I have worked with a canadian company but my salary is the longest due to retribution reasons, is it like that? by the way, I'm from Indonesia


Hi Fathur,


Could you please elaborate on this? I checked your account and found no active contract. Kindly provide us with more details and we'll be here to assist you.

I communicated with them via telegram but when they wanted to give me a salary they said I had to pay the administration because of the international levy


Hi Fathur,


Thank you for reaching out to us. Please know that sharing contact information before a contract has started is against Upwork's Terms of Service and that all communications prior to the contract starting must take place on Upwork. 

Never get paid or pay someone outside of Upwork. You may open yourself up to scams or fraud, and lose Upwork Payment Protection. A real client will never ask you to give them money to start working, cash a check for them, work for free, or provide your personal information.

I also encourage you to let us know if a TOS violation has happened by using the Flag as Inappropriate option throughout the platform. You can learn more about user reporting here.


Additionally, you may want to check this help article and this thread to help you stay safe on Upwork.
