This is my first time using the site and I didnt realize anything was unsual. I am not the fraudent one here, I simply trying to warn other people this is happening.
Accepting money outside of the platform defrauds Upwork from their fees. I'm sure you did not mean to, but you have committed an egregious violation of the Terms of Service which can get your account suspended. Thank you for warning us about this client, but you should have ended contact with them as soon as they suggested sending you a check directly rather than through the platform.
The good thing about Bangladesh is we never receive anything via post mail office. Not that they filter out the scams, actually they don't deliver anything in time. There is no way to deposit if we can't receive the check. So I guess this is a good thing, right?
