I believe this is a scam.
They contacted me to invite me to interview. When I emailed the person I was supposed to schedule with, he mentioned "training" and a project rate higher than what's in the original post and higher than the norm. He asked if I do Google hangouts, and I said no, I'd prefer to talk on the phone but would first like to know more about the company and "training.? Then, no reply . . . This is the second scam I've seen in two weeks, as a newcomer to Upwork. Both involve "training"--which makes no sense for the nature of work. Thanks for looking into this.
