from them could easily sue TD for accessory to fraud. Besides, what is a scammer doing in the corporate members list? Simply check other translation sites!
Shame on TD!

Thank you! I received a mail from them some months ago, I did not answer at the time because I was not well and saved it to contact them later. Not good for the site.

When checking a profile at Proz, don't just rely on the profile they send you (the one with the number), always check the Blueboard info (even if you aren't a paying member you can still see the LWA rates given by other translators, 1 being the worst, 5 the best).

Compare: www.proz.com/profile/2323079

And the Blueboard: https://www.proz.com/blueboard/51464

From the profile they send you, click on Blueboard!!!! ;)

Much quicker and effective than looking through endless forums!!!

I thought I was alone in this situation. Actually, I did the first job (USD 35) and they paid me without any trouble. For the second job (USD 1124) they said there were many fake invoices from Yoko Yoshe and pleaded with me to wait until 24 December to get paid instead of 24 November. However, I have not received a single cent from them and they ignore my messages.
Wave Linga-r never responding after submitting Arabic<English translation               [Reply to this message]
Sender: Amani W (Wave Linga) 26-02-2019 15:39

Hi to all,
Please be aware of Wave Linga as they are not replying any more after submitting an Arabic<English 6422 source words over 9 days ago!!
After submission, they are never replying at all. I have e-mailed them so many times, for over 9 days now, without one single reply.
Also, if you go to their website, you can never submit a quote for example.
They have no presence on LinkedIn as well.
Their website is not fully functional.
So, just wanted to make my colleagues here fully aware of them.
Good luck to all.
Sincerely,
Amani W

of course I did, so many times, and translators directory knows about it now and they should have known as well that I did get translation directory CEO into it, but nevertheless, not a single move from their side. Just be aware from them please until they get blacklisted in here. Attached was their ad in here and the trap to get it all for free.

Hello,

I had the same issue with this agency. Please be advised that they are scammers. Luckily, I contacted a freelance rights agency in Europe and they tracked their emails. They are based in Kansas, US. The FBI might get involved for cyber fraud if the payment does not take place in the next two work days. I will keep you updated.
Best regards

Hello Digoure
Thank you very much indeed. I hope we get our rights back from this scammer.
Thanks indeed.
Please keep me posted with many thanks.
Can you please write back the freelance rights agency in Europe so I can send to them about him as well please?
Many thanks.

Hi
Unfortunately, I was also decieved by WaveLinga. I have submitted an Arabic English project, and they never respond to my emails. THey owe me EUR 446.
To all other translators who were victims of this fake company, If there is anything to be done please inform me by replying to this comment, because I have contacted an agency in Germany to request my money, but they said that everything was fake, their adress, and phone.

Hello,

I was also a victim of this scam and of course, I'm interested in any outcome there may be for this case. Hopefully, at some point I might also receive compensation, because on paper they owe me 650 euros, with a written confirmation of their order from an @wavelinga address.

Hello
I’m not optimistic at all that they will do any payments to any one of us. They awe me
£380 and I also have a confirmed written order.
I left translation directory in fact because, although I submitted all evidence
Of their scamming procedures, they said they will blacklist them after a few months!!

I had the same experience with Wave Lingua, supposedly someone named "Friedrich" in Berlin. Really, I think the contact person used a fake name, fake address, and fake phone number. I did a long editing project, which someone else had translated from Arabic to English before I got it. Then . . . nothing. I noticed that the website had been taken down; the phone call did not go through, etc.

I almost didn't report this because I was stupid enough to trust Wave Lingua because the job had come through Translation Directory. My take on it now is that (a) I will be extremely careful who I deal with from now on; and (b) I am leaving Translation Directory, which apparently has a history of facilitating questionable transactions.

I'm sorry for what you have been through as much as I'm sorry for myself.
I already left Translation Directory, and from now on, any project should be thoroughly assessed from where it is coming, checking all data and giving them a call as well.

Hi,
Yes, they got me too. My better judgment told me I shouldn't have gone through with it as they refused to accept my own terms and conditions. It was all agreed by e-mail and they now owe me €513.00 for a 5,000+ word translation from French to English. I have an e-mail record of the transaction, their order and agreement to pay within 10 days of receipt of my invoice. I will be keeping an eye on the outcome of this case. Please do not work for them. Lucy Gay

Dear Sir,

I am one of the victims of this scam. They sent me many EN-JA projects. The first month, they made payment on time for me (>800$). However, the second month, they took the excuse that some translators had sent fake invoices to them to delay payment to me (>500$). Unfortunately, I believed this :(.

Until now I still have not received payment from them. I emailed to all of the email address on their website but only received error emails. Invoice@globaltranslatednet.com is the only email still active but I did not receive any responses from it.

Are there any ways to help me get my payment?

Please give me advice. :(

Many thanks.
