This is a scam. You should NEVER send money to any "client".

Jermaine:

Your instincts were correct. You were smart to check here if you had doubts.

 

I don't think you'll need to check with us again when you see this kind of thing again.

 

This is a very basic concept:

You came here to make money, right?

 

So when somebody asks YOU to send THEM money... that's kind of the opposite of what you came here for.

 

No contractor should have a hard time figuring out that it's a mistake for them to send a client money. It's always a scam.

 

It is taking your car to a mechanic who pours sugar into the gas tank instead of fixing anything. Do you need to ask anybody if this is a legitimate automobile mechanic?

Hiii, I am finding a part-time job to make money and practice English. But I really wonder that I can receive money when I finish my job

Yours faithfully

re: "I am finding a part-time job to make money and practice English."

 

Lien:

If you want to practice English on Upwork, you should PAY people to tutor you.

 

You should not come here to practice English by getting a job.

 

ALSO:

If you want to "make money," this is NOT where you should go. There are countless opportunities in your local community for you to do work and earn money.

 

Contractors come here because they have valuable expertise and skills which they can use to provide needed services to clients.

 

If you came to simply Upwork to "make money," you're in the wrong place. Upwork does not just give people opportunities to "make money."
