It is scam.

Report client then block him.

Speak only via Upwork before contract started.

If a client wants to communicate outside of Upwork, it is a thief waiting to steal your money. It is also a violation of the Terms of Service. Please read the Terms of Service and then read this advice from Wes. If you don't protect yourself, no one will.
