Ive contacted the website. first they took it seriously and i was contacted by someone in my country by the freelancers friend. he claimed these things and i felt sorry that if i was in doubt at all it would stop his income for his kids school fees.
this man got me to install team viewer and skype. i had never done this before but i have been hacked before in 10 years. but nothing like what has happen to me since i told this man a few things about my work
Iam creating government files and he found out i was working with someone else and tried to obtain all the files. my computers, my social network, everything has been interfered with
I asked Upwork to lift the ban on my account because i could not work anymore with this.. this man also man me feel bad.. but i don't feel bad that he got huge amounts of money from me, hacked my computers, stole files,
he claimed my files don't hold value to him but i have been creating unique vectors for the military in my coutnry and some around the world these vectors are valuable
he asked me to share my screen, press ctnl Y and then zoom in so he could snap shot my screen of this Victoria Cross.. I have over 40 jobs done like this by other man. not this man. he did everything to get me to send him my files. i fear he will now well them, aswell as continue to hack my life.. all from this site
Iam telling this site and i can't seem to get anything back.
It was foolish of me in many areas but i am not always thinking.
please help with advice. I have been hacked. my PC's are in trouble. This man runs a scam on here. I belive to set up zombies and more.

what am i ment to do with files i can't use. if a man was innocent. he would have asked his client what was wrong. he would support that person because he was the person who asked to open his computer network. I have no experience in this stuff. even mobile phones. as i don't need to use 1. my work maybe small, but my files are very valuable. I saw this man go from calling me SIR and friend. turn on me because he found out i was working with another and i would not send my files to him.
do i really have to spend a week writting out things he said by voice for you to think maybe this bloke is for real.
Yep; there's a lot of that going around here ... free money.
At some point, browsers may start flagging UpWork as a site with "security issues" ... "enter at own risk" ...
