Method: Hires a freelancer, frelancer finishes the work successfully, and gets payment and a good review. After that client goes to bank and reverses the payment. According to the Upwork policy if the client reverses the payment, they'll get the money from the freelancer. Dot. So the freelancer is not protected from scammers at all!!!

Lost: $1500

Comments: If you don't want to have same experience, at least apply only hourly jobs and don't work without time tracker.

Hi Nerses,

I`m sorry to hear about the bad experience you had.
If you would like to report them further please send me a PM with the details and job posting links or contract ID, our team will investigate the client further.

No need to "investigate" anything. A client who files a chargeback is automatically suspended as filing a chargeback is a violation of the terms of service.

Please read the Community Guidelines - this kind of post with direct names and contact information is not allowed, as Goran should have specified in his reply.
