Re: Beware of Scam from ** Edited ** Public Library

Date: December 7, 2023

 

This morning, I applied for a job as shown in screenshot Image 1. I received a reply within minutes (see Image 2) asking me to contact someone via Telegram. After contacting them (as detailed in Image 3), the offer is indeed too good to be true. Therefore, I am certain it is a scam.

If at the first contact you are asked to discuss outside Upwork, it's a scam.

Hello C A,

 

I checked the job post you were referring to and it appears that it's already been taken down because it was in violation of Upwork TOS.


Please check out this course for more tips on staying safe on Upwork and please use the flag option found on each job post or message anytime you’d like to report a violation.
