I would like more information as to how much money I have in my account and how much is deducted when a person contacts me. Recently, I was surprised to find out that a person's response back from mine cost me $7. Unfortunately, nothing more came of this connection since the person (in my opinion) misrepresented herself. I thought she was a parent looking for help for her child, but instead she owns a tutoring agency. When I told her my rate per hour, she never contacted me again even though my rate is clearly stated in my profile. I think she should have identified herself from the beginning as representing an agency, because then I would not have replied to her since I rarely work for agencies. This situation cost me $7. Before this happened, I had no idea that such a communication would cost so much. Can you provide us with a breakdown of costs so we will know what we are getting into before we intially respond to someone? Is there any recourse if we feel someone has misrepresented themselves?
