Hey,

 

So I applied for a work and then the client responded to me and wanted to add me on skype. But he said his company's CTO will add me, so I said sure. But after giving my ID to him, someone add me right away and I felt a little suspicious. Later on that person was trying to tell that he will give me website job if I let him use my own upwork account and also said if I could provide him with a US upwork account. Well, I blocked the guy but I took all the screenshots of the conversation so that you guys can deal with it.

Hope all these attachments helps, thank you!

Only allowed to post 4 attachments in a message, so I could not provide this one in the main post. So here it is.

Hi Ifran,

 

Please contact the Upwork support with all these screenshots. This is just an offer of cheating. Upwork never allow such acts. So please pass the info with support team so that they can ban the client and the so-called CTO ( I guess he is a freelancer) permanently and make the workplace safer.

 

Thanks
Sagar

Ifran, I have just flagged your post, because I think it will be faster if a moderator can intervene on this. Whatever you do, do not have anything more to do with this client, and do not engage in any further communication.

Hello Nichola,

 

Thanks for responding to this issue, yes I blocked them in skype and reported the job post as soon as I got that fraudulent offer.
