So I get an invitation for a "copy paste" gig on Craigslist. $1800 a month... simple job...RED FLAG...obviously. I can't help my self so I respond...And receive an email to begin correspondance...The investigative jounalist follows the sory...lol...any way..it's a offer not on pplatform...which makes me ask "why not on platfor?"
And she posts the following..."Because I can pay you ONLY after 2 weeks of work via PayPal , Check , Wire Transfer etc."
Another fabulous troll on UpWork.
That's ok, because Upwork accepts Paypal, Check, wire transfer etc. So setting up her payment method here using on Upwork shouldn't be a problem. And all you have to do is wait those 2 weeks BEFORE beginning work, for her to fund escrow and get her account verified.
And, by agreeing to pay you only after you've put in two weeks, they ensure that they'll never have to pay you anything, because there's no way you'll make it two weeks without getting blacklisted at Craigslist.
