I'm positive this is a scam, so I wanted to make the community aware of it.
I was recently contacted by someone promising $850 bi-weekly to create a client account and post jobs on their behalf. They said that because Upwork has a maximum amount of jobs they can post, they needed to recruit others to post for them.
I would like to send the specific user to the proper channels so that they get banned.
You may flag the user's job post, and the team will review it accordingly. Alternatively, you can send it to me as a private message with details of your exchanges with this client so that I can file a comprehensive report about it.
I'll wait for your message!
I'm sure Upwork will handle this proper way - good that you mentioned and warned others.
Client account is created by your own profile and by accepting this you would have been involved in who knows what with your own name and photo and as bonus almost certainly been violation Upworks ToS.
You probably knew this but I write it down to everyone that never ever let anyone use your profile directly or indirectly.
Plus 1700 $ per month only for posting jobs - absolutely something weird going on.
