Hi Aaron,


I checked your account, and I was able to check the contract you're referring to. I have escalated this to our team for review and appropriate actions will be taken if violations were found. If you see a job or invitation that looks suspicious or inappropriate, you can flag it using the flagging option found on every job post or Upwork profile. You can read more on this help article and also, please check out Tips to avoid questionable jobs.
