Dont make my same mistake
Hello friends of cg trader, this goes for people who do private projects, and also so that they do not make the mistake that I made.
I did a private job for this user https://www.cgtrader.com/nicotto33.
in fact I did a lot of work for him. And since there was trust, lately he started and delivered the works before he prepared the project.
Today after 3 days of work I turned in the last job, which was a whole kitchen. and he just canceled the project and I was left with nothing.
I know I was stipulated for trusting like this, but I write this so that they do not fall into his trap and do not work for him, nor trust anyone. Scammers are on all sides.
I already sent a message to the support, with the chat screens showing all the work done and done.
Please excuse me if I offend someone for publishing this, but I was very angry about what this guy did.
Excuse my bad english
I'm just curious: did he provide you with any reason for cancelling the project? Was any communication between the two of you after the project was cancelled? I don't blame you for being angry, but that's the chance we take when doing private projects for commission. Perhaps you can make this part of your model portfolio and sell it. I know you do mostly private work, but you might end up making more money with this over time, in the long run.
Good luck going forward.
Thanks for sharing. I'm wondering if there is some value in CGT implementing a rating/reputation system for customer similar to that used for designers. Might give us a heads up on the toxic ones. Probably not, I guess nothing is stopping customers from just creating a new log on each time they get a negative rating.
What i like about cgtrader's freelancing system, is that its very secure and unless you do something very stupid, like start working and/or deliver files without securing prepayment, it's pretty low chances that you'll be screwed here. I did more than 100 jobs here and never had problems with clients. But of course you still have to be careful and think before acting - i had several cases where people tried to convince me to start working on their projects without prepayment and would dissapear when i insisted to follow proper procedure.
