Account not verified scam.


Since one month now, I'm getting invitation of a job from not verified accounts, they are offering the same position (job) and they are asking me to contact them or from their whatsapp or Telegram.

I wish alot that Upwork stop them because I'm getting only invitation from those not verified accounts. And that's not fair because they are taking opportunities from other serious invitation from serious companies that they are interested to collaborate with me.

I'm willing to get new projects.

Please and I'm begging Upwork to stop any account not verified to have the possibility to invite freelancers because without verification they are only trying to scam freelancers on Upwork.


Best wishes,

The unverified payment method isn't the issue. It's the Whatsapp or Telegram contact information that's the issue and the first clue that the job is a scam.


Most new legitimate clients start with unverified payment methods, and many scammers also use verified payment methods.
