Obvious Frauds - 5 Jobs - Same "Client"

In Accounting & Consulting there are five (5) jobs, each:

 

1. Posted in last 1-2 hours

2. Seeking 99 Freelancers

3. Expert Level

4. No previous hires

 

Combined, these are clear indicators of a scam.

 

This pattern is repeated almost daily and, yet, Upwork has no screening for this pattern to catch them before allowing posting.

 

In the past, I have flagged jobs with this identical pattern and opened tickets - usually with delays of many hours before action, if any, is taken.

 

I will no longer spend my time doing what I believe should be an automatic screen of this pattern.

Yes, the writing section has a team running daily scams. Although I haven't seen them today. Maybe they have finally been shut down. (Or just moved to your section.)
