So, after posting my Too Good to Be True blog on FB and Twitter, my sister chimed in with a friend to say they think that job's a scam. Joey was with me as he was giving me directions to go to a site to set up at a bank to get paid...separate from Upwork or my Paypal...red flag #1. As I start the app., it asks me for my SS#...WAIT, WHAT?! Red flag #2. By now, I'm asking questions buying time while I'm searching Upwork how to lodge my concern that this dude might be a scammer. I'm also talking screenshots of e-mails, chats, and my original proposal that showed I'd offered to do the job for $50/project as opposed to the $300/week he offered...and, that he overrode in his acceptance e-mail. I looked in FAQ to find the violations rules. Not letting Upwork pay wages is a violation of Upwork policies. THEN, as I made him wait, he was getting irritated...red flag #3! You're outta there, Bud.
Anyhoo, I found where I needed to lodge my complaint and stated my case with my evidence, so we'll see. I haven't checked that e-mail today, and honestly, I don't want his shit. But, I figure if he really wants to get a hold of me, he'd drop me a message on Upwork, right?
Be good to each other.
