Suspicious Client Asked me to get money on Upwork and return that money using Payoneer

A client named **Edited for Community Guidelines** posted a normal looking job for which I submit a proposal. But then he invited me on Slack where he made an unusual request that he would pay me for my sample work and then I will have to return the payment to him using Payoneer. 

I have flagged his job and have obviously declined his offer.

Communicating outside Upwork before a contract is in place is a violation of Terms and Service all users (freelancers and clients) agree to when they sign up. You can find the Terms of Service at the bottom of this page.
