I received an invite to interview with information on how to contact their HR person, which would be on Gmail Hangouts. They note that once notified, the job post will be closed on UpWork. And it was. You can no longer view it. This raised a red flag with me. Anyone know if this would be legit?

It is a scam, Gmail Hangouts = scam.

Stop communicating with them and move on.
