Hi Mary Anne,

 

Offering or accepting payments outside Upwork is a serious violation of the ToS. If the client promised to send you a check or pay you in any way other than via an Upwork contract, please stop communicating with them. I'll also follow up with the team so they review the client's account.

 

Please, check out this post for more tips on how to stay safe on Upwork.
