Hi Kia,


I have checked your transactions and it looks like you funded $60 in Escrow, but released $40 to the freelancer. So $20 is currently still in Escrow until the contract is ended and you can request for it to be refunded back to you. Additionally, you issued a bonus payment of $20 to the freelancer which was taken directly from your payment method.


We'll also have somebody follow up with you as soon as possible.
