Her profile even says she's 14. SMH. How did that get approved?
Bots don't read the overview.
Also, have you ever seen a US based freelancer say they were not approved? No? Me neither.
PS: Edited to add: The profile is not approved.
So the question remains ... if new accounts are being looked at more closely, how did this profile get approved? It's rhetorical people ... just shaking my head a bit.
Or ... I guess maybe even if a new profile has not been approved, a scammer client can still contact and "hire" someone? Hmmm.
Miners CAN work on Upwork.
But they must use fixed-price contracts or manually logged time on hourly contracts. Because the time-tracker is not meant to be used as a time clock and can't track time without sufficient mouse/keyboard activity.
Ok, never mind. I read the terms of service and in Section 3.1, it states that to register for an account, I must be 18 or older. I'll just come back when I'm eighteen, I guess.
Ellen, while you're waiting to turn 18, take the time to read everything available on how Upwork works, how to get paid, etc. so when the magic moment comes, you'll be ready to go!
