I just received a request for an interview. The client asked for my email and emailed me a link for an interview. The link was meet.google.com/***** and then a string of numbers. The message said that I can either click on the link or call a phone number and put in a code number. What does this mean? Thank you.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I thought it sounded a bit strange too, but when I looked at this company's information, it says they have spent over $10,000 and hired 49 freelancers on Upwork. That makes me think it might be legitimate.
Scammer profiles typically show ZERO dollars spent.
Not over $10,000!
For two reasons:
- Most scamers pride themselves on never paying any money to any freelancers
- Scammers get turned in by users and their Upwork accounts are terminated. So they're always having to create new fake accounts.
I don't know what the client is up to, but it doesn't sound like a scammer to me.
If you are interested, then proceed, but check in with us here, and we can help you avoid any problems.
While I'm unable to confirm if this job is a scam, I would like to recommend to please be cautios if you decide to continue your interview with this client.
