Nina Joy and Lucky Lou,

 

We'll have the client and the job you both interviewed for reviewed as soon as possible and actions taken. Please, do not send any money to a client. Requesting freelancers to pay application fee is a violation of Upwork ToS.

 

Thanks for reporting!

Your right. He offered me $18/h, i was so happy but then i consulted my friend if do i really need to pay for the work permit? Once she told me that it might be scam then i check right away in the google if that case is normal. Thanks that i found the answer and reported already to upwork.

Hello everyone,

 

I guess this scammers are striking again. I just received an offer for an interview for this job post: *** Edited for Community Guidelines *** then she gave me the FB link of their admin for my interview: *** Edited for Community Guidelines *** Please be aware co-freelancer.  Attached captured conversation.

 

Thanks,

Ilenne

I think the job has been delisted. But Ilenne, try not to engage with these people. Report them, block them and move on.  These scammer sharks swim the data entry waters in huge shoals.

Hi,

 

This job post is still on Upwork until now. I already withdrawn my proposal and just reported it and flag as inappropriate. *** Edited for Community Guidelines *** My concern is they can still gather more applicant.

 

Thanks,

Ilenne
