I got this message from someone telling me,
We need one reliable freelancer from every mentioned countries. Our project is related to telecom operators. We should check that our app is working in these countries. Monthly payment is 50$. Please only bid if you live in one of these countries
Then he goes to tell me, the freelancer must buy a telephone and simcard, I asked why would I buy, he goes for the project, it is fishy and smells bad fish. Have you had such experience?
