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.
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.
