Nothing you need to do, but in future don't use direct contracts until you know if a client is or is not on Upwork.

Unlikely. Unless you contacted the client on Instagram knowing they had an Upwork account.
Do you really bother companies on Instagram to try and sell thm a logo even if you have no idea if they need one or not?
Or did you see the client's Upwork job post and then contacted them on Instagram, which could absolutely get you suspended, and rightly so.
actually i got 2 clients from instagram they wanted a logo design and the contract were completed succesfully .but when i messaged the third one i didn't know he was on upwork and this problem arised.
anyways, thanks for your help,takecare
