Watch Out if You Hire Writers From Digital Point

If you are someone who hires writers from digital point watch out for Khawaja4000. You will see he/she currently has 1 i trader, which was left by me before I saw their true colors. I hired this writer to come and join my writing team for long work and the work was good I must say, only required minor editing. However, when it comes down to payment its a whole different story. Khawaja4000 aka quoted me a rate for the first set of work and said it would be $2.00 extra since I paid via Paypal. I agreed to this an the payment was made immediately after work was accepted, even though some portions had been copied and paste. We worked through that issue and I assigned him a different assignment. He quoted me a price and told me about the Paypal charge again, I agreed. However, when the work was completed and sent to me I asked for the Paypal address he wanted the money to be sent to. This time he informed me that the rate had went up and a $2.00 fee (Paypal) would be added again. To make a long story short I paid him his new price, even though it was not what we had discussed and told him his services would no longer be needed for the new work I had sent prior before knowing his prices would be shaky. After I cancel the assignment he tells me he is already started. I inform him that I canceled the order and I do not want it. He tries to say the price will go back to normal but being the type of person I am I do not have time to be playing games when it comes to money so I denied.


This is a lesson learned for me. I now know not to deal with writers on DP who have a 0 itrader. However, I remember at one point in time I had a 0 i trader so I was trying to give him/her the benefit of the doubt. Lucky for me I started off with small orders imagine if it would have been a big order and he upped on the price. Well this is a warning to alert other fellow business owners. You can either take heed or go experience it for yourself.

  1. Excellent blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  2. I’m so sorry this happened to you, sounds as though he’s/she’s a shady character. I’m a little lost as to why they needed the 2.00 fee added every time? (Off topic, ever see the movie, “Better Off Dead” with John Cusack? He was being chased by a paper boy who always wanted, “two dollars!”)
    I’ve heard that Paypal charges a fee sometimes, is that what this was about?

    I am just starting on DP, and I haven’t even started posting for writing gigs. Don’t you have to post on there ten times before you can put your add up? I’m a little confused with how this works, but my point was that I understand where your coming from however, now I”m scared to even post my work for hire since many people will see a 0 by my name.

    1. Yea I guess his country didn’t accept Paypal so he had to go through a third party or something like that. However, you should not be afraid to post, people may not want to pay upfront but if you did with clients who have good i traders you will have no problem until you can get your i trader up. I know it is a number of posts you have to have before you can advertise your services, but not sure how many. However, in the meantime you can respond to work that people need done.
