No, you should not agree to communicate off-site, and yes, the biggest reason not to is that they are probably not going to honor their promises.
Just stick within the framework and protections of the site. In most cases, those protections that ensure you'll get paid are exactly what the party requesting off-site communication is trying to avoid. Meaning, he'd love to find a way to get you to do the work without him having to pay you.
