What should I do if someone invites me to work but is then insulting, racist and rude? 

 

They asked for free consultation and then blocked me!

It all depends on knowing exactly what was said. I'm sure that insulting, racist and rude remarks didn't come out of the blue.  Of course a client should not have to resort to that, They are not professional, but Something had to bring that on IMO.

Hi Nick,

 

I am sorry to hear you had this experience. If a client approaches you to ask for free work, or is abusive toward you, we have a department called Marketplace Quality that investigates these matters. 

 

I will take care of this for you, but if you encounter anything else like this, you can submit a customer service request here.

 You should report the client and provide evidence for your accusation with screenshots. Nothing else, the client has blocked you already. I hope this helps. I do not think you want to work for him anymore.
