Hi Nilima,

 

You should never pay in order to start working and should never accept direct payments. Please report the client directly to Customer Support and include all the relevant information you have, so our team could review and advise.

 

Please review these safety tips and our freelancer resources before submitting new proposals. Feel free to send me the job post link in a private message.

Is this job under your "My Jobs" tab?

 It really has nothing to do with Support, this is absolutely between you and the client. Do NOT buy any SIM cards or anything until the client has paid you for them, bearing the Upwork fee in mind. This means if the SIM cards cost $ 20 the client has to pay you $ 25.

 

I sounds like a scam to me..

Yes

Tell him to buy them and ship them to you, or he escrows the cost or pays as a bonus so you can go buy them. 

Your client can pay you via the bonus option for expenses. Keep in mind that bonus payments are also charged the fee.
