sed to read the 411 eater site. Some of the convos with these people are funny. I got one to come out of his script and posted my conversation with him on reddit. He got so mad at me after like 3 days. I told him the teller at the bank kept holding the payment hostage and he told me to stop talking to tellers and he finally snapped when he didn't get giftcards out of me. Good times.

Did he ask about the Bobs?

I don't think it's a violation not to flag a job you're invited to. You already spend time having to look at it and decline it without having to investigate it to determine if it's a scam. But I haven't gone through the ToS looking for a ruling on it, so this is just a guess.

Perhaps this is a "dumb" question, but are clients permitted to send 180 invites???

 

That seems excessive.

It does at first glance, but could be innocent.

 

Only Enterprise clients can send unlimited invites to that many freelancers at once, that would mean it's a big client with significant spending and lots of hires in the past.

 

It "could" be a job the (normal / non enterprise) client keeps hiring for, and (theoretically) "could" have been open for months or years and the client just keeps inviting and hiring.

That makes sense. I do wish the data on "interviews" and "invites" were managed a bit differently. 

 

Even if an enterprise client can send 180, that seems really crazy.  I would love to better understand the data on the client side Smiley Happy

Not an enterprise client; seems to be his first posted job. Googling his name makes him seem legit, or a great guy to emulate if you want to scam people I guess. I just declined and moved on.
