Before you apply for a single job, read the Terms of Service and then read this:



After you have read all the information and understand it, then read this series: https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-To-Upwork-101/The-advantages-of-freelancing/ta-p/1084668


There are many online scammers waiting for people who don't follow the rules or don't even read them. Read about automatically tracked hours, manually tracked hours, and fixed-price jobs. Each has its own risks and benefits. The only hours Upwork will cover in a scam called a chargeback are specifically automatically tracked hours performed precisely according to Upwork's specifications.


The biggest mistake freelancers make is talking to the client before a contract is in place. Not only will you lose money, but you can also lose your Upwork account permanently.


After reading all the information I have included you still have questions, feel free to post them here. You have to protect yourself in business dealings because no one, including Upwork, will do it for you.


Please take this information and learn it. It is frustrating and disheartening to see people every day who don't follow the rules and lose money.


If you follow the rules and look for those red flags that tell you something isn't right - it is unlikely you will ever be scammed.


Good luck!
