Thank you for the information. Just today I was invited for an interview and they had links to redirect me etc and I got to the Google site myself. Ended up having the interview and they were pretending to be a very large placement agency. At the end they were giving me the laptop, printer and scanner but I had to purchase the software and they would reimburse me immediately. I told them I felt this was not a valid job and to remove me from their listing. Considering I am new to Upwork and only have one very small contract, it was hard to do.
I am sure good contracts are just waiting around the corner for me!

what about companies that list they are looking to hire 88 freelancers. is this a scam?
You could be open minded or you could avoid the risk that it's in the .0000000000000001% chance of being legit
Hi lena, I have been recently asked to submitt a sample of my work to a client before i actually started to work. the clients email address is **Edited for Community Guidelines** From reading your post this is a free work scam! I hope that Up Work will handle this matter. I plan from now on to be carfeul of the offers that i receive.
It looks like that client has already been removed from Upwork. If a client requests free work or offers to pay outside of Upwork in the future, please flag their job posting as inappropriate or submit a ticket request to report them.
Last question, how do you submit a ticket request because I tried to and for some reason didn't see the option to submit a ticket request for my issue so that's why I had to use the forum.
Thank you for providing the ticket request "How To'
