Briefly, I've been asked by a new possible client to start talking via skype about the job. When using Skype, after a few normal questions ("Are you unemployed now?", "Are you new freelancer?") he asked "Can you sell or lend your Upwork account to me?" and then he clarified that his proposal wasn't even related to the job title. I obviously declined.
So he has wasted my time and I think I've been also exposed to risk. What should I do next? Who I may inform of this suspicious behaviour? Also his Skype account is by most suspicious (who's Id would be **Edited for Community Guidelines** as it's name?!?!)
you should flag the original job offer for violation, you can add a comment there, too.
I just received the same offer today from another platform. This guy is giving me a google doc with proposal detail. He claimed that he has a proven track record of success in upwork but he can’t open an account due to his location outside of the states. He provided me email and Skype link.
