Hello I received this email and want to know if any others have.  Is this legit?

William:

Save yourself some time.

 

ANY time you see "Google Hangouts" mentioned by a client sending you an invite, just stop communicating with that person immediately. It will ALWAYS be a scam.

Yes. Plenty of others. You wouldn't believe how many people receive this kind of messages.

 

Some are smart and dodge the bullet, others get their bank account wiped, nice and clean. What about you? Dodging or cleaning?

Thankfully I was smart enough not to give them my personal information!  Thank you for the reply.

Hi William,

 

The job has already been removed by Upwork team and now is in your Archived tab. Please, do not communicate with them any further.

Check out this post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs.

Thank you!  Good thing I checked.  It seemed too good to be true.
