obviously the job was hourly,

as I explained in the original post if it was fixed price I would not of had the problem.

 

I never time track and never will.

 

"When you say that the client eventually paid up, how exactly did the client pay you?"

after called him at work and threatened him,

he then came back to his upwork account and paid it as a bonus payment.

 Then don't claim that there is no protection for hourly work when you yourself choose not to avail yourself of the protection that is available.

Ok I will rephrase that comment

 

"there is no protection for hourly jobs,

unless you use the upwork timetracker **Edited for Community Guidelines** app"

 

is that better

 Other than misinformation, am I the only one that is a bit concerned about this?  You called him at work and threatened him?  No.  Just no.  I cannot possibly be the only one that finds that entirely disturbing.

Hi Shyam,

 

I've checked and you were not hired by this client on Upwork. Please note that offering and accepting to be paid outside Upwork is a serious ToS violation. Please take screenshots of your conversations and report the client to Customer Support.

 

Please review these resources and specifically these safety tips before you continue submitting proposals.
