Ammon Johns puts on his "Business and Management Professor" hat with an excellent topic at Cre8asiteforums called Protection from Unscrupulous Prospects, Avoid getting ripped off by 'customers'. He writes:

"People posing as clients just to get ideas, then using those ideas with no intention of ever buying them, are so common that it is 100 percent certain to happen to any service business online."
When do you use a contract? Whom to trust? If you are a consultant, how many details do you offer without being paid for it? Ammon's introductory post is awesome, but it's the start of an incredibly educational thread complete with how-to advice and guidance from others in the Community.
"Beware of any potential client who wants to know how you will do something, rather than what you will do," offers Ammon"
He not only offers food for consideration, but he opens the floor to discussion and ideas. If you provide services, this is a must-read item.
