This one has a fake photo lifted from another website. I flagged her and provided the URL of the site, but no reaction from Upwork.

 

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

Also the first line of her his overview is very popular:

 

"As one of the top voice over and audio providers on freelancing sites"

 

Ticket 25734338 opened.

 

I don't even understand why Upwork doesn't run an automated similarity check across the database from time to time...

I reported some loser on Reddit who was dumb enough to advertise his profile. Posted on reddit that it's a purchased account.  He deleted the thread but I reported the profile and even left in the notes that in his reviews he has someone calling "her" "Edna" and the country changed to Kenya. Profile still up.

I have also followed up on your ticket, and have escalated it to the team for their review, and have added some other freelancers that I have found through the freelancer search you shared, and through Google search.

I'm referring to all of the jobs starting with the OP on May 25 until the last reply on June 3. It took 10 days to do something to all of these same profiles? I'm also referring to the very last post ( Renata) where now some of the jobs have just changed the dates of graduation and are still up.

The one we identified is now set to private. 

A bigger issue with a few of these is that they have been using stolen photos. I contacted someone in Australia because the person who stole her photo for a UW account also set up a LinkedIn account under the same name (probably fake), also using her photo. 

It makes me wonder if there's an article or a video circulating about how to get your profile approved that includes a profile template.
