Is this a scam?

Hi everyone,


I am new to Upwork. I sent a proposal on a bid, did a written interview via the UpWork chat, and was offered the position again within the UpWprk chat. While I'm still marked as "an active proposal" in Upwork, the contact asked me to provide my full name, home address, contact number, and email address for my contract. I've attached a screenshot for review. Is this normal? It doesn't feel right.

Hi Brittany,

As a gentle reminder, please note that users cannot communicate off Upwork until a contract has been set up on your account (the client sent an offer, and you accepted it). It would also be best to visit these articles for more information on how you can keep in line with Upwork's Terms of Service when engaging on the website:
You may also want to read up on this Community article and these articles for more information about working safely through Upwork.
