Did something change with the way clients contact freelancers?

Hi Natasa -- was the "similar website" a site called digiserved? If so, click here. Apparently someone hacked the system to mass email freelancers and invite them to another freelancer site.

Thanks Isabelle and Krizstina. I haven't seen Garnor's post before. Yes, that's the one. I didn't know if this was a new project from oDesk (at the time) or a new website.  

 

What worries me though is the rep's reply. My profile has always been set to "Upwork users only" and she told me that clients have an option to reach out by sending a message on the profile page. I just want to make sure that things have not changed because I don't want to be contacted by people outside Upwork.

 

 

EDIT: I had a chat sesssion with CS and they clarified the "users only". Nothing changed.
