Account got hacked!

Account got hacked!

URGENT: My friend's Upwork account was hacked. Here are the details:


Two days ago, someone from Upwork sent me a file for a job. They seemed legitimate, so I downloaded it. Yesterday, this person gained access to my Upwork account.


They changed the login details first, so I couldn't log in after 10 PM last night.


Then, they sent the same file (which has a virus) to my clients. One of my clients messaged me on Slack asking about the file sent on Upwork.


Realizing I lost control of my account, I tried changing the password, but they changed the email too, so I couldn't verify my identity.


The hacker also tried to change my payment settings and withdrew around $2300.


I need urgent help to recover my account.I have all the proofs of client and also ready for video verification for my self. This situation is affecting my ongoing work contracts with clients(attching ss of my profile when i was logged in last time).

Please assist me quickly.
