Hi folks, is Upwork's intention to be a platform for individuals, or companies posing as individuals and then handing the work off to others? Are there any rules or guidelines regarding this?
Individuals. A company posing as an individual is in serious violation of policy and risks getting removed from the platform permanently. Upwork does video interviews to help verify individual identity and also asks for government issued ID.
If you find fraudulent freelancer activities, including companies or groups posing as individuals, please report it so Upwork can take action.
