HI Valeria, thanks for your comment.
I notice alot of jobs on Upwork, requesting assistance with their dropshipping business (whether it be via eBay, Amazon, etc).
Since dropshipping (aka "product sourcing") is in fact allowed on eBay, are you referring to the fact of being paid/performing the job OUTSIDE of UPWORK that is against Upwork TOS?
Electronics is one of the biggest risk items. You'll lose your account in no time. Just ask them why they aren't using their own account, and they'll tell you "blah blah I have limits and so much to ship blah blah."
They'll send fake products, and as soon as customers complain BAM you're done.
It's a dude too, btw. Ain't no "lady."
LOL yep, def a dude. Apparently from Spain.. but blue eyes, blonde hair..and goes by the name of ALEXANDRO.
Now.. I've heard of Alejandro.. and Alexander.... but THAT honestly, was my first red flag..LOL!
Seemed strange. I actually did my research FIRST on his name! Turns out, I was a bit ignorant and it IS in fact a real first name (I mean, look at my first name... it's not like it couldn't have been), but, it's origin is FROM GREECE.
Just an interesting red flag I noticed that maybe some wouldn't.. LOL.
Thank you for that!
(I created my Upwork profile a while back after YES TO ABOVE POSTERS, reading the T&C's. After a few months and after joining a couple of other sites.... I revamped my summary and just copied and pasted over from the others. Obviously, totally forgetting the restrictions, so thank you for your reminder. Has been removed since!)

REWARD: I make almost three hundred dollars for dropshipping. Not even having to complete listing details or photos myself. Most minimal amount of work to put in EVER.
The last person who came to the forum ended up having to pay back over $ 10000
There is exactly 0% chance of this being genuine, and it's as old a scam as the hills.
