if it said payment verified does that mean they are legit
Good question. Usually they're legit, but not always. You still have to make sure you get an offer and accept it before you do any work, and if it's fixed price, make sure payment method is still verified, because it could verified when the job was posted but unverified when the offer is sent. So to be safe, look at the reply Petra posted earlier with the flowchart before doing any work.
