My client got limited transaction status when i was supposed to clear milestone

I posted, earlier today, a question about client being unable to grant me first milestone and hire me

but after that he repeatedly asked me to take paypal money or get payed from other UpWork account.

He even said to me: "if you do not want to do this, send me source code and I will find another developer". Of course I did not send him the source code.

 

With this disgusting revalation I am finally 100% sure this is a scam and this client should be banned or warned.

Maybe his account was hacked, quite possible, but that is not my problem.

 

I would like to talk to customer support(actual people, not a bot) to provide needed evidence and finally solve this problem since i cannot manually file a ticket, it always sends me on this community forum.

 

Thank you for your time and work.

In the top right hand corner of each job posting, there is a "Flag as inappropriate" button/link.

You may use that to report issues such as this. There are SPECIFIC options for reporting a client asking for free work AND for reporting a client who asks you to get paid off of the platform.

I did that already on clients main account but it transfered me here to make a new ticket instead of sending it directly.

Now I created another one for flagging his probable second account but it passed for some reason when i set it as a fraud.

 

Hopefully we can resolve this.

Thank you for your time.

re: "I would like to talk to customer support(actual people, not a bot) to provide needed evidence and finally solve this problem since i cannot manually file a ticket, it always sends me on this community forum."

 

It does not seem to me that this is necessary. The "Flag as inappropriate" has applicable options AND a free-form text field in which you can describe what happened.

 

Also, you have described your situation here in the Forum, which is read and monitored by Upwork employees including Moderators.

 

Is there something else that we're missing?

It appears you have already gone above and beyond in trying to help the Upwork community, and they now have the report and information. I don't believe you are under any obligation to do more if you are simply trying to warn others and help the Community.

 

Was there anything else pending with regards to your specific account?

Everything is okay, I just wanted to warn everyone since there are people who are being interviewed by same client on other account and I want to stop this from happening.

 

I did not get my pay for work that I finished and there is no help there sadly, but I do not want to let him ruin other hard working freelancers time and effort because he is astonihingly bad human being that does not have a bit of respect for people who provide quality work for him.

 

That is it, sorry if I am being pushy or rude.

I am just trying to help and stop this.

 

Thank you again.
