Just wasted about an hour of time with someone who claims to be from the **Edited for Community Guidelines**. They were offering an entry-level copywriting job through the \"invitation to interview" tool through the site. They go by the name **Edited for Community Guidelines**. They then try to get information from you via Google Hangout. After some pressing, it was clear that they were a fraud. Fair warning and this is the second time I've been duped by the "invitation to interview" tool.
I'm sorry that you had your time wasted. Thank you for reporting these fraudulent "clients" to Upwork.
For future reference:
All invitations that ask you to use Google Hangouts are from scammers. Legitimate clients don't do that.
Next time, stop communicating with people immediately if they invite you to "interview"using Google Hangouts.
