Today (4/4/2020) , A guy name**Edited for Community Guidelines** from upwork asked me to share my upwork credentials and acess teamviewer in exchange of money which is 10% of the money that he will be earning with that account. Then I asked him why he can't do it with his account, He told me that he want to access the Europe network so that he can earn more money. He send me a sample contract when he signed with another guy which I am attaching. He also asked me to sign the contract for renting the account. To get more out of him, When asked to share the ID details or documents, he was reluctant to share that.
I seriously want to report this illegal activity and please try to find this guy and shut his account permanently as soon as possible.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Why did you let someone else use your Upwork account?

Thank you for answering my question as to what actually happened.
That is a real problem, and I hope a moderator will reach out and get all the details from you. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that you will be given your account back, because what you did was in violation of several of Upwork's terms of service, which you agreed to when you signed up. Selling or renting out your Upwork account, letting someone use your Upwork account and variations on the theme for payment are obviously not ok.
It's good that you reported it, so all those fraudulent accounts can be closed down and permanently banned.
Could you please send me a private message with more information about this along with your Upwork username or registered email address?
