Unfortunately there are individuals that take advantage of nice individuals like yourself and basically steal your money. This can cause depression, bitterness, undue stress, and even anger. My accountability platform isn't 100% scam proof, but It'll help put your service provider in check. This is done by breaking his payments up into portions or milestones. The milestones are set up by you the owner. I would advise not to give more than 20% to the service provider up front. As a matter of fact, pay them the lions share at the back end to ensure they stay for the duration of the job. Work with the service provider on each milestone to decide what portion of work goes into each milestone. As the service provider finishes the milestone and he turns it over to u for verification. Then u decide if it is completed to your liking. If it is then you send them their payment through our secure system.
