Another Asian scam
I believed that people were basically honest, then I came into contact with Asians and this concept got eroded quickly.
Not only do they have no idea how to ask about work; instead of making polite requests, they issue orders. They also have little integrity when it comes to paying for the work, as I found out again this week.
I applied for a job on Upwork; at the time I applied I didn't realise it was from an Asian or I wouldn't have applied. I make it my rule NEVER to work for them.
After reading the feedback on "said" client, my initial thoughts were strengthened. He has a rep for mistreating his writer, for not paying without a dispute claim from the writer and for being a scammer. We all get bad press once in a while - I have a bad note on my sheet - but when you have 25% of the reports telling you that you're no good, it looks bad.
