Client's contract - security fee 50$

Hello, I am new to upwork. I would like to ask your thoughts about **Edited for Community Guidelines**. Have you heard or tried this company?. I've checked their website and the have already built their foundation. In Upwork platform, their payment was unverified. Their representative accepted my proposal and we had a communication thru chat in this platform. Part of their contract is that the freelancer needs to deposit a one-time refundable security fee worth 50$.(have not accepted the project yet). However, in the next day I checked, the job that they had posted in this platform was already deleted together with our convo with their representative. 

I'm having a feeling that this is already a red flag but still I want to hear your thoughts. Also, does demading for security fee is really a legit agreement with the client?.

 

Thanks for reading this. 

Stay safe.
