I never had this happen before, but I recently had a prospective client contact me about writing copy. The person seems like a cool guy. He talked about making money a lot, but when it came down to actually paying for copy, he didn't have any money and asked if I would accept gold chains, or some type of jewelry, sports watch, etc.
I was like.....is he serious? Even if I was into that kind of stuff, I had no idea if the merchandise was hot or what.
Anyway, I got a kick out of it and I'm just wondering has anyone else ever encountered similar offers? LOL!
