Re: Payment method linking to paypal

Hi I'm a member of the upwork community, I've done several jobs, and I've been scammed by you. After delivering the jobs as requested and in the time they demand. First, they say that the payment is immediate and as you prefer. Then at the end. To collect your work they ask you for fees and to link my account. Summing up free work and if I do what they tell me I get paid. I don't understand anything. If they steal through your website are they accomplices?

Hi Rodri,


You were not hired for this job and shouldn't provide any work until your client sends you an offer and a contract is created under your My Jobs tab. Please note that any request for free work is not allowed on Upwork, and it is a violation of Upwork's Terms of Service. I also encourage you to let us know if a TOS violation has happened by using the Flag as Inappropriate option throughout the platform. You can learn more about user reporting here.
