It's a scam.  Flag the job using the link at the top right of the post and move on to the next.  

And what about my connects which I lost while applying this job, as it was
posted at Upwork platform.

If Upwork removes the job as fraudulent, you'll get the connects back.

Thank you sir, I am previliged.
And I have to say some thing here. In every society, the people who help to catch frauds are rewarded. Do Upwork has any reward for me?

Hi Shahzad,


Thanks for reporting this to us. I checked and it seems that the Connects were already refunded back to your balance.


Thank you.
