The freelancer **Edited for Community Guidelines** keeps fooling and cheating, they charged me $7250 in front for "Resource Allocating", the first milestone is supposed to finish in 4 weeks, now it has been almost 5 Months passed and we received only several screenshots from them, they told us they did not have enough resource to do my project, I need Upwrok to help to get the $7250 refunded, it is a nightmare to work with this company!
We will archive all the messages back and forth to a pdf file so that you could see how many excuses they already gave to us and they quibbled for the serious delays.
Good Morning!! Thanks for getting involved to solve the problem!
The contract ID is: 20862295 $29,000
As you can see there are 10 milestones in this contract:
We are so upset and disappointed that they waste us almost half year since the start of the job discussion, is there a way to punish them to pay us the wasted time besides the full refund?
Mary, there was another client who went through the exact same experience a few months ago. Here's that thread:
I *really* hope it's not the same freelancer in both instances, because freelancers who rip off clients on the pretext of allocating resources should be permanently suspended.
I filed a dispute against **Edited for community guidelines** about two months ago, then the Freelance begged me to withdraw the dispute and promised ume to do a better job, but as you could see, another two months passed and they still only gave us several screenshot with almost no progress, the job was started on October 6, 2018, the first sprint was supposed to be finished by about November 2 based on their milestones. This time we decide not to be fooled further, otherwise they dare to hold us for 10 years.
The worst yhing I did was that we paid them the Resource Allocate fee in front, so they almost kidnapped me and make me in very bad situation, I wasted 5 months on them besides the $7250 paid.
They confirmed that they received our hardware device on October 20, 2018, the USPS tracking number also showed delivered, now they told us they did not receive our expensive hardware samples.
Thanks for your help!
I got the name of the agency before it gets modded and YIKES those reviews. Wow. This is why I strongly believe clients don't even look. I can't believe they are still holding on to 89% JSS.
Won't mention the hourly rate but they're what you'd expect for bad word.
Hi Jennifer, thank you!
I wish I'd have read the feedback of the other clients about **edited for Community Guidelines** before I hired them, they actually have so bad feedbacks for jobs with large money, they do have good feedbacks with very tiny jobs like $50, $120,..., most of them were "No Feedback Left". These were what the others told their nightmare stories and exactly the same kind cheating to us:
