Scam / Spam / Bots

Lot and lot of spam & scam posts are being posted in Upwork nowadays. 

Some are there even after 30 hrs of flagging. 

But I am wondering why and how 20 to 50 people placed their bid in this one? Bots?

Hi Ramesh,


Thank you for reaching out to us and sharing your feedback and concerns. Our teams are working to address the situation around scam and spam jobs, including higher than usual volumes of scam posts, constantly changing methods of scam accounts, and gaps in user education around Upwork TOS and safety.


Additionally, I assure you that we'll continue sharing your feedback with the team and providing updates to the Community about the team's initiatives. We truly appreciate your coordination by letting us know if you find anything suspicious has happened by using the Flag as Inappropriate option throughout the platform.
