Is the job real?

I was contacted my a client to interview for the job, the payment is verified and I’m just worried it’s a scam. My partner just fell for a scam so I’m unsure.

HELP

You have to give us something to work with here. If you link the job it will get cleared off by the mods so let’s start simple:
How do they want to interview you?
Why do you think they are scamming you?

They can’t scam you by talking to you anyway, there will always be a next step.

Zachary:

When I do not block my account (due to being too busy with current clients), then I am regularly contacted by new potential clients - out of the blue - people I have never heard of - who want to interview me for a job. They nearly always are very serous about hiring me and they want to pay me good money to do the kind fo work that I like to do. These are not scams. MOST clients who use Upwork are good people and behave professionally. Most are NOT scammers.

 

Nothing you are telling us indicates a scam.

 

BUT: If you are:

- a new Upwork user

- live in the United States

- an entry-level worker

 

...Then an unsolicited invite probably IS a scam.

 

If the client wants to talk to you using Google Hangout, then this is a scam.

 

Like Mark says.. what more can you tell us?
