Beware! Content Writing Scammers.

Hi everyone! I know that this post seems quite out of place, but I can assure you that there is a reason for this. 

I have recently begun content writing and had advertised my service on a Facebook Group for writers. My ad was responded to by a guy who said that they are looking for someone who can write articles on the Marketing and Technology niche and asked that I write a 500-word sample article with my topic being the Best Keyword Research Tools. He stated that upon completion and if my writing met their standards, that I could be writing for them on a part-time or full-time base and receive payment for my work. I completed this article and sent it to him, thanking him for the opportunity. 

A few days after emailing him the article, I sent a follow-up message, which he read. This whole situation seemed very odd and I had sent another follow-up message, this time to his email address that was provided for me to submit my work. To date, I have sent a total of 5 messages to him with no response. Some acquaintances that I have gained in the industry suggested that there is a high possibility that this person lied to get out of paying. 

Which is why I am posting this to warn others of this trend that seems to be happening. Being someone that is still very new to this scene, I am very grateful to those who have helped me so far in this journey. While it has been hard to start, I'm slowing getting the hang of it.
