I would imagine that they can access any part of your computer they want if they are using any kind of remote desktop connection which it appears they are wanting to do, including installing software.

Hello,

 

it has happened to me on more than one occasion that people from other freelancing websites ask me to give them my UpWork account. I have never agreed to it as I do realise it could, and probably is, a scam.

 

I would like to understand why they do this. I'm curious.


 Use common sense.  Why do you think a person who is total stranger suddenly is in love with your profile and use it?  If they really like it they can create an account and have more flattering profile than yours.  But they are asking you becasue they can't create a profile on Upwork.  Upwork locked the doors for them.

And btw they manipulate you saying you are pretty which has nothing to do with work or professionalism. I got messages from two users inn freelancer.com. Is there a way I can report them on freelancer ?

Hi Bojan,

 

Great Day to you.

I am just writing these as i have been asked already for the 4th time.
Luckily i found these article let me know if where i could report these kind of people.
They are really growing specially all is working from home.
I hope this can be resolved by Upwork.

If you are unable to file a ticket directly with the support team, you can send me a PM with more information so that I can report this to the team.

Thank you for flagging this here.
