The Proofreader's Parlour
A blog for editors, proofreaders and writers
Please read my colleague Nick Jones's recent blog post about a proofreader-targeted scam that's doing the rounds. Not only does Nick outline how this scam works (which may help you recognize whether you're being targeted); he also offers some excellent advice on how to protect yourself from these kinds of attacks. You can read the article here: The overpayment scam that targets proofreaders (Nick Jones on findaproofreader.com).
