Hi Rommel,

 

Please keep in mind that contracts can be closed due to inactivity after 90 days. I would suggest communicating with your client further and agreeing on the start date or any other details that you need for the project/tasks. Thank you.

do you mean a contract with a milestone without any activity will be closed after 90 days automatically, Goran

Goran recently i noticed aside for a dormant milestone of this client, i checked his list of "job in progress" i did not see this ongoing contract of mine in his list. knowing that this client put $300 as a first milestone how did he do it, and its very alarming.

Hi Rommel,

 

Could you please send me a private message with more information on your concern along with the client's list of jobs in progress so that I can take a look?

Thank you.

Just go to the contract your side and check. If it is under "active milestomes" on your "My Jobs" page and "funded" then it's real. Why would you think your account is compromised? What you can see on the client's history is largely irrelevant.

 

You want to make sure you're paid something before the contract is over 2 months old with nothing (ever) paid, as otherwise it will affect your JSS.
