Payment Unverified - And already Hired 6

How buyers try to cheat at upwork in job post

1) Sharing the email ID

2) Sharing the Whats App

3) Want to Hire - Saying its 6th attempt to Hire


Here is a catch -

>> Client has posted 1 job til date

>> His own Payment method is not verified

See attached screenshot


I suppose Upwork, should not allow any buyer unless he/she has verified his Payment Method with Upwork

No Direct contacts allowed in job post

Hi Bhuvnesh,


When a client breaks Upwork's ToS, please flag as inappropriate when you are viewing their job post. Thanks!

I have observed that in case "Payment is not verfied" than client are not allowed to proceed further on the platform like message to freelancer or hire. However, catch is that freelancer can submit the proposal and if they ask to share contact details than liklihood of getting scammed increases.

Sharing contact details prior to contract is against upwork TOS and must be reported to upwork as mentioned by William.
