No, this is not ANOTHER post about sellers posting in the Buyer Requests section. This is something that annoys me even more than that. At least the sellers who post in there can be written off as either stupid or desperate. What really annoys me is the absolutely ridiculous requests that buyers post.
-15 x 500 word articles for $5
-15,000 words of German to English for $10
-Write an ebook on marketing/ecigarettes/real estate for $5 - must be at least 10,000 words
-I need a PROFESSIONAL, native speaking proofreader with a Master’s in English to proofread my 50,000 word book for $20. Must also do copy editing, format it for Kindle and write a 500 word synopsis. Do not apply if you can’t do it for this price.
It takes all of my strength to resist the temptation to send them a message…
How these people can even ask for these things is beyond me. Buyers, if you are someone who sends requests like this and you cannot afford to pay a price that is at least some way towards reasonable then I think you need to reassess what you are doing!
What are the worst requests you have seen?
