Re: Job description was different from actual work

Hi! I'm just new here and here's the first job that I got: The job description involves input of some data in a excel file. However, the employer's personal message has a different job. I was tasked to download a simple software that produces captchas that I need to verify. The employer told me to reach a certain quota and email him on a private email if I am already done. He gave me a username and pw for the said software. I just feel that it was fishy since he doesn't have a proper profile and a friend of mine landed a similar job and felt it was fishy too. Have any of you encountered a similar situation? Thanks in advance

Captcha Jobs are against the policies at Upwork. Report the client to Customer Support.

Unless he has a payment method verified and is paying hourly with your tracker on or has put money into escrow just say no. Just move on, don't worry about the job as it doesn't sound like you have one.
