The link that Melissa provided will tell you everything you need to know about how to get paid on the Upwork platform.
Read all the stickied posts here in the Freelancer community. Read the Terms of Service. Never begin work without a contract and never accept payment off the platform. If someone offers to pay you via PayPal, don't do it. If someone offers to send you a check to buy office supplies/equipment, don't do it. If someone asks you for your personal information (address, bank name, social security number, driver's license or ID#) don't give them that information, ever.
