What should I do when I have accepted a scam contract?

Hello, I just received an interview invitation for a graphic design job. everything happened very normally. The client asked me to show my work related portfolio and then he decided to hire me. but he sent me an offer using another account that he said was his employee. then he asked me to download a file from a fake website and he urged me to download it. I'm sure this is a scam. What do I have to do now? I can't report the employee account because only an offer was sent and no other messages were sent.


Hi Hung,


I see that you were able to report the client you're referring to. Our Trust & Safety team will proceed to investigate and take action based on our internal processes. Feel free to check out this page for some additional tips on staying safe on Upwork.
