Did you flag them as inappropriate at the time?

If they are taken down you get your connects back automatically after a bit-

You do have to flag them though, or thaymight not get taken down

You don't need to ask to get connects back.

 

Connects are AUTOMATICALLY returned to freelancers if a job they apply to is removed by Upwork because the job is fraudulent or violates Upwork ToS.

 

If you have applied to a job that turns out to be fraudulent or otherwise violates Upwork ToS, then you may use the "Flag as inappropriate" link button to report the job.

 

Doing that will help the Upwork community, and it will help you too. If Upwork investigates the posting and takes it down, then you'll get the connects back.
