Hello Sir,
I'm Md Umar Khan. I'm facing a problem with a client please help me regarding that. The case is, I have been on a contract of a client named Nagasundaram A with Contract ID 21527145. He told me to deliver a plagiarised-free content on some specific topic. I have delivered the same within the deadline, but he is going to end my contract saying that my content is plagiarised even though my article is 100% original. I just have copied some images which I have taken permission prior to the contract. Now, he is ending my contract saying that he will not pay me and also threatening me to give me a negative review.

Many other freelancers had faced the same problem with him. Please help me!

Good luck getting this problem resolved, but how do you know "Many other freelancers have faced the same problem with him."?

I have gone through its Job posting and saw many people facing this same problem with him.  As he had given each and every person some negative review.

I have said before that Upwork should publicly provide for each client the average public and private ratings the client has provided for all of his/her previous freelancers.

 

It'll never happen, but a guy can dream.

 

And yes, I think the same information should be calculated for a freelancer's ratings on previous clients.

If he gave other freelancers negative reviews, why did you think you would get a good review?

The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. Why did you think you would be the exception?

##- Yes, that's my fault I think. I thought that I'll be his exception
because I'm a professional writer, being in this career from more than a
year and has written more than thousands of contents. And the reason which
he is providing is totally wrong as I have checked my content with a
premium plagiarism checker. -##

Well, that's the point. A client that consistently gives bad feedback is either very bad at picking freelancers, extremely unlucky, or scamming his way to cheap or free work.

There is no use aguing your case, he probably does this routinely to anyone that is still accepting offers from him.

Cheap freelancer that sells fraudulent Google Play reviews meets cheap client that wants "native" mother tongue and things of content and doesn't get it because well.... yeah.

 

It's glorious dramz and I love it.
