Strange Buyer Request

Today a buyer requested me to start working on one of his projects and also told me that he will place an order on Monday when he gets into his office.
:laughing: I mean wow! and really.


they will takeover their full project in this way!

Hi @imadali364,

NEVER start to work on a project unless the buyer FIRST places an order with you. Only then do the job and ALWAYS deliver through the Delivery of the order page, not through the chat or inbox attachment. Otherwise, you’ll be giving your work for free.


Yes, you are right…

Thank You @maitasun. Will keep these points in mind.

You’re welcome @imadali364. :smiley:

Always stay alert with this type of “smart” buyers. They’re always looking for a back door and a seller to open it for them. :wink:

Can’t give you a like right now (my bag is empty), so I’ll post it here. :heart:


Oh, Thank you so much @maitasun

It depends. See buyers profile. If they have good profile no problem to start. Many of my client order after I complete work.

So early in the day? You must have had a busy night!

The sad thing is, if this user is a scammer, they’ll still probably find a gullible newbie to scam eventually.

At least it wasn’t you. :slight_smile:


Yes, what can I say… :woozy_face: :sweat_smile:

And the good thing, @imadali364 has now less chance to be scammed this way. :slightly_smiling_face:


I already got my fair share before with a cancelled order. This is what we call experience :joy:

So true. I guess there’s nothing that can substitute scalding. :joy:

Once you’ve been burned, everytime you see a match, you run!!! :grimacing: :sweat_smile:
