I am new in the platform. I have sent several proposal and I just received a positive interview. However the client doesn't have payment confirmation and it seems is member just this week. I already translated a document for them and they already send me another document for translate but on my profile I do not have active jobs. Only proposals. How do I know this is an effective job in process?
Thanks a ton for your help, I'm trying to familiarize with the platform.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If it isn't listed under "My Jobs', you don't have a job. You are being scammed into working for free. Don't do anything else for this "client" until and unless they send a job offer and you accept and they're payment is verified.
You will find that real customers will pay you for 1 milestone and if they like you, they will continue. If it doesn't work out, no hard feelings. You both move on.
He's scamming you.
I fell for this way wayy back when I was a wee noob. The ol' "Can you do 1 for me to see if you're the right fit." Then, came back and asked for another.
These people are trash. Only do paid tests.
This guy contacted me again by message saying that I need to check the document I sent to him because he marked some comments for me. I told him that I should not release any work until it is funded.Ant that was he answered to me:
HAVE TO RELEASE PAYMENT IN ORDER TO APPEAR THERE!
How to pay something that is not done properly.
Revise the translation, and will send payment after I get the CORRECT TRANSLATION!
His profile looks empty, not photo, no information at all and nothing. I already flag him and blocked. How this kind of people can do this?
Because I got a lot of free time on my hands, I'd probably take the PDF and like scramble it to make it really bad and then send it back with a note that you followed his directions.
