lol yeah, they do it on blackhatworld too. Some idiot posted his profile on bhw asking to buy reviews. I reported it to Upwork because the guy posted his profile like an idiot and nothing happened. I even got an infraction for telling him that I'm reporting him for ruining the platform! lol Cuz the mod there sells reviews to these scumbags.

 

it's frustrating, because these losers are what give us a bad name.

Hi Vlad, I did. I sent a support ticket IIRC. Linked them to the forum thread too.

No they don't. They literally don't drive you at all. They don't even give themselves a bad name. The people that want to work with them, work with them. For you, my guess is, you care to much. If you want my advice, and I'm not saying you do, but if you're asking for my advice it would be too choose to care less or care more. At the very least, be consistent. That's what I'm striving for. Again, you don't have to take my advice. It's just my opinion.

They are just scammers to stole Upwork profiles of others. They first ask for an Upwork profile to buy or on rent. When someone will send his account detail, they will change everything. And you lost the account. I always advise my friends to keep away from such people.
