Re: Copy & Paste Job turned Commission Only Job, What the hey...

What the hey...

 

I applied for a "Business Leads (Copy & Paste)" job... Wrong!

 

Instead I get an invitation for a "Commission Only Job".

 

Why don't they just offer the "Commisson Only Job" to begin with?

 

 

I could have used my Bid elsewhere, if I had only known.

 

 

Just had to vent a little.

Hi Linda,

 

I will follow up with the team about this job. Commission only jobs are not permitted on Upwork.

Hi Valeria K.,

 

I did withdraw my "Business Leads (Copy & Paste)" bid and had marked the job post as "Spam".

 

These type of jobs, to me, are in the same class as clients calling themselves "qwerty", "sdfgsg", "fgsdfgf" and so forth and so on.

It's sad that people try to "hire" people for such shady things. Especially since usually you won't even get paid if you do the "work" described.

 

I had a job on another platform that required me to download something and then enter Captcha codes. At the time, I didn't know that it was against the rules in most places - but whatever I downloaded wouldn't work like the client said it would. Needless to say, I deleted it immediately and never heard anything further from the client.

Barbara,

 

Sounds just like several different jobs I have already reported. Except, my Norton Program would not allow their programs to download onto my computer.

Valeria,

 

Would you please also inform your supporters James and Mark about this. I today reported such a job and both insist that commission only jobs are permitted on Upwork.

 

Thanks

Valeria,

 

No problem, it's just tedious that this keeps turning up.
