A real issue. 30% of jobs posted with no payments verified.

Kenny,

 

I got scammed by clients with 'verified payment' and paid by those without.

Learned my lesson the hard way,

Now, it's about getting the escrow funded before starting any job. If a client can't handle that, I'll just walk away.

Good approach. I use high-end filters, expert only relatively high minimum, and 30% of those are also unverified. My two worst clients were verified, my best two weren't.

A lot of them are new and honestly are trying to figure everything out. 
If they respond to my proposal and want to hire me, I walk them through it. Win-win.
