Hi Diana, 

As a gentle reminder, please note that users cannot communicate off Upwork until a contract has been set up on your account (
the client sent an offer, and you accepted it). Clients are also not allowed to pay outside of Upwork, and freelancers should not accept when this arrangement is offered. These are violations of the Upwork Terms of Service.

It would also be best to visit these articles for more information on how you can keep in line with Upwork's Terms of Service when engaging on the website:

In the future, you can report suspicious user activity by following the steps in this articleIn the meantime, it would be best if you read up on the "Safety First!" section of the freelancer resources we have compiled, these tips for avoiding questionable jobs, and these resources for more information about working safely through Upwork.

I found all those job post that shows 0 spent are not compliant with Upwork. Then how can I get a genuine work in Upwork?

How did you make a police report? Do you know the real names and adresses of the scammers?

Unfortunately, this isn't a police matter. Police can't help you.

 

Sorry.
