Dangerous activities to freelancers

Hello Upwork security team!


I hope you are doing well.

I am reaching out to you because my first dispute brought up suspicious issues about the client (**Edited for community guidelines**) during the investigation.

 

Actually, he scammed me.

 

Job id is here:

 

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

I just searched this guy on social websites and google, but I couldn't find.
Dangerously, I have awful news. His name and work histories are fake. And there is no matching pair in the database. This is biggest news and at the same time, i started worrying about his malicious activities to future freelancers.
Thus also I alerted this guy to federal legal institute to track his background history.

 

Actually, "**Edited for community guidelines**" is not IT company or agency. Please have a look this link.**Edited for community guidelines**

 

 

His pic:

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

His email:

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

Fake Linkedin profile (Empty).

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

As a result, his background is questionable and he is currently cheating the court and using an alias, which is currently in violation of Upwork policy.

I need**Edited for community guidelines**to upload his own video and discuss further more.
However, i am reporting this issue and will expand my investigation into this and file a lawsuit all the way to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In the meantime, I earnestly request that Upwork investigate the his profile again.

PS:
Upwork is trusted as one of the most reliable and secure job sites out there. Recently, many fraudulent groups have appeared on many job sites, and many clients and freelacers are unintentionally victimized by this, and the reliability of the assignment platform is declining.
I am heartbroken that Upwork is being criticized and discredited by many clients and freelancers because of these scammers.

I think this is a problem that needs to be addressed.

Thanks for reading all.
Regards,
Ryan
