Hi! I received the following email from Upwork. Is this legit? The link goes to a posting but every time I try to submit I get an error message. How can I reach customer support directly? Thanks!   Congrats! You have been invited to submit a proposal!
Read more about the job below and submit a proposal if you are interested.

Hi Sarah,


It doesn't look legit to me, I mean why Upwork would invite someone for the job? A client invites a freelancer to look at the job he posted & send a proposal if matches his/her abilities. Were you notified on Upwork by this invitation or it reached on your email? I don't know what to say more but it's kinda fishy.

Hi Sarah,


I checked the job post you were referring to and it looks like the job is already closed. The invitation came from one of our Talent Specialists. It's possible that the client has already hired another freelancer for the job.
