I don't use Upwork, but I just created an account so I could flag this job listing (I'm also posting here to make sure this is resolved):

The client is claims to be affiliated with
**Edited for Community Guidelines**. I know this is false because I'm the owner of musicformakers.com. And I'm now getting emails from freelancers about this job — that's how I found out about it. Please remove this listing ASAP, or let me know if there are any additional steps I should take.

That sucks Logan.  I will flag this so that a mod sees it sooner rather than later.

 

I kind of of want to apply to see what the scam is.

Thanks, Mark! Yeah — I'm curious, too, honestly. Not sure what they stand to gain from the impersonation.

Well unforunately there are a lot of scams that popup here because Upwork attracts a lot of people who are trying to find a way to do this freelancing thing and can be somewhat desperate.  I think it is going to be especially bad right now because of the quarantines, job losses and slowdowns people are looking to find extra income.
