Submitted proposal got a response but job posting deleted


Hello!

I'm new to upwork and recently I was invited for an interview for a job that was titled "Voice over for explainer tapes" or something. I sent in my proposal with my voice samples and the client responded with "you've been short listed for an interview please contact this email to schedule the interview" I was about to write an email to the email that was given, and as I was trying to reference the message again from my proposal page it said the job posting was removed so Yiu can't view your proposal. This made me think was the job fake?

Probably got flagged by another short-lister for trying to communicate off-site before the contract was in place (it violates terms of service).  Sometimes people will be quick to flag them thinking it's a scam.  Not all of them are.  Just point out that it's against the sites terms and see how they respond.  After a while you get a feel for how legitimate clients respond and how scammers react.

Flagged. I think you may be refunded your connects, too.
