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!
