Fraud alert Sept. 2018

The ad is titled, "Editor needed for both content and copy of small guide/book approximately 6,240 words."

 

It says, The book is approximately 6240 words, 13 chapters and 13 pages." Then it says, "Please be prepared to do a short sample edit about 3 pages too."

--------

13 pages and looking for sample edits of more than 20% of the content? This person has no intention of hiring anyone; they're just looking for 4 people to give sample edits of 3 pages each! This ad should be taken down!

Plus, they dangle a $100 budget (for 6k words) to try to lure in unsuspecting freelancers...

Hi Bettye,

Thanks for reporting this. Can you send me a private message with the link of the job posting so we can investigate further? Thanks!
