FAKE JOB POSTING - DELETE THIS

I've had more than 20 fake job postings in the past couple of weeks - I wish Upwork would verify clients.

 

I've spent my own connect points on these fake postings. I should get my points back and get an award for flagging these.  This is a huge headache

Aaron,

 

Thanks for reporting the job posting. I'll follow up with the team and make sure it's reviewed and actions are taken.

re: "I should get my points back and get an award for flagging these."

 

Actually, you DO get your connects back.

 

When you flag a fraudulent job posting, you and everybody else who applied to the job gets their connects back if Upwork investigates the job and removes it.

Aaron - when you are new, pretty much every invitation you receive will be a scam.  Also Google Hangouts conversations are usually scams.  Please read up on scams before you apply for anything else to protect yourself in the future.

if you would have actaully read my original post you would have had a clue what was going on - clearly you didn't read it.  

never got my points back as of today -

Well, at least your account isn't suspended anymore.
