I created a job listing and that gotten five proposals within Upwork, but just as many emails about the job directly to my email outside of Upwork.  Why is this happening?  Based on the terms of service, it seems that this is not a good thing.  Should I ignore the emails?  Report them?

Thanks for the follow-up Ted, feel free to contact me directly if you need further clarification and advice regarding the job you posted and the direct messages you've received.

 

Also, we'd strongly advise disregarding the messages you received outside the platform, asking you to hire and work with freelancers directly off Upwork, in order to stay safe and avoid compromising your security, and also keep in line with Upwork ToS. Also, feel free to provide any information in case an Upwork freelancer asked you to work outside the platform.
