Don’t Pre-Pay For Work In The Philippines

127

I get this story often enough that I thought it was worth a post.

DON’T PRE-PAY FOR WORK IN THE PHILIPPINES.

Clearly this isn’t a 100% of the time rule, because there are times when it’s appropriate.
Just DON’T do it with a new employee.
Don’t buy them a laptop.
Don’t pay their internet bill.
Don’t pay for their sisters medical bills.

Not with a new employee.

Filipinos are shy enough as is. If they’re not comfortable with you yet, and they’re asking for money up front, for work they haven’t done yet, there’s something wrong.

Here’s a conversation a friend of mine had recently with a new employee:

dont prepay for work in the philippines

It was the 2nd person he had hired who was asking for money up front. The first person disappeared. He learned his lesson for the second person.
