Hi!

 

It's my first here on Upwork. I got 1 Active Candidacy. In my message, the client wanted me to download a software and follow their instructions on the message that they sent me. Is that really how it works ? Is that legal? I don't know if I should follow that or what. Please help. Thank you!

Hi Ma. just make sure your client's payment method is verified and i suggest you to don't install any software until you accept the offer.

don't start working untill the escrow is funded 

 

and if it's a captcha typing job then forget it it's a scam.

 Hi Ma.

 

Do not download anything at all. Apart from the fact that you are likely to get all sorts of malware on your computer, The job is a scam and you must report it to customer services. Don't go any further with this so-called client.
