Can my contractor charge me?

Hello all! I am new here, and I just got this offer where the contractor sent a pdf to choose the project I want to work on and in each there are the details how much is paying but aside there is a charge to make sure I complete the task. If everything in handled on time he returns the payment I make.


Is this something legit to do here..??

It's a scam....don't fall for it do not pay anything.

Let me guess.... the "client" (not "contractor" - YOU are the contractor), asked you to go on Telegram or Skype, and you agreed. Mistake number 1. Read this, then go through the Academy courses and learn how to use Upwork properly before you send any more bids. https://community.upwork.com/t5/Community-Blog/Top-Red-Flags-for-Scams-From-Community-Member-Wes-C/b...
