I did not try to cheat the system...I got contacted by the freelancer.   As a first time user, and NOW LAST time user.  We just continu the communication. 

If the Upwork freelancer  community cheats and goes outside the box,  Is NOT the fault of the employers who uses Upwork once in while.   

 

I feel like a lot of people here a fast blaming the customer.

Sylvain,

 

Upwork ToS require clients and freelancers to keep all the payments on the platform. It's done for the security of our users and their funds and it also allows them to benefit from Upwork Payment Protection. Moving payments off platform isn't only a violation of Upwork ToS but also means that the payment won't be covered by the Protection.

 

Please, refer to this help article for more information.

Hello Valeria

 

thanks for the reply,  If I post again, i will make sure to stay within Upwork. That is the reason I came here in the first place. BUT after reading the bashing from a few freelancers, !   ?  If some freelancers are going around your system, they're to blame.  Not the one that comes here for the first time and are mislead.

Sorry you feel this way, Sylvain. We do expect all our users to follow the ToS they accept when they sign up for an account on Upwork.

I just open an account and posted a job.  May be some people should have the right to answer or speak their free mind when It comes to business.  Calling ''respectable'' freelancer not to work for me was just too much

Familiarity breeds comtempt.

 

The longer the contract, the more the freelancer is taken for granted.

 

No raises, no perks. Just whining. Time to move on.

I don't believe I made an assumption, Brian. I responded exactly to what was said...it was said the freelancer went under the Upwork radar and was paid direct. How did I make an assumption?

Brian,  this makes no sense and I have to agree with what Irene wrote:

"I am going to say what people may be thinking but not 'saying'.

 

To me, this sounds like a long-term contract that went well for a long time and then turned sour towards the end. Are you giving bad feedback because the relationship went south at the end, or because, for 24 months, you accepted substandard work?

 

 Those 24 months seem a loooong time to realise someone was not what he or she claimed to be."
