One of my Agency member recently received an invitation for interview. Clients history and spending are very strong and no one can judge that he/she is trying to hack freelancers account using Phishing technique.
When he received that invitation he informed me about that the download files are suspicious and I ask him to send over the file via intranet file sharing so I can check it. Though I opened the files in sandbox just for fun and sent lot of wrong information
When I opened the folder there were three HTML files for Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo customized for Phishing purposes, I just informed the Upwork help center about that client, I don't know how fast they will take an action about his account.
Look at client profile!!!!! **Edited for Community Guidelines**
After my initial reaction, this was my thought too. Why risk such a valuable account?

Me thinks the client is themselves a victim - maybe they have a disgruntled freelancer with recruiter priviledges.....
Na!!! He is not a victim I checked his history and other information by internet research that guy actually owns an IT business and provide services in Springfield, Massachusetts.

If anything, that broadens the field of suspects -- a disgruntled ex-employee for instance.
