Ignore. It is a scam.

Thanks Tonya

I actually responded that I would be happy to communicate via the medium preferred by Upwork.  Couple hours later I checked back and there was no response.

Then today, I got the same message, with a few variations.

I took out the actual names in places and placed asterisks instead. 

Guess, I just won't follow up on the conversation then.

 

Thanks
