Fraudulent Job Indentifiers?

Are you folks seeing the same in your Categories?  (I am in Accounting and Consulting)

 

Almost every day, I see multiple job postings that I believe are definitely scams and they each have the same identifiers:

 

          Posted for the first time, no hires and seeking multiple Freelancers, eg. 10,20,30+.

 

Most of them time, I see many Proposals received so somebody is getting scammed.

 

I have been pressing for Upwork (PMs) to realize these characteristics and pre-screen them with no result.

 

Yes, I have been flagging them.

Yes, I am doing Data Entry and I see numerous each day. So now I do not search for work unless they have a verified payment method.

Tracy,

 

If they don't have a verified payment method, I recommend you can make a Proposal but do not do any work until they do have it.
