    for example should you pay someone for somthing/service first or should they give it to you first

    im not talking a few dollars more like hundreds

    i mean you can trust someone to an extent but then again it's the internet it's not like your gonna drive up to thier house and punch them in the face if they scam you.

    It depends. If the person doesn't have much of a history online then he should do the work before pay. But many well know marketers won't even consider doing that

    Wot about half up front with the balance payable on completion. I sure wish I had insisted on that for one job here, still trying to get them to deliver it all now over 2 months later..... wouldn't be a problem I am sure if he didn't have all his money in the bank 2 months ago, but now of course there is no incentive for them to actually complete and deliver......learnt the hard way.... Insist on 50/50, I will be in future....

    are you actually involved in something, or your just talking about it as a spectator?
