OK, I flagged it.

Is there anything else I need to do other than Flagging the job?

Yes, you need to edit/delete the message info in your post immediately (or a forum mod will), because that is not allowed. I'm not surprised it was a scam. It might help to read this:

OK, I edited my message here. Is that what you were suggesting?

In case it wasn’t clear, I have done nothing to violate the TOS in my communications with the client.

Looks like the client is no longer with Upwork. Should I cancel the Proposal or keep it as a reminder of who it was in case he comes back?

doesn't matter. The proposal will be archived by upwork after 30 days of inactivity and move into your "archived proposals" list. 

So, just forget about it.

OK, thank you.

 

I will keep chugging along. I'm not discouraged that of the 5 jobs I've applied for, 2 have been busts and the other 3 clients never replied to my app. That's actually a better percentage than I'd gotten from making job applications for full time and part time jobs before finding Upwork.

 

With those, I am 0 for a gazillion.

 

That's either an approximation or an exaggeration.
