The job listing is titled

To be honest, I don't know what is more of a scam - people like the aforementioned

Or Upwork for charging people just to submit proposals and then taking a 20% cut on their work.

Especially when you know that people will be spending credits with no idea whether the account is a scam or not!!

And now I won't get my credits back for this application because they replied to me...

Hi Robert,

 

We return Connects when a client closes their job without hiring or we find a job post has violated our Terms of Service. I can also recommend checking out this Post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs. Thank you.
