I need your help, because I don’t know if I’m being scammed. The story is the following…
About a month ago, I got a message in my inbox of someone o was willing to pay me 60 USD to do the tasks similar to one of my premium gigs (where I charge about 35 USD).
I got excited, because the payment was bigger, even tho the amount of work was larger and involved more details (I do 3D modeling btw).
The person in question takes about 2 or 3 weeks to respond to my messages, even tho he is online sometimes (witch I’m not judging, just pointing it out, because it might be an important detail). So as you can see, we haven’t exchanged many messages.
Anyways, he was interested in my work and basically was evaluating if I could do the task that he needed. I sent him a mini version of my portfolio and he got very pleased.
Today, he sent me a file with some incorrections that he wanted me to fix, in a way to test me. My problem, is that this “test” is very similar to the end product that he wants and he basically is asking me to send the resolution of this test via email, or share whit him via the software that I use to create the 3D models.
My problem with this, is that the person is basically asking me to do free work for him in the form of this “test” and I don’t have reassurance if he will take my gig, or pay anything at all.
What can I do?
What is the best way to approach this situation?
Thank you all for having the patience tho read this and trying to help me
PS: the person has already purchased 3 gigs before contacting me, all reviews with 5 stars.
