Please read the terms and conditions before moving forward on Upwork. You are not allowed to communicate off the platform without a contract in place. And yes, the "client" is running a scam. You don't have a job. Instead, the person wants to take your money and will keep asking for more. You will never receive any money. You can protect yourself and your account by following the TOS.

This is a very common scam.
