Of course, you know not to interview over Skype. That being said, if you flagged the job, Upwork will take it from there. Good job spotting it!
And of course, receiving payment in any form other than through Upwork is absolutely forbidden, too.

re: " I asked a million questions of course and they said Upwork was monitoring the conversation and said only a few companies are allowed to do so... they said they worked it out with Upwork and I have nothing to worry about."
They are totally lying.
Upwork hasn't "worked out" anything with any companies that lets those companies send checks to freelancers to buy equipment.
These people just want to send you a fake check so that they can steal money out of your bank account.
