Newbie here..  Yep, I just wasted all my connects on what is turning out to be all scams.


Jeff, just a warning: putting in your profile that you're new to Upwork is going to make you a target for scammers. I'd delete that. It's also a turnoff for real clients. You don't want to draw attention to being new to Upwork. They can see that you have no previous Upwork jobs or very few Upwork jobs. You want to minimize the weaknesses and maximize the strengths.
