Hi,

Can a client having a great amount ($40k) spent on their profile, be fraud? Can clients show fake amount spent on their profile? I have got hired by a client having Upwork plus batch and with high amount on money spent with High number of hires. Could this client be a fraud? His money spent is showing in crores!!

Possible. But unlikely.

No.

So here is the thing: You can't just ask if someone could be a fraud but not tell us why you think he might be a fraud.

 

Is there something he is doing specifically that makes you wonder if he is fraudulent?

What kind of fraud? Scamming you out or your money, not paying you, or using your work for fraudulent activities? You need to be more specific. 

But, as I contemplate this, the answer to all 3 is: I don't know.

Your message ended the hope I had for about 5 months now. You will rather be proud of yourself that you were smart enough to understand he was fooling you, i didnt. I kept tracking him, asking him payment for 1.5 months of work where i received only 5$ so far. He kept on delaying and used covid as an excuse. Today, when he messaged and asked for another job, i googled about him and found you. I am disheartened as well as angry at my stupidity. Though again, he was my first assignment and this mistake gave me 2 more jobs. But that doesnt mean i should forget the labor of 4hr per day for 1.5 months.
I request upwork to please look into the man, because i can no longer trust people here.
And thanks man, for writing this post and saving me from another mistake!!
