    hi everyone...

    recently i'm starting up a JV looking for partner...

    but the thing is a few member interested to join me but they are afraid being scammed... and ended up not joining me as i dont have any member that can back up me ( to prove that i'm really paying )...



    so guys, any good suggestion how to solve this?
    any good method/tips on how to build trust between members?

    trust takes time to build but easy to break. no rush. take your time and maybe modify your plan.

    talk to the person on instant messenger first. share your thoughts. "shoot some bull" aka. just chat on basic subjects for a bit just to get together and make things a bit more personal. Depending on how well you guys get to know each other then perhaps talk on the phone. I'm usually hesitant about this at first... Never want to give your # up right away just in case. Also, use a secondary email account with... I'm almost certain though that some people here who I've talked to and worked with have sold my email or put it on spam lists because, while most of the people who I've done business with here are cool (i did the work they paid) the amount of spam and kinds of spam i get now make me very suspicious of some people. I can't definitely say it's someone here but, there are like I said some signs pointing me in that direction.

    As for $ changing hands you should try to change your strategy. Perhaps a slit payment option such as x% up front y% after. If it's like a website or something then consider having them make a demo first on their server let you take a look perhaps some screen shots of different parts of the site and if you like it you pay or have them revise. Really depends on your what your JV is about as to how to build trust and handle money though. Also, try contributing to the forum more. Let them know that your an "authority" on what you know or have valuable things to share. You can tell a lot about the person based on how they post.
