You worked on it without actually being hired with a contract in place? If so, that doesn't mean the job is fake, it just means you should read and understand how to work safely and get paid.

 

If you were hired, did you track your hours if it was an hourly job, or was there a funded escrow in place for a fixed rate job?

 

ETA: If the client asked for free work, that is against TOS and the job should be flagged.

I was hired but he stops track when I have done job.
The most important thing is that, he posted a job on Austrian account at that time but now he is shown as in Cyprus.

Hi Arlo,

 

I checked but couldn't find the contract you are referring to. Could you please send me a private message with more information on your report so that I can check? It's important to note that you should never start working without an active contract, which would show on your My Jobs page.

Feel free to check out this post for more tips on how to avoid questionable jobs and use the flag option found on each job post or message anytime you’d like to report a violation.

 

Thank you.
