2 "Potential Employers" may be scammers

2 Employers reached out to me via email on May 11, 2020, & May 12, 2020 (1 via an Upwork email and 1 via their personal email), I'm afraid that they may be scammers. I am new to Upwork and have never worked therefore, I have little to no experience with how it works.

I emailed some basic information to one of them (I.e Full name, address, and telephone number). Any advice on how I may figure out if they are legit or not? Thank you!

Hi John,

 

Clients have the ability to send freelancers an invite to apply to their job posts. You do have the option to respond to the job invite, or decline if you are not available. You might want to check out this post about Tips to avoid questionable jobs. Please also check out the freelancer resources we have compiled here, which is designed to help new users on Upwork. Let us know if you have further questions. We're here to help. Thanks!
