Same here, approached me on Skype, quite inquisitive, even started up a conversation to make himself (themselves) credible. I haven't been so active on Upwork so he started his argumentation with that, and how my profile can benefit and all that ... I blocked him/her/them.

These people are operating all over. For instance they are advertising for web developers and when you respond they ask you if you have an upwork account and then offer you something in return for its use. Two recent examples I encountered; an individual on an IBM slack channel offering to share 15% of his earnings in return for use of my account and an individual on airtasker offering £30 per week for 'web development' revealed in a public message that the offer was for use of an upwork account.
Same! The person reached to me on Linkedin, I had a zoom meeting with him and he did not turn on his camera and asked me to provide my Upwork account credentials so he can use my account because his was suspended..... I told him no thank you. It was odd and had every scam sign imaginable. I believe he was in Serbia
