not real job? what do you think?



I hope you`re all well!

I want to open a discussion about some invitations that I received on Upwork. This job (attacked + the messages from the client) is about calling on 4 digit number (sneaky - in my view). I am new to UpWork and I don`t have any clients, so far, this is another reason that I believe this is not real.

I reserve my right to believe that those gigs are not real. I need your opinion too.

Also, if I don`t feel comfortable accepting the invitations, are any repercussions on my profile?
