Well aint that a kick in the [insert body part here] !! That one could definately go in any direction. Most likely it's some weird feature (a.k.a. yet another problem) only showing some reviews / feedback.
I'd take a short look at the fact that the client spent over $50,000 as a sign that it's a real deal client. However, I'd also take it as a potentially "serious" client that expects specific + excellent results..... or else.
IF you want to take the chance, as we all do, I'd give it a shot. But once you did, I'd be paying absolute attention to that job if I were you.
I understand that this is important for you to be able to see full client's work history to make a decision about applying for the job. There is a technical issue that has already been escalated to our engineers and they will fix it as soon as possible. I appreciate your patience.
You can also refer to this thread about the same issue.
The client has spent over $50,000 so the job is authentic. And the client is hiring you so might as well accept the offer. The only reason I would decline it is if 1) it would affect my current job which is not online 2) if I found a better offer. But if it doesn't affect both, go for it. You know the job and it's extra cash to spend.
Thank you everyone.
I turned the job down as I'm just not willing to risk my Job Success score and my overall rating.
It's ironic that we get told to choose clients carefully and then we have this situation.
If there was NO risk to my Job Success I would have taken the job but the way things are these days I'm not willing to take that risk.
