Possible scam

I was contacted about an ad I responded to. I was asked to do an interview via Hangouts. The interview was relatively short and didn't ask questions or gave information that were specific to the job I answered. They said they would pay the equivalent of $35 an hour and they would send me a cheque to purchase a laptop from their vendor. This was the ad on UpWork  **edited for Community Guidelines**

Hi Konrad, 


Thank you for sharing this here. I can confirm that actions have been taken against the job post. 

I would recommend that you read up on these freelancer resources and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs, for help getting started, and for more information about working safely through Upwork.
