Like Mary pointed out: All you need to do is use the "Flag as inappropriate" link button in the top left hand corner of the job post page.
Your connects will be refunded AUTOMATICALLY when Upwork removes the job post for violating Upwork ToS.
Now that you know how to do this, you won't need to use the Community chatbot or post in the Forum about any situations like this in the future.

Hi I recently received an invitation with this similar spiel, the client does not properly schedule an interview and passes you to a different person asking you to submit your resume as well (assuming to get more data out of you like phone numbers etc). This other person will tell you to do a chat interview in Telegram Messenger or Google Hangouts. They commonly post data entry jobs, administrative assistant that pays above the rate to lure unsuspecting freelancers. I've experienced these numerous times now & it's good that I stay vigilant & flag them asap but what about others? I'm used to Upwork being a platform filled with professional people & not scammers. Please let's stay vigilant especially if the client just recently joined Upwork. Research first before providing out of the ordinary information to clients.
