Communication via telegram, payment in different modes

Hi All,

I got message for two jobs which I gave proposals. They asked me contact via telegram, In telegram they informed me about job ($50 each for 20 images converting into Ms word) and also they said payment will be in PayPal, binance, etc.

Can you anyone advice whether this is scam or genuine.

Communicating with a potential client outside of Upwork is against Upwork's terms and conditions before a contract is in place. Payment outside of Upwork is also against Upwork's terms and conditions. This is most definitely a scam.

Here is the link to a great post about red flags and scams from an Upwork community member Wes that's highly recommended by Upwork to read.



Hope this helps to keep you safe!

Read the TOS. Yes, it's long. Probably longer than it needs to be. But read it anyway. Nine out of ten scams can immediately be written off simply by reading--and following--Upwork's terms of service.
