I have received over 4 spam offers within a few minutes of each other- each for a different business, but all pertaining to Payroll services. If you see the following companies please be aware!
**Edited for Community Guidelines**
They are taking names and pictures off the internet, and posing as HR managers. They do not want to offer services within upwork, and refuse to speak unless you go into Google Hangouts. Once you state that you will not work outside of upwork- they get MAD! I got accused of being a really nasty person for playing it safe and not falling into the trap!
They tried asking for personal information, including bank account info!
I saw that at least many others applied, so I want to give other freelancers a head up!
For Lindsey and anyone else who receives an offer like that, take a screenshot and report it to support so the spammer can be banned.
