I started out freelancing on Upwork. I bidded for over 30 tasks, a few of them would contact me back only to decline my proposal after I had sent a sample. After two months I receive an email saying the amount of proposals I had submitted without a job means that my skills were not of value in their marketplace, so my account was suspended. I tried to delete my account but they would not even allow me to do that. I contact support to delete my account but I am replied by a bot several times.
As a consumer using the site seeking to hire, I see many people complaining of not getting paid in a timely fashion. If its for the purposes of vetting a process of accountability to completed projects done right then its a must. Sorry, some "freelancers" are unaccountable for providing inferior work. We have come across profiles that are not real at times and at best borderline. Upwork needs to clean out these profiles, verify authenticity of work they reported to accomplish and create a rating system that is verified by work. We take notice of 5 star reviews from low total job costs ie those costing around 200 usd as spam and warning sign that internally someone is posting jobs and basically paying themselves with a small loss of fee, then basically rating themselves 5 stars. There needs to be a product verification of each rating posted. Warning signs, asking for positive reviews prior to a full and complete job. A 30 day wait period to post and revise within that time. As a consumer you need to do some due diligence outside of the platform, run searches on names and companies, call or email those who claim they have work done by the individual or company. For the most part Upwork and formally elance has been a great resource, and works well. However, due diligence is a big must.
Why do they pay people to post positive things, knowing there site is nothing but a junk email filler? Just don't sign up. Really disappointed. Will do my research next time before I sign up for anything. Don't get jerked around like I did. Why doesn't someone shut them down?

I invested there 199$USD today and I recived money with Premium Area.
why You say that is scam?
my payout details:
Right on. This company do not respond any actions I´ve been taking since reaching payout-amount. So this site is now suspended. Dont waste your time and efforts. I had a suspicion before involving - it was too good to be true. But I´m a writer and have to do some experience myself. This was one of the few bad ones. What to do now. Well, I´ve been listing all the advertisers from the site, and is about to ban them in all kinds of methods I know. If I did an advertisement on a website, promising people to earn by clicking and viewing, and not paying, well then it is bound to hurt me somehow. And I would never dream of using such kind of company to promote my products. So, please ban all the advertisers everywhere you go, write and more. And to all the people, who consider udgrading to get paid - its another waste. Use your money elsewhere. If you are not quite sure, please write me, and get some good suggestions: email@example.com
The list below - avoid getting involved with these companies, they use scam-site to promote their businesses, and that could very well suggest no good investment.
wow, they even have people hired to post that that they have been paid :/

So plz don't any pay oru sites friend
my experience is that is a little reputable company that does not comply with the terms of service. I've earned $ 35,000 and paid for a gold membership .. It's been at least 20 days and despite numerous complaints that I have presented to them, they only answered twice with the same text, a copy and paste and repeating what they say in terms of services that are precisely what they do not comply.
I'm trying to demand payment via AlertPay and hopefully get it back. That company also had the nerve to ask me the amount of $ 99 plus the $ 220 for upgrade. Something that does not appear on any site in its rules.
It has all the appearance of it is a scam in the making. They are informal and abuse people. do not know how some people say yes have claimed, if so, why they do not all. I do not get it.
I am waiting 2 years for any payouts from Upwork, My earnings standing at $269,920.
I communicated with them nearly every week but they do not even come back to you, stay away !!!!!
thx admin for it.
my payment details:

Same thing happened to me. Month after month, they are telling me over and over again that I have to wait for another month. They owe me to this day 96,500.00$ and never paid me anything. I even sent the support service with a copy of my back office to show them that I was way over the 20,000.00$ minimal payout, but they never got back at me. No answer, no explanations nothing!
I recived money from this site.
I paid for Premium with Perfect Money and get money from there 3500$.
I can tell that this site paid me.
I had reviewed a similar case like me:
I have reached the minimum payout of upworkptr.com few months ago which is $20,000. I've got a total of $24,000 on my total earnings page. I was so excited thinking I hit a jackpot considering this huge and easy money over the net. So I immediately went to the request payout link. To my dismay, it gave me a message that I have not yet reached the minimum payout limit of $20,000 for standard members. I contacted support (no live chat nor forums available) which only replies through email. I was then told to wait for 30 days so I waited for 30 days. I did the same step 30 days after and there it goes again, I still have not reached the minimum pay-out (I already have $64,000 total earnings). I started to think my suspicion might be true, this website may be a scam. To give them benefit of the doubt I emailed support for the 4 time, asking why I still can't request for payout when in fact I'm over the payout limit for standard members and had passed the wait time (according to them which is not on their terms of service.) I got the same reply, I HAVE TO WAIT FOR ANOTHER 30 DAYS TO REQUEST PAY-OUT and INSISTED THAT I UPGRADE MY ACCOUNT. So I responded that I'm through with the waiting time, and I made a payment to fund my account at Upworkptr to upgrade my account to the premium membership to get the payment . I have not heard anything again from them since..
Thus I made my rating to the $#@! degree and suspended it till I see any development from Upworkptr who I expect to reply via e-mail.
