AgroAmerica Scam on Designers

 

AgroAmerica Scam targets on-line designers (http://agroamerica.com/ ). This is a  scam being perpetrated upon freelance web designers and graphic designers and it is pretty disgusting. Since this is the second time they’ve contacted me I thought it’s time to promote them. The phone number I was texted from is probably a burner phone. It’s usually a red flag when someone requests credit card payment or states they have a budget you could literally swim in. The first time they contacted me I knew immediately as they wanted to pay a couple thousand more over what the quote would be that would then be paid to their designer who would then coordinate the deliverables to the designer (me in this case) doing the work.

As I have been working with companies and private individuals for decades it’s pretty easy to spot a red flag from the first contact and this was no different. Apparently though they have fooled a few people and are perfecting their approach. For designers who want to work (who doesn’t?) it’s tempting to write up a quote and take on jobs even when red flags are waving but the reality is it’s better to listen carefully and determine the risks, especially when doing free-lance and contracted work. My advice; always have a signed contract and always do a little research regarding your potential client before you start any work or draft. Never deliver frame work or designs until you have a signed contract from someone authorized to contract work. For more about this scam  read:
