And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. – Romans 12:2
I can’t get over how good God is. :-) Last year, I dealt with a scam issue…and I hope I never have to deal with something like that again. The new “client” seemed to offer an exciting possibility for a new project. He offered to pay me up front, showed me a website he wanted to replicate etc.
However, things seemed fishy when he wanted to pay me to pay another person to get the text content and logo for the new project. I bantered back and forth with him several times, but he still wanted me to pay this other person. He also didn’t ever talk to me over the phone, but texted me on my phone. God gave me a real sense of uneasiness about working on this project and I ultimately decided to stay away from getting more involved in the project. After turning down the job, I Googled the words “Joe Kelly scam” and found someone else with a very similar message to the one I got and confirming that this was indeed a scam.
Praise be to the Lord for protecting me from this web design scammer! To all the fellow web design Wichita Kansas people out there and to designers all over the world, beware if something looks too good to be true. It just might be.
