I am brand new to Upwork and I was asked for an interview from a company via Skype messaging today. They then proceeded to ask me to fill out a Google form that contains a question asking for my bank name at the end. I believe they are trying to scam me. Aren't all payments processed through Upwork? What should I do?
A real client will never ask you to give them money to start working, cash a check for them, work for free, or provide your personal information. I advise you to check this page for great tips that can help you stay safe on Upwork.
