Yeah, that's a scam. You were right.
In the future, there is no need to check on LinkedIn. Googling these company names and client names is a bad idea.
If a "client" wants to send you a laptop or get money from you, it's a scam. It doesn't matter what they're name is.
Until you understand Upwork and scams better, you should avoid googling names, because that is a big part of the scammer's plot. They want you to Google the names that they feed you.
Thanks Preston, i did went to LinkedIn and check the company and they have 500++ employees, everything seems true to me, but asking me to pay money first does't make any sense for me. And they offer a good pay, $39 an hour! Well, too good to be true.
Dragana, most Upwork clients are real, and most are great.
But scammers target newbies.
Scammers NEVER contract me. When you gain experience, they'll leave you alone.
