Important question about hiring managers and freelancer

Should the hiring manager ask the freelancer to send a  registration fee before the freelancer can start the job?

Hi Chrisana,

 

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Clients should never request any type of payment from a freelancer. I'll go ahead and forward your report for the team to review and take action as per our processes. If you see a violation of the Upwork Terms of Service, we encourage you to report it

No. It sounds like a scam job.

It happened to me twice, so because of that I have not gotten a job as yet and scared to try another because I was not comfortable sending a fee.
