How do I block spam proposals?

Unfortunately, it’s not currently possible to block proposals from a particular freelancer or agency. However, with your help, Upwork can limit repeat occurrences.

When you receive spam proposals, please report them. We’ll take action against those reported who demonstrate an inappropriate pattern of behavior. For maximum effect, please perform each step below when you receive spam proposals:

  1. Report the cover letter as spam.
  2. Decline the proposal.

Completing these actions will send the information to Upwork so we can investigate and take the appropriate action.
