I can glean from your post that your tension stems from the fact that you are a bread winner and you are expecting that you will get paid for the work that you rendered. Apparently, however, there seems to be a conflict as you seem to have violated a protocol - completing a job for a friend using the platform. What adds to your pain seems to be the fact that the money has been released by your friend a.k.a. client and you are unable to withdraw any amount which might be based on your claim that you do not have an approved profile.
Hi Valeria K and everyone,
I hope someone can help me with my first post above. I'm sorry if I have to post this second message. I just want to solve this issue as I am feeling depressed now with this difficult client. I also need to be able to withdraw my earning to survive and to provide to my family. Below I copied my original or first post:
Hi Valeria and everyone,
I would like to ask help for my case too which is the same "Financial transactions have been limited".
1. I asked my client permission before I did the task on that day. He approved it and I worked on it. The next day he was asking me to prove that those billed hours are really worth it with what I have finished on those tasks list. I explained it to him but he doesnt accept it so we came up with an agreement that I will work on the other tasks on the list and provided him an update without billing those hours to him.
2. I did my part on that agreement and submitted the report. He then ended the contract after I sent the second report. After one day, he came back and message me to stop the billing and quoted him "without involving Upwork". I told him I needed to inform Upwork at that moment as I did my part on our agreement so we won't go through with the dispute.
3. He filed a dispute and it was handled by Upwork. Upwork reviewed it and they gave him $14 refund. I respect Upwork decision. However, the client didnt and he sent me threat message that he will "put an end on me" here.
4. True to his words, after 8 days that first dispute is closed, he opened a new dispute. His reason this time is that he felt "insulted" of Upwork's decision by just giving him $14 refund. He also confirmed that he contacted my other clients. I was wondering why my 1 project just got ended though that project was completed Oct.25 but the lady client who I thought was nice throughout our project just ended the contract on the same day this difficult client filed the dispute. To surprise me more, the lady client left me a negative feedback which is very different from what our last discussion on our project. She said and quoted "Your are the best! Thank you."
5. I felt being harass here by this difficult client. He sent those threat messages and contacted my client/s to turn away from me. I did my part to avoid this situation and keep his business but he is really tricky. I would like to ask help from you here if there is something I can do to stop his harassment.
6. I can not withdraw money which I needed for my wife's liver and kidney treatment. This is the reason why I work online now. I still continue working with my other projects but I really need to replenish or buy new set of medicine for my wife this week and I cannot withdraw my earnings.
Please help me here to resolve this issue with this difficult client.
This is my first post an hour ago. I really need help now. I am shaking and depress here. He is calling me now a Thief and Stealing money to buy my wife's medicine. I dont know if the mediator is still online because Nick won't step in or say something for this client to stop calling me names. He admitted now that he checked again my other client in Australia.
It looks like the team sent you a notification a while ago about your account suspension. I'll follow up with them and ask them to update you as soon as possible.
Valeria, my account also has this "Red Box" stigma. Can't find an email about it, though. I haven't used my account in a long time and I am a client, not a freelancer. As far as I know, I paid the hiree. Please look into this and let me know what to do next.
I do want to express frustration about the job my freelancer did. She was awesome and did exactly what I needed, but all her work disappeared when my WordPress updated =(. and all my money was wasted.
It looks like the client account is suspended because there are some issues with the payment method added to the account. Could you or the company owner check the payment method you have on file and make sure there are no issues with it?
I have recieved the following message and it is now almost a week and nothing has been solved. I ended the contract with the client but still I recieve the message that they are waiting for the client to comply. What does that have to do with my account. Please help me somebody.
