I have a potential client that messaged me today. We had some back and forth about what I offer, what she needed, etc. standard stuff. But then she hit me with this message:
“Ok. I will be picking up my banking card within the next two days. My country is still in the pandemic. If I provide you with my manuscript and goals for this project, are you willing to start and receive payment shortly thereafter?”
Which instinct tells me that it’s a scam and that I should run, but I guess because I’m newer, I’m not sure. Has anyone else experienced similar? Are my instincts correct?
Thanks for your help/advice.
