Beware of Scams like this

I'm not sure if there is a thread like this but I had to post.

People please be careful when dealing with these dummies.

Oh yes, most definitely, I have. Funny thing is... His account still seems to be open. I just wanted to put this here for others to watch out for messages like this.

Very interesting to read it. Unfortunately, this part of your post will be deleted soon by the moderators.

I would be happy if all the info about the criminal joboffers and all info about the bogus "clients", their alias-names etc. could be collected and made visible for everybody here but this will not happen.

I know right. I played in to his crap just to see what all he would say. Let's just say I eventually made him very angry. He didn't like what I had to say.

It amazes me how people actually do this and sometimes get away with it.

Well that's a big disappointment. I missed that thread. I think it should be publicly displayed for everyone to see. Why should people like this get a break?

Sasha, I am sorry you had to deal with a situation like that. I have checked and can confirm that actions have been taken against the client's account.

 

Thank you for reporting.
