Possible Scam and ID Verification

Hi Everyone and Upwork Support Team,

 

Just reaching out to the community of this person who may be trying to scam.  I just want to make sure the PDF isn't some sort of virus as I had clicked on it.  But so far nothing.  Their posting was also removed.  See attached screenshots.

 

Also with the ID verification now delayed,  what does it mean for the deadline?  I've provided the necessary documents and selfie but, my deadline is coming up soon.  Will that impact my account?  See attached screenshots.

 

Thanks,

Brian
