Yes, scammer. Report then block it.

All conversation before hiring must be via Upwork only.

Hi.

I don't really see a problem with making the test on a Google Sheets document as long as:

- It doesn't ask for personal information

- It doesnt ask for extended "tests" tasks (Especially translations or designs use common sense here).

 

If you don't trust the link, good for you, you can open a linux virtual machine online and open the link there. 

Can't give links, but you can search for "free online linux virtual machine" or similar.
