Shaun,

WHY?  Because in the US academic fraud is considered morally repugnant!  Why?  Because it IS!

Hi Mark, 

I checked all the job posts you noted, and I was only able to find two. Please know that we have a dedicated team that checks the reported job posts and confirms if they merit further actions or not.  There are also instances when actions are taken by the team, but you can still access the job post because you have the direct link.

 

If you can please send me the links to the jobs you have noted through a private message, I will go ahead and double check the job posts, and follow up with the team the jobs that haven't been reviewed yet.

Hi Mark, 

 

I've followed up on your report and asked the team to review the jobs you have noted. The team will take action against the job posts if found to be in violation of the Upwork Terms of Service.

It looks like one client in Richmond played all semester - s/he has 3 or 4 academic assignments posted.  I flagged them all.  We'll see what happens...

Avery,

Just so you -- and your team - know, UW's reputation is declining as a result of this, and other, sorts of nefarious activity by the slimeballs that you allow to play here!

 

What's worse, is that several of these cheater clients have a history of fulfilled cheating jobs on this platform -- what that says about UW's inadequate oversight, tolerance for repugnant behaviors and apparent disinterest in honoring the moral values of the country where your corporate status resides - is telling!

 

I think you need to clean it up -- taking 20% of my earnings can certainly help in this endeavor.

Mark and others,

 

We definitely understand your frustration. Upwork has millions of registered users and thousands of projects are posted daily on our platform.  As such, despite the many tools we have in place to detect jobs with violations, some users find a way to circumvent our efforts. Still, we don't take this issue lightly and job posts are removed as soon as the team becomes aware of them and confirms a violation.

Flagging a job post and adding details in the provided box or submitting a support ticket is the best way to report a violation and notify our Marketplace Quality team directly and privately. We really appreciate user's flagging jobs with violations and helping us with improving the quality of the marketplace. 

 

I will also forward the concerns and observations shared on this thread to the team.

 

Thanks!

~ Valeria

 You need to get a grip! "Do nothing" isn't true and you know it, you are also letting out your foul temper on the wrong people (the mods) who you know can't fight back because they have to be polite regardless of how rude people are to them, which likely gives them ulcers eventually.

 

Of the long list you posted the other day of the jobs you oh so heroically flagged, the only ones that were still publicly findable were the two posted the same day you flagged them, one like an hour before you flagged it.
