I received an inquiry this week from a man asking me to train his daughters while they are in town. Asked for prices, etc, and if I took credit cards. Replied with his requests, and now just got asked to over chard his card and make arrangements for Western Union delivery. Needless to say, I won’t be taking on this client, but wondering if anyone else has encountered this? Man also said he was hearing impaired and in hospital (reason for emails, requests, etc). Huge red flag!
Thanks everyone. Well, I should have trusted my initial instincts. Only really got as far as rates, and not account info was exchanged. When he sent that last request, I wrote and canceled my availability. And not nicely either. Haven’t had a response, so I hoping that’s it. I’ll be more cautious in the future.
