Hello,

 

I appreciate any help on reporting fake profiles.

I tried Help Center, but I can not submit.

 

Thank you!

Hi Aaron,

 

Please use the option to flag profiles as inappropriate, available on freelancers' profiles. You can also submit a support request by using the Get Help button on the Help Center page, after making the appropriate selection and entering the necessary details.

 

Thank you for reporting.

Hi.

Here is fake profile I just found out.

**Edited for community guidelines**

Please check attached screenshots, which I took from teamviewer.

 

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

They told me I can earn much more money by using USA account.

They are providing teamviewer access and saying I can work remotely connected to the computer.

 

Then he shared account details via team viewer.

I took screenshot of account details.

Check the attached images which I took from screenshare.

 

The account is already id verified and was running on a dedicated VPS.

 

So... It means upwork can not block this kind of fake things.

Work is done by others via remote connection, when upwork requires verification, they contact actual owner and do verification.

 

Is this correct?

 

Anyway I wish this account to be handled correctly.

Best regards,

Branden

Thank you.

Also I belive their site should be hunted down as well.

This is not correct way to work online!

Hi Mario, 

Do you have screengrabs of conversations with these users or any other information we can go by when filing a report with the team? I would appreciate it if you can send me more information through a private message so that this can be investigated further.
