A Scamming client

Hi, everyone.


I want to report a client who 1. aks for contacts before starting the contract 2. misrepresents his identity

3. lies to lure you in by offering a possible full-time job 4. then he lies that the work is badly done (because he checked it on Grammarly 😉  and refuses to pay. 

Naturally, it was my fault to agree to take the job in the first place. But in the current market there are not so many choices.

I really would like a moderator to contact me, so I could present all the evidence.  **Edited for Community Guidelines**
