Yes, I'm new to Upwork. No, I didn't know there was a process flow to be able to see if it was a scam or not. Yes, I flagged the job as inappropriate. Sadly, I didn't think it was going to be that much of a problem. Sure enough, the first connection I get is a scam. They even used a solid profile on LinkedIn.
It sucks that when I typed "scam" into the search results here the number of results I got. 😞
I believe I found the job you are referring to and it has already been actioned by the team. Please, check out this post for tips and best practices for staying safe when applying for jobs on Upwork.
