SPAM and SCAMS this week?

Strange this week, I have seen more than the usual amount of fraudulent postings (I know, because I got burned) and spammy looking job ads. Is anybody else experiencing this? I have hardly been able to bid on anything, which is going to hurt me in the end.

Linda, this is so true. I don't know the reason.


Maybe Scammers Digest released their annual survey of Top Websites to Do Business With, and Upwork was ranked #1, with a nice write-up about how Upwork newbies are a pleasure to work with as marks.

LOL you are too funny! But I will tell you, I am flagging "clients" left and right so that Upwork knows about all this.

I think Upwork lacks the security meassures to protect us.

The biggest fear I have, is that those fake links they include, will probably contain things like key entry tracking.
You can be sure, that spyware targeted at a website that contains finantial information, is not only after our bandwith.
