I am updating my website photos and creating a database with mail chimp and I have reached out to Upwork a freelance agency that can help with this. I went through the referrals and found someone from Vietnam who scored very well and had quite a few references but I am nervous to give him access to my website. I don’t know him and if it goes terribly wrong, there is not the instant help you can get from someone standing in front of you.

I think surely everyone who ever tried a freelancer from another country takes the leap and trusts this person with their website. I read the information on scams etc. There are a few but mainly around paying and that is not my worry. My worry is that I am handing over my website access to someone I don’t really know. Would appreciate any help.
