My biggest shock on upwork.

If I completed the required work, answered all of my client questions then I received the attached messages. What should I do ?

I am really shocked so that I don't know what to do or to say. !

Thanks for sharing. It is chauvinist, disrespectful and rude. Try to report him. Put info about him on Reddit. Definitely write a horrible review. There are too many such clients here... And right now there is no system how to teach them to be normal. 

And no, they do now own you if they pay you; it is a mutual collaboration and mutual agreement. 

 

I am really sorry, Omar.

That's a horrible message with definite racist undertones, so you're entitled to be upset. I can't stand the racist and entitled attitudes of some of the people here on UW. 

 

Report him, but I'd having nothing further to do with him. There's no reason to insult you personally. Cut your losses, let him keep his money and move on. I know it's tough, but you'll get over it.

Definitely, don't cut your losses but fight for everything that you earned. That is why such people are there, as they know that in 80% freelancers will simply cut their losses.. Don't!

Will (after all those words) I wait for him to approve my money?

If the job is properly funded and you submitted your work properly there's no harm in waiting to see if he approves the payment. If he doesn't, UW will release the funds automatically after two weeks. If it wasn't fully funded or was manual time there's nothing you can do.

Can he refuse the request during these 15 days although I have made the work as required? What should I do if he does that?

---------------

If he does that, start a dispute and take it ALL the way to arbitration.

The arbitration cost is about 3 times the amount of money for this stage of the work.
