That's incredibly creepy.  I do hope you report that client/job.

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..

How can you do that? Have you ever done that?

If you were invited to interview, there is a link to the job post within the invitation.  Follow the link and then flag the job as inappropriate.

 

Unfortunately, however, if they just offered you the job without an interview, I don't believe there's a way to flag the post.  Maybe a mod can comment, in case I'm incorrect in that.

That's not just shady - that's frightening. Did they give you any details about the girl? Maybe you can contact her and warn her??

No, he did not manage to tell it to me because I said no very early. 

And I just reported the job to Upwork.

I just keep imagining one of my daughters being lured to another country under false pretenses.

He asked to alk by Skype - so obviously I do not have any screenshots as we talked by phone. Yesterday I suggested chat but he wanted the phone only.

When I do Skype voice interviews, I set up  my voice recorder and the whole convo is on my micro sd card. I download all my convos to my computer 'just in case.'

 Which would be inadmissible unless agreed to previously, and in most countries illegal.....
