We would like to clarify the situation regarding a scam involving a fake website www.accent-on-languages.com, here are the facts and steps we have taken to resolve the situation:
-Earlier this week we were informed of a fake, fraudulent site located at www.accent-on-languages.com, a company stole logos and other information from our legitimate website, and contacted translators misrepresenting themselves as the real Accent on Languages. Some translators were contacted by firstname.lastname@example.org which is a fake address containing false information.
-Please take note the site “www.accent-on-languages.com” and the e-mail address “email@example.com” are fake and do not belong to Accent on Languages.
-In addition, a fake job opportunity was posted on Indeed.com by the same fake site www.accent-on-languages.com
-Yesterday, 1/14/2016, we reported the issue to the registrar of the domain “www.accent-on-languages.com”, the hosting company, ICANN, and Indeed.com, about the fraudulent activities from www.accent-on-languages.com and the fraudulent job posting.
-Today, 1/15/2016, Indeed.com removed the job posting, and the hosting company suspended the account for www.accent-on-languages.com, which should not be accessible anymore.
-If you have been contacted by Accent on Languages and you are in doubt, please contact our office in Berkeley, California, at +1-510-655-9470 to make sure the communication really came from us.
-We also invite you to visit our real website at www.accentonlanguages.com to learn more about our company.
Thank you and best regards.
