Inappropriate job ads - what category to report?

I came across a job ad based in Canada that is looking for a virtual assistant with the ability to answer calls and emails... and one of the requirements is that the applicants are females comfortable wearing sexy clothing.  Not only is this absolutely against the labor codes in this country, but possibly (poorly) disguised as an X rated job. Not appropriate for this site I would hope. So as I'd like to see these types of jobs quickly escorted to the exit never to be heard from again, which category should I report this??

I always pick phishing/fraud if nothing really applies. It's sort of fraud, that they're advertising one type of job but mean something else--that's probably as close as you can get.

 

It won't really matter, because someone will read the ad when they get your flag and will note for themselves what the problem is.

Hi Shannon,

 

The job you mentioned is definitely violating Upwork ToS, could you please pm me the link so I could check if it has been already addressed by our team? You can flag the job as spam or choose another reason, since our team conducts a detailed review of all reported jobs.

 

Thanks for reporting.

I reported it last night under "fraud" and when I searched for it, it had disappeared so I assume it has been dealt with.  Sadly, when I looked at the ad it already had between 10-15 applications.  Be careful out there ladies.
