Thank you guys for attention. Same thing happens with. It seems like credit card details stealing. My advice first check the information about your employer by google, like me. And never send your CVV and card number to person who you dont know.

I've received the same offer. However, one of the mails came from the following address: **Edited for Community Guidelines**. Can they really use such an address without being the actual company?

Same thing for me. I received another email from the "famous"**Edited for Community Guidelines** today. It looked like a scam to me so I've searched for her on the web and have found your messages.

 Juliette the name would be generic and used over and over again by different people. The best thing would be to report this 'viral' job to customer services.

Hi Juliet and others,

 

I checked and it looks like the job and the client you are referring to have already been removed from Upwork. You'll see that the proposal has already been archived.

 

Thank you.

Hi all,
I have received the same. I'm newbie in internet freelance and foolishly I gave my CVV to him. What can I do to protect my card or it's already too late? Smiley Sad

Oh the amount of people affected is overwhelming. :-(

 

Anton, my only advice would be to call your bank immediately (I mean it - RIGHT NOW) and block and reissue your card. Inform them about the scammer and report any unauthorized transactions.

Good luck!
