I have been awarded twice but the projects are not started.

asked by Azlan Shah 31 January, 2016

I have been awarded the project twice by the clients and thus freelancer.com has charge me 2 times now before even the projects started. Right now my clients did not respond to my messages whatsoever thus the projects have been stalled while my money has been charged by freelancer.com.

Never accept any project without talking with the Employer on messages.
Some fake projects are posted here some times so you have to be aware of that too.
And for security reason you can ask the employer to create milestone before you accept the project .
Once you accept the project freelancer will charge the project fees.

Hello there,
You may report dispute the project since employer does not want to pay. Freelancer team will provide ample time to both Employer and Developer to present their arguments and then they will handle the dispute.

Before filling any dispute please make sure every single information related to project must have been discussed via Freelancer chat.

you have to accept award. But be careful about milestone. Don't accept award without milestone. Best of luck :)

a project should only be accepted once you discuss the terms and conditions of the particular project with your client. make sure to not accept the project unless you talk to your client via freelancer chat as the fee is charged by the freelancer on acceptance of a project.
