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.
