it is a known scam. Report them.

thank you.:) They want me to pay a work permit @.@

No work permit is required to work on upwork. You get paid by clients and not pay them instead. They just want to scam you of 24 dollar. They have no work for you. 

 

Stop communicating with them and report them to upwork.

 

I would suggest you to read help topics.

Flag the job post.  Don't communcate with prospective clients on Facebook, only on Upwork.
