Need guidance

I have sent a proposal today .

A person accepts it and send me job offer and in that message hi gave me telegram username of her assistant manager . 

when I text her to get details she told me to deposit 50$ first then after the completion of task you will be awarded for your project fee and you can also withdraw your 50$ which you've deposited as a security charger. 

All these transactions she told me to do using easy paisa account . 

isn't it looks like fake ? what should I do ?

Communicating outside Upwork before a contract is in place on Upwork is a violation of Upwork's Terms of Service. Accepting payment outside Upwork is also a violation of Upwork's Terms of Service.

 

You can find the Terms of Service at the bottom of this page, and go through the Academy ressources at the top of this page to learn how the platform works before sending more proposals.

Hi Muhammad, 

If you're new to Upwork, this is a good article to familiarize yourself with.

 

It will help you identify common scams so you can stay safe on the platform.
