    I am about to pay alot of money for a service...like $5000. I'm like 99% sure the guy is legit but I just want to make sure. How do you guys protect yourself to make sure you dont get burnt. Either by quality of work or them just running off with the dough. BTW he wants it up front.

    Use an escrow service. This way he is sure you would pay and he gets his money. pay the fees if you have to as it is cheaper than losing the 5k
