Hi, on Friday, 21 January, I received 2 orders from the same client to submit and market their music. My services entails a detailed report and updates. As I've completed and submitted to one milestone (Bearing in mind I am 90% done with the 2nd one) I get an email saying these projects have been suspended, but no need to make contact as they will resolve it. I then messaged Aaron (the client) to ask if he knows why the suspension happened and to no surpise, no response.
From what I've read... When a suspension happens, the issue lies with the clients payment method? Hence the contract was first suspended and then cancelled by Upwork
Now it just says canceled and refunded. No $$ refelecting in my overview. I'm a seasoned freelancer on Upwork and never ever had this experience. This is also my first order on a project catalog. I also can't seem to send any dispute or make contact with Upwork.
I received no email or communication. $1185 that I've worked so hard for, dedicating 4 days of grinding hard to have things happen like this. I feel like I've been scammed! 😞
