Looking for your suggestion!

Hello friends,

Yesterday I got an active candidacy from a job poster on Upwork they said me to add them on Whatsapp. Today they said that they are a recruiter of **Edited for community guidelines** and want me to work on their **Edited for community guidelines** data entry project by depositing my own money/per project, out of Upwork! What is this actually? Need yours' valued opinion.Thanks!

It's a scam.

Hi Tanmay,

 

I’ve checked this report and the project you're referring to has already been taken down because it was in violation of Upwork TOS and action has been taken on the client account.  Please note that it is a violation of Upwork’s Terms of Service to request or share contact information before a contract starts.  You can check this help article for crucial information that will help you have a safe and successful journey on Upwork.

 

Thank you!
