What should be things need to consider before hiring free lancer? Someone tried to scam me on skype..
My opinion- I think lot of korean/japanese fake profiles (thats just my opinion). They are amateur developers but writing wrong biodata of having more than 10 years to get 50 dollars/hour.
My learnings from the experience
1.Never tell the exact place where you live?
2.never give money upfront
3,first thing they will do to talk you in skype
4.make all your information on skype private. /no photo/no personal information
5.Check their skype id ..fake ids has no information about them
6.Google their name. I fu see same Matching profile on upwork or no search result. Big red flag
7. Will accept your contract at fixed said price and then will tell you that cannot be done on that price and ask you to increase the price 4 to 5 fold.
8. Ask the freelancer about their linked in or any other profile other than upwork where they work.
