Whenever I see jobs like "need experienced designer/artist/whatever for easy job, needs to be expert at (and here goes long list of software, not even related sometimes to what they want), easy job, great to start your Upwork carreer" and they have budget $5-$10. That's not even crazy. That's... pathetic. More pathetic when I see people actually bidding on it O_O


"Easy job" is a red flag. I don't read any further. Come to think of it, I should add 'NOT "easy job"' to my job feed search string.

 

P.S. On second thoughts, that would rule out a client who writes "this is not an easy job, and I'll pay accordingly"!

No, but i took the job anyway. He was very respectful and seemed really
nice in chat, everything went really well until i showed up at his door for
the photo session.

The question is how long did it take for him to ask for your social security number and bank account and  routing numbers?

And was that before or after the great idea that if only you would help him move $39, 438,299 out of Nigeria, you could have 10% of it.

I didn't even get to take my clothes off! Some nonsense about me being the wrong gender! That's sexual discrimination if you ask me! So I beat him up and took his Gucci lamp.

Hahaha! just kidding!

In all seriousness, it would simply be a bad business decision to try to hire models with a job post like that on Upwork, given the questionable allowability of such a post, and the availability of websites dedicated to providing such services.

 

modelmayhem.com and models4hire.com are just two of the well-established resources for hiring models of all types.
