I want to start my career in freelancing. What are the possible signs that you're applying for a scam?

1. If it sound to good to be true, then it's probably not true...

2. If they demand money BEFORE you earn anything, then it's a warning sign but POSSIBLE ok, and it's not a scam in legal point of view.

Many rather satisfied join for instance freelancer and try to get assignments through them. I haven't heared of any biger complaints about them - except it's hard competition  :)    but you are making the offers how much you ask to do a job, and the customers chose who they pick.

Your client can transfer the payment to you via Paypal or World Remit.

At least some years ago PayPal was the common,
but some paid by sending checks.

Is the sending of checks safe as a payouts? or is it better to have a card that can be link to PayPal?

Join a community of freelancers. They often have groups. If I am not mistaken, there's one community named online Filipino Freelancers. They have seasoned freelancers there and sometimes conduct seminars.

To know that you are getting into a scam as a freelancer, check if the deal is too good to be true. Some clients offer pay that is unrealistic and they promise to pay once you submit the job, only to disappear. Its wise to stick to platforms like freelancer.com and Upwork for payment protection
