Here is how scam begins. Be Awake


I apply for a job and the client responds by sending me his telegram ID. Given my experience on the platform I understand immediately that this is scam. So I refused the client's offer.

Therefore, I would like to draw upwork's attention to these facts. 

Please find attached a screenshot of the client's offer.

Thank you.

There's a "flag as inapproprate" link on each project that you can use to report these scams, so you should go ahead and do that instead of merely threatening to report them.


Hi Israel,


As Christine already shared please use Flag as Inappropriate option throughout the platform. You can learn more about user reporting here.

Our teams are working to address the situation around scam and spam jobs, including higher than usual volumes of scam posts, constantly changing methods of scam accounts and gaps in user education around Upwork TOS and safety. Additionally, I assure you that we'll continue sharing users' feedback with the team and providing updates to the Community about team's initiatives. Feel free to check this post for and update from our Trust & Safety team and their efforts around addressing these issues.
