Recently I got a message from a freelance site where a guy wanted to work with me long term.

He said that "last year in my country most users were blocked from Upwork. Therefore currently I can't work on Upwork.com. If you help me, I will pay 5% of my earning on your account monthly."

The term is, he wants to use my Upwork account through TeamViewer.
I'm not sure what to think about this. Has anyone done anything like this before?
And what you'd think if you got an offer like this?

Oh jeez

If anyone asks to use TeamViewer, just take it as a red flag and avoid them.

Definitely agree with the advice so far on this world.

Upwork's team is not 100% perfect, but if you don't provide them with a paper trail to follow to help you if something goes wrong, they can't exactly do anything about it.

Letting a stranger on the internet you’ve never met in real life control your computer via team viewer, might as well let him bang your wife.

Hehe right! :D thanks for the very good point. It's just easy to experience fomo, and now I understand why people get scammed so easily.

Lol.. "[name] can no longer be contacted. This will not affect your response rate."
Took only 3 hours and an account was deleted :D

That was a close one. So I guess I should not believe the Nigerian Interior Minister who needs my bank account information to transfer $10mm and will give me 10% as a courtesy fee?

If he sends you a pic of his new Mercedes maybe then.

But, if you decide to do either, please send video :smile2:
