Making sure People are who they say they are!!
When you take on a project it's important that you know the person you are working for is who they say they are and the same goes for employers who have to be sure they are employing someone who is real and not using somebody else's profile which is called identity theft!!!
There are things you can do to check a person out which is as follows:
Google their profile image and see what it brings up!
Check out the person's profile and how it is written - there are tell-tale signs which includes typos, misuse of typical English phrases, syntax is wrong or maybe the grammar used is really suspect
Of course these are just three ways of checking out if a profile is real or fake - but there is never a guarantee of it working. By far the best way to see if a person is who they say they are is to give them a call or ask them to phone you before you start a project with them - if they refuse - run...........
