Upwork won't tell you that. Best thing to do is follow the rules for payment protection. Most scammers will either not open a contract, open a $5 milestone, or something like that. Only thing you don't know is if a card is stolen. If you don't get good vibes, at least go hourly and follow the payment protection steps to a T.

You Don't need a verification on a client. What you need is to educate yourself on the scams that go on here. If you have knowledge of about 5 scams that go on here, then there's no need for any verification.

Hi Yasir, 

You may want to read up on the Safety First! section of the freelancer resources we have compiled, and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs to help you identify red flags and for more information about working safely through Upwork. Hopefully this will help you identify clients, and report the ones that use Upwork for their scamming practices.
