Hi Kingsley,

 

I'm really sorry to hear you had a bad experience with a prospective client. I found the conversation in question and will ask our team to take action against the client for using abusive and insulting language, sanctioned by Upwork ToS. Please stop communicating with this client and I apologize once again regarding the unfortunate incident.

Wow! The client deserves a permanent ban for this. I hope that is exactly the action Upwork will take against him.

Kingsley, I'm so very sorry that this happened to you.  The Client is an idiot!  As I've shared in several previous posts within other threads, I definitely believe in karma.  Please take solace in that.

That is unbelievable.  I hope he goes far away forever.  So sorry that you had to go through this.

Upwork needs to ban the supposed client - permanently.

It is actually great that they revealed themselves on time. At least you don't have a contract with such a person. I can imagine they are the kind of client who gives bad feedback out of sheer malice.

Kingsley,

 

I'm sorry that you were subject to such abuse. The client probably figured that since Upwork is not an actual company where you could report him to the HR department that he was free to say whatever he pleased. I do hope that Upwork takes swift action against them.
