fake postings?

does anyone get responses to proposals similar to this? I have been getting them for the last few months. I am pretty sure they are fake accounts. I reported this one. A waste of time and connects!

Hi Bruce,

 

Thanks for flagging this for us. I've checked and Connects were already refunded to you as the job has been taken down because it was in violation of Upwork TOS and action has been taken on the client account. You can check this under your Connect History

I got the same request but wasn't able ot find the profile on the site to reply. Not sure if it used any of our connects. Emailed him directly asking to work via Upwork and got a response that is nearly identical to the original proposal. Very weired!

Hi Alexander,

 

I'd like to check this for you. Please send me a PM with more information by clicking on my name. Thank you.
