I have found what looks like a fake profile? What to do?

Greetings,

I have tried to flag a fake profile but it dosen't seem like Upwork is responding as it is still online. The profile I have found is this one:

**Edited for community guidelines**The reason it looks suspicious is because of the earnings. The profile has one hourly contract 13 usd per hour but the earnings are 99.500 usd already. The contract started Jan 20 and the hours worked only for that month is 8.800.

How can I make sure Upwork is looking at it?

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I know. But look at the profile before you are answering in that kind of way. It is not possible to work that many hours during two weeks.

Why? Becuase because one week contains 168 hours.

Not that I think it looks ok, but do notice the contract start in 2015 until now. Thus the number of hours could be possible.

The hourly rate can be changed during a contract:

Feb 2015 - Present is almost 5 years. So by my calculation he worked less than 40 hours a week
