New fiverr scam, WARNING

Hey all, Recently I’ve been getting some messages of people starting a conversation and they say they have an offer, they then send you either a word document or a notepad file that is written in poor English.
It says something along the lines of “ Hello friend, I’m sure you have heard of upwork, I live in china and upwork profiles that are Chinese do not perform well, I am willing to pay you 500$ per week if you can create me a profile please send offer if you are interesting
I haven’t followed through as I already know it’s a scam since many many people have sent me the same message although I thought I’d let you all know just to keep your information safe, as it’s probably a fishing attempt.
