Recently I got my proposal recieved. The client asked to sign NDA. I signed. The client sent me the instructions on how to work with their portal. I had some questions regarding the portal where I must complete my project. I also told them to assign me the job at Upwork. Suddenly, the client refused to cooperate further. Then again, the client continued to contact me as if they are giving me the second chance. And at the same time the client asked to start working on that portal.
I said to the client that without offering the job at Upwork, I cannot start the project.
Do you think it is a kind of violation of rule from the client's side respecteive to Upwork rules?
Because, I was not to sign NDA and register at their portal before I was offered the job at Upwork.
Please , can you give your feedback.
