Web Design Scam

We have received a couple of emails over the past couple of years where someone is looking for a website to be built or redesigned. They are looking for quotes. For the most part it seems like a normal-ish inquiry. They often are responsive to emails.

I sent the a quote which was more than their budget and they were okay with it, but then they started to ask about Bank information. What the bank was that was going to process her credit card. Not information I need to give out at this point. Then things get really funky.

She wanted me to accept her credit card payment, but needed me to pay her designer almost half and keep the balance for the deposit we require with a $50 tip. That isn’t how things work. I told the we can’t do that, and decided to warn others before you waste your time. If you get an email from “MellisaJavon23@gmail.com” don’t even reply.

Preview DNS Changes Quickly with Geopeekers

While working with a hosting provider to make some DNS changes necessary to point the domain to the new hosting and updated website we learned about GeoPeekers.com.

https://www.geopeeker.com

This tool allowed us to preview the DNS changes in just a minute or two. It was nice to know the site was going to completely fall apart when the DNS changes fully propagated.
