I always try to pass along the warning too. When I was freelancing, 
detailed proposals accompanied by very specific contracts saved me on 
more than one occasion.

Only once did someone out & out try to cheat me, but there were plenty 
of times that clients "forgot" what the scope of a project entailed. 
Having a signed acceptance of proposal & contract on hand immediately 
silenced any disagreements. ;-)
