Could the client have just initiated the weekly salary on February 4?
OP, a "salary" payment is one that is made automatically each week regardless of whether you record billable hours or not. So, it would normally appear even if you had not done any work.
The mystery here is why it appeared on February 4. Was that the first week of your contract with the client?
If so, the salary was charged to the client pursuant to the contract he created and may have not been charged subsequently because the contract was paused.
Tonya, I have had no contact with client since his last message Jan 4. He has not replied to any of MY messages since. I don't know what he might have done, but I do kbnow Upwork suspended the contract a while ago, which is still the status, so I canot understand why I got more money. I wrote client asking him on more than one occassion to end the contract. No response.
PLEASE help. Now Upwork informs me that the suspended contract has been reinstituted and I can start collecting hourly pay. I DON'T WANT THE MONEY. I'M NOT WORKING FOR THIS PERSON. I cannot cancel the contract because I cannot locate the way to do so.
