Stop... and trust your gut!
This last week I was contacted by scammers—twice!—with a highly detailed scam aimed at Web Designers. The first time, I had no idea it was a scam. It just seemed.... off. After many back & forth emails about a job they wanted me to do, I finally, and firmly, said ‘No. This is not going to work for me.’ They acted hurt and desperate, because they NEEDED this site built! And was willing to pay... a lot! But, no. Something was wrong, I just didn’t know what.
This morning: another email with another project offer, using the exact wording, except changing the name and business. I did some googling and found that this was a known scam aimed at Web Designers. I was proud of myself for shutting down the first one early.
At least ModernFox is showing up in some sort of Google search, right? ✨ #beware #selfemployment #entrepreneurlife #designers #webdesigners #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneur #webdeveloper #selfemployed #blackhumor
