  • 1.  Project Scam

    I and a few of my colleagues in Cleveland have gotten a number of these. Our investigation is that the scope is always the same - very large detailed program of needs, strange site location selected which always turns out to be fictitious. the owner doe not live here but will come in to town in a month or so to look at concept drawings and meet at the site.

    The client wants to pay with a credit card so they want you to give them your credit card so they can 'wire' you half of the retainer.

    It's a scam.
