I was offered a job today and I'm really suspicious it could be a scam. Can you help me out? I don't have much experience as a freelancer or in the platform, having completed only one job.
So in summary:
- Job proposal was sent through e-mail, not via Upwork platform
- They are offering to send daily tects for translation and pay weekly (first week pays in advance)
- They asked me to setup an account in TransferWise (which I have never heard about) and gave a bunch of instructions to setup this account (payment would fall directly in my bank account)
- They said I would be using a marketing automation software, which is paid for, so they would be sending me funds to setup/download the software AND pay me for the hours spent training to use the software.
So, thoughts?? What should I make of all this?
