I haven’t posted on my blog in a while, and I wanted to start off fresh with a post to help out my fellow designers. Recently, I was contacted by a “Charles Kaiton” requesting a quote for a web design. He was very specific on what he wanted and how much he was going to pay for the services. Charles Kaiton is a fake. He belongs to a company that filters through any online ad posted for services offered, and tries to get people to illegally move large amounts of money out of the country. The concept might not be new, but targeting web designers was new to me, so I am spreading the word. Tons of other people have run into the same issue. You can read more about their stories here: http://www.helloari.com/blog/2015/03/scam-alert-web-designers-targeted-hearing-impaired-wants-agroamerica-site/. So, if you are trying to get your name out using online ads, like Craigslist, please be aware of scammers like this company. Most of all, never send the money! Good luck!
