Wednesday, May 20, 2020 Swapnil P. Employees SCAM


Swapnil P. is a dis-honest freelancer employee from India that works at UpWork, his Skype ID is: websitedesignanddeveloper

Employers should always be-aware if employees who are scammers, such as 
Swapnil Patil.

Swapnil Patil IS A DIS-HONEST employee, here is the feedback that was left to him recently on Upwork:

“MOST DIS-HONEST employee we’ve ever had, where a certain task takes 5 min to complete such as a simple contact form on the website, he said it takes 10-12 hours, and when asked how long it will take to create a simple About Us page and we showed him a sample he said 6-7 hours! when it only takes a max of 30 mins. to complete, so we decided to terminate his employment. Many employers don’t catch on to this, Employees can fool Employers by working very slow to make the hours count very high! BE-AWARE!”

UpWork employers should NOT trust UpWork due to the Work Diary provided by Upwork.

Employers usually believe and think that just because Upwork provides a Work Diary, then there is no way for employees to slack off on their job.

Employers need to understand that the Work Diary is not enough to trust employees on UpWork, the employee can simply just move the mouse back and forth and use the keyword to record fake keyboard clicks that will make the work diary show as valid, when they are not doing much work.

The best way to trust your employees is not by just checking the Work Diary on Upwork but by forcing your employees to access your computer remotely through TeamViewer or other Remote Desktop application, where you can monitor their work in real-time!

But of course many employees will decline working through teamviewer or other remote software and will provide fake false excuses saying they can not do that because teamviewer will be too slow, or other false reasons.

My advise is that if the employee that you hire online, does not wish to connect to your PC to work remotely then find someone else! Because most likely that employee is not honest and has something to hide, an honest employee will accept it and will do it.

If you are worried about giving access to your computer via teamviewer or other Remote Desktop application, then you may install a virtual machine on your computer, Virtual Windows which is a separate operating system and then you can ask them to connect to that teamviewer or Remote Desktop application that’s installed directly on that VM instead, so that way they won’t have access to your main system as this will be separate.

If you have any questions, comments, complaints, reviews, or scam reports about UpWork, Swapnil P. or any Upwork employees please post them in the comments section below.


  1. Freelancer Swapnil P. from UpWork messaged me saying he managed to get his negative feedback removed! I was very shocked when I noticed that, I’m very disappointed with Upwork, they removed the negative feedback without letting me know, this proves Upwork feedback system can NOT be trusted and Upwork freelancers can lie and scam their employers.

  2. Here is what I just sent to Upwork: Dear Upwork, I was very disappointed to see that the feedback I left for the dis-honest employee Swapnil P. was removed. This freelancer scammed me, I left an honest feedback for him but he somehow managed to have it removed by you. I am writing this to appeal this and would like to request from you to consider placing the negative feedback I left for him. Kindly provide me with your final position on this matter. Thank you.

  3. Trusting solely on Work Diary on Upwork isn't enough. Using remote desktop software like TeamViewer can help monitor work in real-time. If employees refuse, it's a red flag. A separate virtual machine can also be used to avoid giving access to the main system. Don't risk hiring dis-honest employees.
