Freelancer id card

Im new to upwork and the recent job has asked me to get an id card made for payment processing. Now they are asking for id card activation. So far ive given them 8000 pkr. They arent refunding it and asking for more money before any further payment processing or returning money.


Hi Noor, 


Unfortunately, it looks like you were not hired for this job. Please keep in mind that you shouldn't provide any work until your client sends you an offer and a contract is created under your My Jobs tab. Please note that any request for free work is not allowed on Upwork, and it is a violation of Upwork's Terms of Service.

A real client will never ask you to give them money to start working, cash a check for them, work for free, or provide your personal information. 


I encourage you to let us know if a TOS violation has happened by using the Flag as Inappropriate option throughout the platform. You can learn more about user reporting here.


Additionally, I would recommend you check this help article and available learning paths in the Academy section to help you stay safe on Upwork.
