Stranger lurking in my messages and inviting freelancers without my consent

I've noticed in my messages, some stranger has been entering in the message conversations.  When I click on her name, my company name is beneath hers.

 

She's now been inviting a ton of freeelacers to my project which is very annoying.

 

Anyone know what is going on or having a similar experience?

Report it to CS as soon as possible.

 Have you gotten a reply from CS?

It may be related to the spam attack that's been going on for the past two days.

And Upwork made a point of telling us there was no reason at all to be worried or change passwords.

Which I have done anyway.

 Maybe he forgot that he clicked this. I recently got that pop-up message when posting a job on behalf of one of my client's.

Hi David and others,

 

The situation has been clarified through the ticket. An Upwork recruiter has been a part of David's conversations since he signed up for Upwork Project Success Program.

Stranger danger.

 

Oops I know that guy. He's my CS rep.
