I’ve had my first negative outsource experience using ScriptLance where a 5 day project for $50 went nowhere after 3 weeks. As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is, I should have seen the disaster coming.

Tip #9 on price is not how I made my original decision but should have been flagged as an indicator at the time and Tip #5 is why I won’t be using ScriptLance again. A 5 minute read could save you a lot of trouble.
