Can anyone tell me if I withdraw as a result of the position being a scam can I get my connects back? There are far too many scams on here and I'm losing most of my connects. Scammers are getting really good!
If you withdraw your proposal before the job post is closed, you will not get your connects back. However, once the job post is closed by Upwork team as inappropriate, the connects you used to apply for it will be returned to you. So it's better not to withdraw your proposal and flag the job as inappropriate.
