Scammer Freelancer

This guy **Edited for Community Guidelines**  is very friendly at first and ask you money to pay him separately in his crypto wallet and after that run away. He even stolen some bucks from my wallet where I put some bucks to test his bot and he stolen also he stolen 400 usd from other wallet because I put my private key in his bot. Completely bad experience be careful from scammer like him.

That is what you get when violating the ToS.


Hi Bibek,


Thanks for reaching out. Please, note that conducting payments outside of Upwork is a violation of the Terms of Service. It also increases the chances of fraud and such payments don't qualify for Payment Protection Upwork provides. For more information please see this help article. 


We'll also have one of our team members reach out to you directly to further assist with your concern.

There are indeed risks associated with cryptocurrency.


It would be appropriate to hire cryptocurrency experts who can talk to you about your plans and advise you about risks, before you go further with your project.
