A client named **Edited for Community Guidelines** posted a normal looking job for which I submit a proposal. But then he invited me on Slack where he made an unusual request that he would pay me for my sample work and then I will have to return the payment to him using Payoneer.
I have flagged his job and have obviously declined his offer.
