Hi Waleed,


Thanks for reaching out to us. Could you please send me a private message with more information on this as I couldn't find any message in which the client asked you to get paid outside of Upwork?

Please note that communicating outside of Upwork is not a violation of the Terms of Service.

Edited to add: According to the TOS change announced here, it's no longer allowed to share contact information before a contract is in place.


Also, please check out this post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs and please use the flag option found on each job post or message anytime you’d like to report a violation.


Thank you.

You should be careful with cases like this. I have encountered a scam on Whatsapp GB
