I'm new to Upwork and applied for multiple jobs already. I received a message from one of the jobs I applied and they said to contact them through a third-party messaging service (Telegram). I'm having doubts because I want to avoid being scammed. Should I go ahead and contact them through Telegram?
Solved! Go to Solution.
