Hi
I met a liar and potential scammer here a month ago on lead generation,

**Edited for community guidelines**

. After i submitted my proposal she messaged me and we had a training for the job. She later gave me a go ahead to do the work and share with her on her email everyday at 10am.

She then asks for my personal number; she shared hers with me on the messaging app. Later on she went silent; both on phone and messages. I asked her we should sign a contract; no response from her for three weeks. Today she messages me and tells me we agreed on commission, which is a lie. In any case no payment was received.She then says she doesn't want to work anymore and blocks me...☺️

I have all the messages saved on my phone on our conversations

Without a contract the client couldn't pay you even if she wanted to.

In future, don't start working until you've been hired.

Hi Christine,

 

That really sucks. As Petra said, no contract, no work in the future. Make sure the terms are spelled out in print in the form of a UW contract before you do anything. And you're right, commission is a no-go. 

 

Sorry you had to go through this. Better luck next time.
