A freelancer I was about to hire has earned $30K here on Upwork. Her portfolio is all plagiarized content, and I'm concerned that the work she's trying to sell us is also plagiarized. I can prove the plagiarism by pointing to the original artists she's copying from.
This is very serious. She's making bank (30K!) conning everyone---which cheats the original artists and is very dangerous for companies who hire here, since WE can get slammed for using someone else's work without proper license. I want to make sure she gets shut down. How can I file a ticket and submit detailed information about the case?
I flagged her profile for "Bogus Content" but I don't believe that will do anything since they don't have any additional information to look at.
Thanks in advance.
