No wonder he can't be traced, probably went bankrupt if this is his level of travelling smarts!

Yes this story smells km away. I know it is bad when you lose money, two accounts, and feedback as well Smiley Happy

It's pretty bad that people need to turn to this type of fraud in order to get feedback. At least Upwork is trying to all the massive fraud that is constantly done here. Certain countries are more prone to this and it's getting to the point that if you are from one of these countries and are honest it won't matter.  Your countryment are ruining it for the honest people.

I'm ashamed and it's sad that a bunch of frauds are ruining the reputation of my whole country. I mean, why would people who are aware of the world of freelancing even use Internet cafes for business dealings?? Don't you and your mysterious 'client' have laptops? Smartphones maybe?

 

We're not primitives for heaven's sake. Also, some of us are trying to make an honest living here, so please, don't spoil that for us with your crookedness.

Al, I believe you (not so smartly) tried to cheat oDesk. You've already done your research:

 

I confirmed from your support team before starting my work on UPWORK that if client not pay or not respond after delivering my work than what will happens ? they assure me that my funds are secured and i will get paid !

 

I don't believe anything you've written except the correspondence from oDesk to be true.

Young man, I once needed the feedback.

I had just returned from China, and my prospects seemed black.

Even Asda said no ...

And there seemed just no place to go

 

 That's when someone suggested working online,

 I said I’m desperate, and anything just seems fine.

 There's a place there called the odesk.

 They can start you back on your way.
