No payment after finishing my project!

Hi, I am a freelancer and helping clients for translation! I got replied a few jobs from here and found problem as below:

- The jobs are requesting to translate text images to their designed language within a few days, e.g. 2-3 days. 

- The payment is USD1500, 2000 or less.

- The job ad is removed in upwork after I agreed to do so

- I do not get "contract is active" in the record from upwork! I only got text confirmation from telegram!

- Task completed and confirmed but the employer informed me that I need to pay USD105 to get access their portal system for this payment!

- The employer requested me to sign a gurantee form in order to get the payment. 

Here is the whole story: I applied jobs for translation projects in here, the managers (three different employers) requested me to chat in Telegram for futher information. After I chat with them and agreed to do their project, they would remove the ad in upwork and no record would be found! One of my finished task was to translate image text to their designed language within 48 hours! The payment would be USD2000 after finishing. But, after confirmation the task is completed, the manager would not pay me and request to sign a form and ask me to pay USD105 for accessing their portal system!! 

 

After I search on the interent, I found a passage about this company "beware for a scam" https://www.reddit.com/r/buhaydigital/comments/14wtb0d/beware_these_scammers_digital_web_prints_ecnl... 

 

Therefore, I really need someone help and let me know, should I trust this company? If it is being trustable, could upwork help for assistance? 

 

Thank you!

Upwork wont help here. You broke rules and contacted scammer outside without contract. It was your fault.

Block scammer, report his and spend your time for rules reading before you banned for ToS violation.

I didn't know they are scammer! I joined upwork a few days ago and just want to find freelance jobs. But thank you for your response!

You welcome. In short: never contact outside (TG, eml, etc) without contract. It will save you.
