I just got an offer too good to say no so I did a little research while completing the interview. I knew it was a scam but I was so pissed I wanted to know this person's name and location. Please see attached pic of his last message.

Joselito, did you flag the job as a scam? Please do if you haven't already.

Hi Joselito,

 

Thanks for reporting. The job and the client you reported have already been actioned as they violated Upwork ToS.

I got a scam today. Flagged it a couple hours ago but the ad is still up. Hope other newbies aren't falling for it.

Hi Michelle, 


I have followed up with the team regarding your escalation and the job has already been cancelled. One reason why you still have access to the job is because you have a direct link to the job post.
