Someone using the name **Edited for Community Guidelines** saying they are with a company called **Edited for Community Guidelines** are bogus. They do the google hangouts interview and talk alot about briefing and want to pay direct deposit. I called **Edited for Community Guidelines** and they have never heard of this person and are not hirirng freelancers.

Oldest scam in the book (it's been all over the Internet for at least 10 years) and there was no need to google anything or make any calls... OF COURSE that person is not called what they said they were called, and frankly at the point of them saying "pay by direct deposit" you could have known it is a scam....

Hi Angela,

 

I've checked and our team has already removed the client you communicated with from the platform for violating Upwork ToS. Please review the safety tips I shared with you on the other thread and feel free to flag/report similar requests going forward, so our team could review and take action.
