Few days ago I was hired by a  job. I successfully completed the job and client paid me with bonus,but he forgot to end the contarct .His payment method was verified. He already spend money to hire freelancer.

 

After 2 days later i saw, may be when I woke up in the morning, my financial transaction has been hold surprisingly.My client account suspended by ODESK.  I contacted customer support and provided all specimen what they asked. i gave them every single details.

 

After somedays later my money gone.

 

I contacted ODESK ,they said they nothing can do. My question is if My client  account suspended and why all punishment for me. I tried to contact my client but he is still offline. What is my fault, still I dont know?

 

Whats the reason that ODESK reversed all  money that client paid me. If that client was fraud ,cheated on odesk how can i be so sure about that. I am really confused about and also frustrated about that matter.

 

I wish further it will never happen any of freelancer. Its too much painful.Smiley Frustrated

Hi Khadezatul,

Was it a hourly paid contract or fixed price?

Setu,

Either way, she is protected IF she had a fixed price or hourly contract (escrow or oDesk guarantee). IF, unfortunately, is the key word...

Cheers,

William

What seems strange is that she says the payment was reversed.

Hourly contract is guaranteed as long as the client's payment is verified. But i am not too sure about fixed price without a funded milestone (if that can even exist these days).

On hourly if she did not keep good memos, the job could have been disputed, as well as if she was on a guarantee job, but on guarantee she would have been paid. So I assume it was either a dispute or fixed rate dispute. But either way she should have been given a reason.

 

Or the client had an expired credit card.

Khadezatul, since it was a fixed price project, was the milestone funded?
