Received Job Invitation, Was Asked To Write Unpaid Sample

I am new on Upwork and recently started receiving an influx of "invitations to interview." The influx itself makes me skeptical. I declined two of them out of hand. One of them I decided to follow. The first thing that happened when I asked for more details was that I was given an email address to contact offsite. All communications look very legitimate: no abnormally high rates of pay or requests to buy something to review it and then receive reimbursement. But they did ask for a new, unpaid writing sample on a specific subject. Between the off-site contact and the unpaid writing sample, I am a bit skeptical. Can anyone help?

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Asking to communicate outside Upwork is not an issue

 

Asking for free work is a policy violation (NOT allowed) and deserves to be flagged.
