Someone from Upwork posted a Date Entry job but is asking me to pay them to make sure I do the task. Is this legit? They sent me this:
Their names are Larry and Mary Johnson.

I would not pay them if they are requesting you to pay them to ensure you do the task. That does not sound legit.

Thanks for your reply, Joanna. I was skeptical as well. I'm new to Upwork, btw.

Upwork doesn't post jobs, clients do. Some of them are scammers trying to steal your money, like the one you were communicating with.
When you go to the doctor, do you ask him to pay you to make sure that he takes your treatment seriously?
