Telegram Scam



Today I received a message on Upwork from **Edited for Community Guidelines**who asked me to communicate via Telegram with **Edited for Community Guidelines**, I contacted him and he asked for some information, he offered me a high payment (in this case, $2350) for retyping 5 PDFs and sent multiple links to download information.


As soon as I became aware of this scam, I knew I had to report it.

This is a violation of Upworks Terms of Service. 

As a rule of thumb, anyone who wants to initiate communication on telegram is a scammer. Especially in combo with a fantasy salary for an easy job.

Never go off site, and in addition, Telegram jobs are usually scams.
