I had one that was advertised as a customer service and admin role. When i respsonded to the initial message, I found out quickly it was total scam! The guy requested that we speak via google hangouts instead of via upwrk, and and would go on to ask me for my banking info! I quickly reported him.
Other proposals that have responded were sleazeballs requesting to chat on skype, and then asking me to join them on some 3rd rate dating app or asking if I have a BF.
Oh, I just had a super shady job offer - I had to make a job interview with one girl and recruit her for one EU programme's summer job. Well, the guy who did not even tell me his real name via Skype explained that it is supposed to be a "good prank" as they want to organise for the girl a surprise trip - when she arrives in this other country they would organise for her entertainment, etc.. Haha.. well.. I said, obviously, no..
