Upwork experience?

Does anyone have experience with posting development projects on upwork?
I have a small dev project (not epicor related) that I was tasked with and given and I wanted to try it out.
My concerns are hiring a freelancer who is not vetted and potentially being scammed. I know that’s kind of out there but I wanted to see if anyone else has experience with using it and any pointer

I’ve used it in the past, get someone with a lot of reviews and it should be fine. Don’t pay up front (use escrow).

I assume Upwork handles the escrow for that? It’s definitely hard to know if someone is legit or not, but I did get like 5 bids for the project and there was a difference right away from just their responses.
