Hello, I submitted a proposal for a job, the client messaged me and asked for a small sample of the project, after which I got blocked. Is there anything upwork can do about this, let's say deactivate this scammer's account to prevent more people from getting scammed?

Hi Jesutofunmi,


I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. Clients can ask for test work/sample, provided it's not related to the project. I'll be sending your case over to the team so it can be investigated further. You may also want to have a look at these tips for avoiding questionable jobs.


Thank you,
