Hi guys. So, I submitted a proposal, and I'm currently having an interview.
The contractor asked if I could run a small test which is no problem for me but meanwhile the Job Post was removed. As soon as I was aware of that, I messaged the contractor because I was worried - in case of payment how would that work.
She said there was an unknown problem with the job posting and I shouldn't worry about that.
So what do you think I should do now? Report it? I thought I would wait to see if I was hired, but I feel bad thinking that this could be a scam and another person can get scammed.
Thanks in advance for your help.

You are the contractor (freelancer) and it is a violation of Upwork's terms of service for a client to ask a freelancer to do free work ("test") so that may have been the problem.
Is your interview on Upwork?
