Is this a real Upwork contract offer or Scam?

Hi Guys,

yesterday, I received a marketing job offer and now this client wants me to do this. I'm not sure if it's a real job or a scam. Please help me verify. the client doesn't have a previous upwork history. The upwork contract already started. thank you

The client is telling me to do this - 
Danny:
I have sent detailed project information to email, after extracting there will be 1 instruction file and 1 data file including full information and project. unzip in windows desktop and winrar decompression app.
Password extract: marketing8888

Since we have project security settings, it may be confusing to some software on your computer
Unfortunately, for security reasons, all of our data is stored in a single format
We only need you to understand the depth of the data to be advertised to be able to start a contract, very simple, right?

Hi Sheabul,

 

I appreciate you reaching out to us for help. For security reasons, I advise you not to share your contact information before a contract. I recommend that you convince the client to attach the file to Upwork message center instead so we can scan it for any malicious content.

 

To assist you further, I've also escalated your post to a support ticket. One of our specialists will contact you as soon as possible and help you with your concern. Thank you for posting in the Upwork community.

 

For reference, you may check your ticket here.
