Payment unverified

Hey there, Job posts that indicate "payment unverified", are they safe to submit proposals for? Thanks. Best regards.

Hi Alimi T.,


Are payment unverified Jobs Safe?

According to my experience...

I can't say all those jobs are unsafe or safe. But most jobs are not safe. If you apply for such jobs, do not start work until they verify. Tell them to verify the payment first.


Before starting the work...

Know what not to do here.

For Example...

  • Don't go outside UpWork no matter who calls you. Do the work in UpWork.
  • Do not share any of your personal contact information.
  • Don't ask for money/5 star rating in message box. and etc.

If you need an answer to any question, search your question first in the community. If you don't get an answer, post your question. Because you will get late reply when you post.
