I can't tell if this is suspicious

New to this UpWork freelnacing thing and had my first interview and got hired for a job that I think to be suspicious.

 

The following are reasons as to why I think they are suspcious:

 

-asked me to have a interview/breifing on Google Hangout. So create username or use one that I already have.

-during the interview chat on Hangout they asked a few questions that I thought were actually good interview questions and then right away hired me

-said they will send a cheque to me to purchase office supplies and also a signing bonus 

-they also said that they will send me a W4 form and that I have to fill it out and send it back 

-client has only been on UpWork about a week and payment method not verfied

 

Does anyone have any insight on this??
