This has happened with me multiple times that I got from some unknown person who gives reference from my known indirect contacts..
And start directly putting his/her needs that I want so and so thing to be done, can you please start doing it now or as soon as possible without even asking me about I would like to work or what they would pay me to get work done or working terms..
Even when I ask for payment they say,
oh we can even pay you if you want to get paid for that work
We were just thinking if you can help us out on phone itself
which means I will get nothing - Is there any chance of earning here as I am not aware how to act in such case?
I am totally surprised by such approaches of people asking me to help them without anything for me to earn in return.
- How should I handle such things into benefit of own and they getting want they want?
- How cash in where people ask for help over phone only?
- Sometimes people say they will pay after they get payment from their prospects and never return to pay, So is there any secure way to get paid with such?
