Job posting said client is from US but it appears from China

Hi,

 

I am selected for this job **Edited for Community Guidelines**

 

I applied for it assuming the client is from US, as mentioned in the job posting. But, now when I checked his local time, it says he is from China. 

 

Is this a fake client? How can location be changed?

Hi Seema,

 

It is possible that the client has changed their location settings on the platform, or that they are using a VPN service to mask their IP address. This does not necessarily mean that they are a fake client, but it is a good idea to be cautious and verify their credibility before accepting any work from them. You can also use the 'Flag as Inappropriate' button to report any suspicious activity.
