A lot of identity theft cases are hitting the industry these days. In many of these scams the victims’ CVs/résumés are stolen by the scammers, who then use the information for their own criminal purposes. There are several basic categories of scams:
- The scammer impersonates the client/buyer.
- The scammer impersonates the language services provider.
- The scammer orders a translation from a translator but never pays.
