Gmail Google Hangout - is this okay?

I just applied for a position and the person who messaged me said that I should get a Google Hangout ID and do the interview on Google Hangout. Is this legitimate? I thought everyone was only supposed to be on through UpWork? (At least that's what I read through the manual and readiness test).

You are talking to a scammer. He wants to steal money from your bank account.

Stop communicating with that person.

Hi Yae Eun,


Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I've checked the job you're referring to and it has already been taken down because it was in violation of Upwork ToS and action has been taken on the client account. 


Please, check this help article for more information on how to use the flag option found on each job post or message to report any suspicious or inappropriate content. Also, check out this post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs.


Thank you!
