Connects used in scam!

I used most of my connects in scam posts. All of them were different but the reply was the same: someone asks you to send them personal information via Telegram. When I told them I knew this was a scam ( I have seen the same on other pages) they declined my proposal or took down the post. 

I want to get my connects back but it's IMPOSSIBLE to talk to a real person to get help. 


I reported all the posts but my connects are not back. 


Hi Almendra,


I looked closely at the job you're referring to and confirmed that the Connects used in submitting your proposals have been credited back to your account. You may validate this by going to your Connects History page.


Please remember that we return Connects when a client closes their job without hiring or we find a job post has violated our Terms of Service. You can find more information here. Thank you for reaching out and cooperation in keeping Upwork a safe environment for your career.
