Months ago a client accepted my bid for helping with mathematica software. I checked his portfolio. As a client he had a good reputation but I started to feel suspect about his portfolio of projects. He has completed projects related to Engineering, Mathematica, Data Science, Chemistry, Psychology and Nursery! I had to take the gig because at that time I needed it.
He was a difficult client from the start. Offering cheap projects, wanted to more work after a project was complete ( small details ), not paying on time, totally unaware of my area of expertise ( even unaware of all the projects in his own portfolio ), and he undervalued my work saying: "My work is easy and simple. Even I can do that. I send to you a video with it all solved". I don't want to come across this kind of client again.
My Question is: "What is it called when a freelancer merely finds clients with good paying projects and then uses outsourcing/crowdsourcing methods to find another freelancer to complete the work for less money? I think that is what this client is doing due to the really cheap projects he was offering.
I was thinking that the name was outsourcing, but there is no "scam" or cheap factor related to that inherently. Are there any phrases or definitions to define such a clients?
