Yeah, buddy! You ain't kidding! I think that's the best we've seen so far. There are some out $5k here and there but $20k is the record I think.
i know i was just doing an interview with scammers..... they sent me an invite and i accepted then they told me to go to google hangout..... then after like 2 hours talking i was going to be hired. and then he says hes going to send me paymenty..... the last thing i said was that "this just seems a little off" and they stopped talking to me
If you get a chance, could you please click on my name and send me a private message with a screenshot of you communication with the client outside of Upwork?
I feel as though I may be in the midst of a scam. I was asked to take a check to the bank after talking on here, emailing then going to google hangouts to talk. After I got the check he asked me to take it to the bank (immediately) to withdraw funds for a western union transfer. Something seems off but at the same time its not the same as these other stories. What should I do here?
Hi Mary Daniela,
It's good to know that you haven't responded to any of their messages. I would suggest that you block off their email address from your email. I would also suggest that you read up on the links that Nina has provided on her post to help you work safely on Upwork.
