Report a manipulative and rude client

 I am a newbie here in Upwork and was glad to have my second client after several attempts of trying find a job.
I have been manupilated by a client that is not responding already after I finished the job. When I showed him my work. He requested additional tasks which are not mentioned. I was open to discussion but he was very rude and mean. I was willing to continue working and be a nice person but he obliged me to end me the contract by his rude behaviour. I was so motivated to make him satisfied. I passed the whole day working to solve his issue. 
I really feel frustrated and demotivated.  


Where can I report this client ? 


Thank you.

Hey Oussema, please learn a lesson from this client even if the lesson is to spot a potential problem before it happens. Working with many different people has many challenges and as a Freelancer we have no option other than to adapt. Thanks!


Reporting a client for being "rude" strikes me as irrelevant.


Reporting is only about helping other people. It has nothing to do with helping yourself.


More important than "reporting" a client for rudeness is deciding what YOU will do.

How will YOU handle thr situation? On your own, without needing to contact somebody else, such as Upwork Customer Support.
