Be careful, be safe.

WordPress Login WindowI woke up with a start. The adrenaline was pumping so fast that I was wide awake.

I was on the phone with a potential client. We talked for a while and she asked me for my website’s login and password information, so that her coding expert people could assess my abilities. I gave them to her and then asked why she wanted to hire me, if she had coding expert people that she already used.

There was a long pause and the line. went. dead.

I immediately ran to a computer to change my password, and that’s when I woke up.

So be careful who you give your passwords to!

By the way, if you’re thinking of hiring me, I can give you a list of actual human clients who have used me for jobs and who can vouch for my honesty. Contact me.
