Scammer Alert - Designers Beware

Designers, web developers, creatives beware, there is a scammer trying to take advantage of us. If that nagging voice in the back of your head starts talking about "this is just too good to be true" listen to your gut! Check out this link: This has been going on for years now. I had no idea that Scammers were going to such lengths! This guy was "talking the talk"... "bells" did go off early, but it could have been a real project enquiry, with so much business being done over the internet because of COVID, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Lucky for me, the worst was that he wasted a chunk of my time.

My experience with the scammer started with a text to my phone. After several bells went off in my head, I googled the name he gave me (which by the way changed when he went to email - first bell) and the name of the company he said he represented, that is when I found the article (posted above in the text).... Please take time to Read the article and the comments left on it. You will see that this has been going on for years, and they are using several different cons.

By the way Mr. "I need a logo and Brochure for my furniture company", if you are reading this, you wasted YOUR time... I'm not falling for it.
