This is the first time I read this, I have been on upwork for quite sometime, but I haven't received not even one job yet, however I have been in a number of interviews, designed for 2 clients.. who only came up with excuses later after receiving the samples, 

 

I was suspicious but because I have not received any clients, I sort of became desperate

"Buyers trying to use feedback to change the terms after the job has started, however, should be reported."

 

How, and to whom can we report them?

Despite an irrelevant dig at Trump, this is a very useful thread. Thank you. Smiley Happy

Thanks so much for that information. 

I just wanted to add that real non-profits have an EIN number that is searchable through the IRS. These are groups that have also had to pay a few hundred dollars to the IRS to become a charity/non-profit. Most also have to apply with 'bylaws' to the state they are established in, if it's not international or nationwide (more challenging). More money lol. I did that for my non-profit rescue which I'm now retired from and passed on to others.

Wow, that's a comprehensive list. It deserves to be highlighted or pinned.
