Bidding on Job

Now I see another job , payment verified client has already paid jobs for about 10K, but they place the entire project as 5 figures and the job posting is a one liner for multiple websites.  Upwork needs to tell people that are hiring that if they have a budget it should be listed as the actual part of the project. So let's say  they will pay $35 per hour or $35 per 500 words and not to list the task at 10K, because they may be hiring 40 people. No one wants to waste time on bidding for a project that is going to be way below  their normal rate.

 

The only way to get an idea is to look at other jobs finished and what the rate was for those hires.

People who are hiring should have to write a minimum job description in full and not a one liner, like articles written for 20 sites. They should have to follow a template to let the bidder know the scope pf the job in the description in order  for us to bid properly.

Leslie, 

 

Great job on spotting these scams. It shows you have done your homework.  You really need to change that profile pic though before you get suspended.  Your pic needs to be of you and you only.

Katrina, you beat me to it!

 

Leslie, Katrina and Jennifer are right. Fake pictures are an indication of duplicity and also the fact that the freelancer has not even bothered to read Upwork's Terms and Conditions. 

 

Your initial question is valid and hopefully, the answers will help you and other freelancers.
