Help, there are people from Upwork contacting me

I don’t know what’s going on, I’m gonna be honest, I don’t know English very well, but some people are contacting me because they want me to create an Upwork account and try to use my computer in a strange remote way with a program, it would be an isolated case but i haven’t had any sell in Fiverr and 3 persons have contacted me for what I mentioned,
Have this happened to any of you? What should I do?
2 of them I denied them, but there is one active.

Hi @arigatoespacial, just report those users and block them. They’re scammers.

Yeah, thanks I suspected that from the begining, I was really weird that 3 persons from asia, all web designers from upwork just said the same things, I even did one call with someone that told me he was from Japan but actually sound like ¿Indian? 3 of them look like they wanted remote control of my computer, is such a relief that i denied them.

Look:

You’re most welcome!

Never do that again. You’re risking getting a warning or even banned. All communication must be held through Fiverr’s chat, unless you have permission from CS and only for very specific situations.
