Currently have the same scam job posted in my feed sixteen times in the past 2 hours. Similar pattern all week. Why is this allowed? Why doesn't Upwork doing anything about this?
Upwork will tell you that they are working hard to address the situation around scam and spam jobs, and that they are dealing with a higher-than-usual volumes of scam posts. I think they are trying, but I also believe they are overwhelmed and can't catch most of them.
I guess I'm feeling really frustrated because I had them terminate a contract that I had already started working on claiming it violated terms of service, and I don't believe it did. And then I see all these very obvious violations that just get posted over and over and over. You'd think if I can catch them they could too? I don't get it.
Same here Caroline - at least 50% of the work that I've sent proposals for have been removed.
I'm new to this platform so I'm not sure how to identify scam posts - aside from the inflated rates.
