Really terrible security on Upwork

I opened an account here as a web3 builder a few months ago and have had a much less than great experience. When I first opened my account I got my first gig on here Upwork arbitrarily froze my account and lost my gig (would have been ~20k). Would make you think security is high, but this is definitely not the case. Every other job opportunity I have been offered is a scammer trying to make me run malicious software on my device. Some are very obvious fake names or located in a time zone in the middle of the ocean. I have only got paying gigs from conferences, Discord, and Telegram. Is anyone else in web3 experiencing this? Seems like it is safer to be off of Upwork than on it.

Upwork clearly does not prioritize security because they let scammers run rampant in an effort to harvest more Connects money.  I refuse to believe the company is doing the best it can when it comes to keeping its users safe.  All evidence is to the contrary.  Why?  Because the C-suite is addicted to Connects revenue.
