Accidently Withdrew Proposal

Hi guys,

 

I'm new here (just started two days ago). I accidently withdrew a proposal for a promising job because I thought it was a scam because the payment isn't through Upwork and though the company is real, I couldn't find any information online about the Personnel Hiring Manager who contacted me via Google Hangouts. Now, I'm having second thoughts. Is there any way to undo or re-do a proposal once you withdraw it? Can you re-apply for that job or no? I feel like I shot myself in the foot and this mistake will come back to haunt me as I try to get clients on here. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Rulonda

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Of course not. That's probably the most important rule on the platform.  Never accept payment off site.  Ever.

Your initial thoughts are right. It's a scam.

Okay. I told them not to contact me anymore. But in the event that I accidently withdraw an application for a job post on here, is there any way to undo that? 

Unfortunately no. You will have to resubmit your proposal if you accidentally archive it.

No, it's against Upwork's ToS. Trust me, it's a scam. There are 20 page threads on here about that scam.
