Hello, I want to know how to report client here? She asked me to purchase PVA's for her ads posting and the agreement she will hire me for more than 6 months unfortunately she ended the contract after a week gave me poor review which is not fair enough for me. Upwork only charged her $14 and I purchased her tools for $17.50. Attached is the client record. So be ware guys!

Marelyn:

It is okay to report a client.

But keep in mind that "reporting a client" is mostly irrelevent to your success and financial earnings.

 

You arleady know that the right thing to do would to have not paid for this client's expenses in the first place. Or to have collected her payment beforehand.

 

Also, when a client tells you that they will "hire you for 6 more months"...

...This means nothing.

 

A client will hire me now and pay me now. That is all.

You now are wise. And you will never again pay for a client's expenses because a client promised to hire you for a long period of time or buy you a sandwich or whatnot.

Hey Preston, 

A client wanted to work outside of Upwork. Through Paypal. 
I've said no and taken a screenshot. How can I report him?

Upload the screenshot (if it's not in Upwork messages) and then flag the job post as inappropriate, explaining what happened and including the link to the screenshot.

 

If it's in Upwork messages, you can report it directly via the message by clicking on the cog on the right and picking "Report message"
