Commission Scam!


This scammer attempted to convince me to build them a website, and something felt off from the start. When I inquired further about their business, they only provided details about what they were looking for, avoiding any substantial information about the business itself.

Stay vigilant:

Scammers often employ tactics such as agreeing to make a payment and then withdrawing at the eleventh hour, or falsely asserting that they’ve settled the payment in full to avoid formal agreements. It’s crucial to remain steadfast in following your standard operational procedures and insist on securing an e-signed document agreement. This practice not only protects all parties involved but also assists in verifying the identity of the individual you’re dealing with. For added security, especially with individuals you haven’t met face-to-face, I strongly recommend incorporating trackable URLs for any initial links shared. This strategy enhances your ability to monitor engagement and authenticate interactions, ensuring a higher level of security in your transactions.
