Receiving job invitations for jobs not listed in my skill set

I am receiving invitations to apply for jobs listed in the aree of quality assurance and testing. While I have some quality experience, I am not qualified for the jobs they are sending me, nor do I want them. I am a copywriter. 1. I do NOT have this skill listed in my skill section. 2. I have NEVER applied for one of these jobs. 3. They are always listed from clients in Dubai. I receive these job invitations on a regular basis--sometimes several of them a day. It's getting annoying and if I overlook declining them my response rating will be impacted. Why am I getting these? How do I get them to stop? And for goodness sakes, why are they ALL from Dubai??! And while I am getting a ton of these invitations, I'm not getting as many copywriting invitations. I get some, but not as many as the QA jobs. Am I set up incorrectly in the system somehow?

It sounds like you are getting invites from the * team (* alphabetic letter). If this is the case you can actually contact oDesk and opt out of their invites.

"It sounds like you are getting invites from the * team" Or one of oDesk's many mad robots (euphemistically termed algorithms)...
