The majority of QA consultants and software testing teams shared the experience of getting into a scrape when dealing with some foreigner offshore testing teams. Why do people do like this and what are the reasons? Today we will study, what forces offshore companies to fool their foreign partners and how not to be cheated.
Main Reasons Why Foreign Customer May Deceive:
- dealing not with the direct employer, but with intermediaries;
- the customer remains unknown;
- the customer’s firm is registered in one of the offshore zones;
- some of the developers don’t pay a significant attention to the treaty they should sign;
- technically illiterate formulated task, entitling the customer to interpret it very freely;
- execution of work without pre-payment.
Recommendations on How Not to Be Deceived:
- work only with a direct customer;
- work only with firms, but not with private individuals;
- gather as much information about the firm, its reputation;
- not to deal with those firms that are registered in the offshore zones;
- consult with lawyers;
- formulate the task competently on work performance, paying attention to the wording of paragraphs job so that the customer could not interpret them loosely and ambiguously;
- don’t start work without having a pre-payment;
- split the payment into several stages;
- refrain from concluding the contract if intuition suggests that there is something wrong.
