I was contacted by a gal saying she worked for this recruiting agency. She told me to contact this other gentleman and he tried to tell me he worked for rolls royce. I called a corporate hotline and they assured me he was full of **bleep**.

Why would a recruiter contact you through Upwork?

There are recruiters on Upwork who establish a client account. First thing they want from the freelancer is the CV. If you do not provide it they move on and are no longer interested. There are also companies that offer writing and/or translation services for a large number of freelancers who also try to hire offside. Their profiles often show numerous job offers, zero hires and of course 0 Dollars spending (over years) and payment method not verified because they do not need any.

And now I've learned something new!  Thanks for that!
