I am new to Upwork and I'm trying to get my foot in the door. I have been sent two interview invites for proofreading job. I thought this was great but then they asked me to send an email to a **Edited for Community Guidelines** address. I sent the first email and waited. Then they sent an email asking for name, country of residence, year of birth, do i have a verified paypal or Skill account, and do i have a reliable internet connection.
I looked at other upwork freelancer's posts about another cjinc address being a scam. Are these the same people? Plus I was send a message on upwork from two different clients that both had the same line " We appreciate your interest on our jobs. Please send us an eamil to**Edited for Community Guidelines**. Thanks".
The first person who sent me that Message withdrew her project but still sent me an email askng for my information.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please, do not continue communicating with this client. They are violating Upwork ToS and the team will take actions against these accounts shortly. Please, make sure you don't start working on a project without an active contract on Upwork and never accept payments outside of Upwork from clients you met on Upwork.
