I sent a proposal for a jobs. When they contacted me via text, the client wanted to do all payments/earnings outside Upwork. I find the listing sketchy, the listing also changed to "invite-only" & no verified payment method the moment I answered the message. I want to withdraw my proposal but don't want to lose my connects. Please advise.
Kamille, you need to flag the job as inappropriate from the Job Details page, and for the reason, choose work outside of Upwork. Then Upwork will eventually cancel the job, and your connects will be returned to you. I'm attaching a couple of screenshots that should be self-explanatory.
