Scammers on Upwork!

I'm new here and i'm shocked with work of this site! Guys there is no possibility to contact client support!!!!!! How to report about problem????

There are so many scammers here! Upwork take money that we had few opportunities to send our cv and they don't check orders! Freelancer can just lost money when will by bids and send cv to clients which upwork didn't check!!!!!!!

Please make it possible to contact you!

Is it possible to find work here not for programmers?

Last person who replied to me send me her referral link on crypto app and asked to make "free test before contract".... It's definitelly not what i expected! And here are a lot of such people whos payment is not veryfied, who send their own referral links and ask to make some work for free before start.... and for that upwork wants freelancers to pay? Upwork already take comission wfom all orders it's not enough? We should pay to communicate with scammers?????

So sorry to hear this happend to you, and many others, and it's going to keep happening. Upwork knows about the scam problem and says they are trying to do more to stop it. I see no evidence of that as the scam post numbers seem to actually be increasing. So, get used to it and flag them when you see them. Upwork does not vet client posts in a way that would prevent even incredibly obvious ones from appearing in our feeds. If they did, they wouldn't be there. Please read this to help keep you safe: https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/List-of-red-flags-for-scams/m-p/1017044/highlight/true...
