How to NOT get scammed on Upwork

Hey there, fellow UGC creators!

Upwork is a great platform to find freelance jobs, but unfortunately, scams do happen. To help you avoid them, here are some tips on how to not get scammed on Upwork.

First, look for jobs where the seller has Payment Verification and has spent some money on the platform already. This shows that the seller is serious about their business and is more likely to pay you fairly for your work.

Next, don't apply for jobs where the seller asks you to get in touch outside of Upwork right away. This is a common tactic used by scammers to try and take the conversation off the platform where they can exploit you.

Another major red flag is a seller with less than four stars. These ratings are given by previous clients and can be a good indicator of the seller's trustworthiness.

Finally, try applying to jobs that were posted in the last 48 hours and that don't have more than 10-15 applicants. This will give you a better chance of being seen by the seller and getting hired.

Remember, it's always better to be cautious and do your research before applying to any job on Upwork. Good luck out there and happy freelancing!
