The first thing to do is remove that link to your portfolio. It could get your account suspended. They are not allowed here when there is a way to contact your privately through that site.

 

You might want to repay the money made for that one contract with the bad feedback. It has really lowered your job success score. Although you will lose some point by refunding the $5, what you gain by removing it will be worth it.

You should be able to refund it, as it isn't a year yet since the contract closed, unless that has changed recently.

 

You would have to go to the contract and do it from there.

 

Please note that a refund will make the feedback go away, and might minimally boost your star rating (but as feedback is Dollar weighed I doubt it will make any noticable difference as it was only $ 5.00) but will not improve your Job Success rate, which is dangerously low...
