Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“WARNING: DO NOT TRUST THIS CLIENT! YOU WON''T GET PAID!!!!!
This client has figured out all the loopholes in the Elance system to avoid payment as well as the dispute resolution process. He makes continuous promises to pay and then doesn''t pay. He somehow was able to evade the so called "guaranteed payment'' for an hourly time tracked job.
After two weeks of broken promises to pay on the completed job, I filed a dispute which was dismissed on the basis that the client wasn''t disputing the work or the charges, he just kept stating he would pay and then didn''t. Then, after another month of broken promises to pay on unpaid invoices, the client wanted me to do more work for him claiming that I "never completed the project", which was an hourly job that had been marked complete for a month and a half since the day I delivered the finished document to him. When I filed another dispute, that was dismissed as well on the basis that I waited to long to file a dispute.
Then, in spite of still owing me money, he attempted to coerce me into working for him for free by filing a dispute with Elance claiming that I "never completed the project". Once the client realized that I wasn''t going to continue to work for him for free, he decided to leave me feedback of zero stars, which didn''t surprise me, since his client history shows that he leaves negative feedback for any client who has the nerve to expect payment or who won''t go along with his manipulations.
At this point, I''ve written off the $175 that this client still owes me, since I know he is never going to pay me anyway. Small price to pay for no longer having to deal with a con artist! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!”
