I submited for proposal   (link - https://www.upwork.com/ab/proposals/761535695105941504) i think this proposal is suspect, he proposed us to decode google image codes and i dont know if that thing is legal. The identity of client is suspect and i dont trust that he will pay for work. Plizz if you can hlp me how  to verify the  lawfulness of this job and if i am secure for payment? Where i can adress to help?

 

Thank you veru much

I assume you mean by "decode image codes" you mean enter captcha codes? Nope, not legit.

Ion:

 

Maybe entering CAPTCHA codes is "lawful" in some places. Maybe it isn't "lawful" in some places.


This is irrelevent.

 

You should be concerned with these 2 important considerations:

1) Participating in this kind of thing is against Upwork's rules.

2) You will never earn any money doing this.

 

Note that there are MANY things which are indeed legal in your community, but which are nevertheless against Upwork's rules. You need to concern yourself with Upwork's rules.

 

And it's worth knowing that the CAPTCHA capture people are just scammers.
