I am a freelancer developer. I just met a client who lived in USA. He has offered to hire me.
Here's the catch. The client said: "I have been warned by my bank not to pay by cheque or make any online transfers. If you have a US representative, please get back to me with the address and phone number and I'll contact them and make payment". I gave him options to pay online or transfer but he refused all.
What you can suggest about this client> Is he telling the truth or he is a fake client?
Things to note :
- He told me continuously: "I was warned by ...
- I have not done any work for him.
- He did not talk about work at first. He has only been asking about a representative number and address.
- I can communicate with him only on mail service.
Is it safe to give details to this client ?
