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!
Glad to see everyone is getting more adept at spotting these scams. I always ignore the obvious ones, but some start out normally. Then they always request something out of the ordinary. I always insist on there being no payment until I have met with a client. That pretty much eliminates all the scams.
