Is it fair to ask someone to resign before making them an offer?

I need a little more context.

I mean depending on the situation. Fair is based on perspective.

In my opinion its is not a good idea to resign from the current organization without having another offer in hand. In times where orgs withdraw the released official offer letter (Happened with me), it is no surprise that verbal confirmation isn't always sufficient.

Definitely not...

I would never agree to this and have trouble thinking of a scenario where I'd consider it fair.

Never. That's a set up

I honestly can’t think of a scenario where I’d feel like that’s fair.
