An Upwork User is Impersonating Me

Hello Upwork community -- I'm a known personality in a niche open source software community.  Today I discovered there's user impersonating me on Upwork using my LinkedIn and Stack Overflow profiles  I discovered this because this person landed some work, but then ghosted their customer. I'd like to put an end to this but I'm not sure who to contact.  Does anyone know who I should be talking to?  (not posting details here out of an abundance of caution w/r/t to privacy, etc.)

Thank you Virgina -- whether it was posting here or reaching out to the upwork twitter account, the bogus account was handled swiftly.  I'm grateful there appears to be a process for this.
