Phishing Attack on Upwork

I’m looking for freelance projects on Upwork time to time. A lot of the projects on the this and similar online platforms are poorly described, and customers very often are looking for cheap work and don’t bother about quality. But sometimes a miracle happens and good projects with realistic thinking customer can be found here.

Not today … today someone tried to steal my and other freelancers Upwork accounts. The case was quite simple, just link to the site which was designed as Upwork with password and username fields, but someone could enter credentials by mistake. Therefore I’m sharing this here.

Here is a short video with situation description:
