Fraudulent credit card charges

I did not have an account on Upwork until after I discovered two fraudulent charges agains my credit card earlier today:


Upwork -451361311REF

Upwork -451341179REF


Each of these charges was over CAD $1000.  I assume that whoever made those charges obtained my credit card information from a breached vendor's database, and is using Upwork to set up to set up two accounts in order to steal money directly.  I'm contacting the credit card issuer to cancel the card number, but I also want to report this to Upwork and hopefully stop the thief from continuing this activity.  So far, this is the only method I've found for reporting this fraudulent activity.
