Fake jobs post are increasing day by day on Upwork

**Edited for Community Guidelines**


Just including them from my front page where I can see 20 jobs.

They are asking for payment outside of Upwork or telling contact via Telegram or Whatsapp.

We are very worried about that, as a freelancer my only business is that and some fake and dishonest people are disturbing the upwork and also decreasing the upwork polarity worldwide.

Can Upwork take any action to prevent this types of Jobs post so that we feel better to work here?

Yes, fake jobs post are increasing day by day. Upwork has been aware of this for months and is supposed to release a statement about what they are going to do about in a few weeks.

By doing nothing, Upwork has been de facto "releasing a statement" each day about what they are going to do about it.

Agreed. Silence is often rotten rather than golden.


Hi Jahangir,


Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'll go ahead and forward your report for the team to review and take action as per our processes. If you see a violation of the Upwork Terms of Service, we encourage you to report it.
