Jay:
I am sorry that you were disappointed by this.

 

What can you do?

Nothing.
You need to let this go now.

 

You made a mistake, that's all. Learn from your mistake, and don't make the same mistake again in the future.

Dear sir,

Myself ruchit **Edited for Community Guidelines**, I am new on upwork. but i am professinonal designer and photo editor , I got message from Mr. **Edited for Community Guidelines** to do a job but there was a condition to do sample job first. I did sample work and gave him 9 pics after changing backgrounds (I liked my work too). Then he messaged me that he have some problem on upwork and send me link for creating new account on other website. But he again wants that I have to do some more sample work for him on other website. When I denied to do their sample work again on other website and said him to give the work on upwork he disline me. You can also check my conversation with him and my sample work which I did for him.


Your client is a scammer who has tricked you into working for free.

I think he's just trying to intimidate you with the threat of a bad review. It's blackmail. Don't give in to it and report his behaviour to Upwork.

Ignore him. If he actually initiates a dispute with Upwork, you can deal with it through their process.

How can the client (who never hired the freelancer, and is suspended) initiate a dispute?

And for what?

Or what / who are you responding to? (Maybe the OP - from 2017?  ... The dangers of indiscriminate thread merging...)

Oops, yes. Usually if the thread is huge I notice (not always) that it started eons ago, but this one was small enough that I took it for fresh.
