So I often post on another forum, and a couple of days ago, I got a direct message from a member on that site asking me if I would be interested in writing articles relating to fashion/beauty/women's issues for her website at $15 dollars per article. It looks like she registed on that site strictly to direct message me with this offer, because she had no previous posts and registered as a member that very day. I emailed her at the address she gave me, saying that I would definitely be interested in writing for her, and asked for more details. She asked me how many I could write, and I told her as many as she wanted. She responded by saying that I could write 30 per month for a flat fee of $500, and that if I wanted to write much more than that, she would pay for as many as I could write. She also asked for my paypal email and said that she would pay in advance so that I didn't need to worry about now being paid. I don't know a lot about paypal security and such, but I gave her my paypal email after I googled her username on this other forum that I use, as well as googling her email address that she gave me. Both appear to go back to a girl with 2 websites pertaining to fashion/beauty issues, who also seems to have a book that will be published in 2008, so it *seems* legit, but now I'm a little scared that she can somehow access my account. Long story short, it seems like a super cool opportunity, but I am inexperienced with paypay outside of eBay auctions, and I'm wondering if I did the right thing? :shame: Any advice would be MUCH appreciated!
