New to VA work..

I just accepted my first job as a VA thru Upwork. I have only been working for a day and now my “boss” wants to put $$ in my personal bank account and then I pay the vendors with that. It seems weird to me that we can’t just pay directly thru his bank account. Anyone have experience with this? It raised a red flag for me but I am new to all this. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Kaisha- I can't speak for other companies. We're always looking for new talented assistants and there's no complicated payment process with us!

Be careful though so you don't fall into the hands of scammers

This is a scam. My niece fell for this despite me warning her that a company shouldn't require you to deposit their business funds into your bank account to pay vendors. Please be careful.
