I never demanding about Amount and I just demand to stop such a client to use Upwork. Anyone from the Upwork community guides me on how to deal with such clients.

The client asks me to clear some typing course and I did it successfully but he said at End your typing speed doesn't 60 to 70 wpm and I provide him 40 to 50 wpm. So he asks me to refund the amount and I'm going to refund half amount of the total budget but I wrongly click on the Full amount and after that, this client used some bad words like Idiot, etc...

I can reply to him very well but I never used such bad words... After that, he agreed to give me half amount but now he never replies to me.

I never need this little income but I request the Upwork support team to please take action and not allow this Client to work for Upwork. A client like this create a bad impact on a platform..,

Did you think a client willing to cheat on typing tests wouldn't be willing to cheat on freelancers who also cheat on typing tests?


You refunded the full amount, the end.

In future, don't engage in cheating, the person taking tests for a cheater is just as bad as the cheater themselves.

I will surely take care onward but I want that upwork never allow such client to use this platform. Upwork is good place and I'm attached there from last 3 years. First time a client takes the work and run without paying.
