Hello everyone! Done reading this: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ing-scammed-basic-pointers-your-security.html and this: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/hire-freelancer/117175-freelance-rules.html I hired a member (freelance) of this forum yesterday to transfer my blog(blogspot) directly to my web hosting. I am on PPD. First time having a website. I have to give him blogger account and my cPanel(web hosting) account. My blog is 6 months old with 200+ pages. He's a reputable one, a 2008 member (Senior), 97% itrader, 100+ reputation. My question is that do I have to pay him immediately even if the job is not done? 40$ is our agreement. With 24-48 hours work job. Do I have to give my blogger account? or can I just download the .xml file(export) of my blog and give it to him. Any advice? My mother told me not to trust anyone on internet. Even my friends told me that they will hack my site if they could(if given a chance) (suckers) since I am the one who's earning high. I know he can read this but I just want to make sure. My blog is my one and only money site, if it is destroyed I'm done. Hope you understand. Thanks in advance!
