Edited Translation Project

They want me to pay a refundable insurance fee ($50) and they sent me a file with all the details, there it says the company's name is**Edited for Community Guidelines*. I've never heard of it but when I googled I saw that it is pretty well-known. Do you think it is legit?

Hi Irem,

 

Please keep in mind that you don't need to pay anything in order to be able to earn on Upwork. I would also like to clarify that offering or accepting payments outside of Upwork is a serious violation of our TOS. 
Our team will review the client further and will take proper actions immediately. Check out this Post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs. Thank you.

Basically, if you don't violate Upwork's terms of service by communicating with prospects outside the platform or giving them your contact info, you avoid almost all of the scams. As a pleasant bonus side-effect, you also avoid losing your Upwork account for breaking the rules 😉
