I have my account created years ago but really new to freelancing. And I would plead you take it easy on me.
So, a buyer had contacted me to help work on a project that seemed to have been giving him problem and had gotten rejected by couple of sellers. I agreed to work on the project and he asked if I would like to create offer that instant, but because I, in the first place couldn’t be sure I would 100% get the job done ( told him to hold on, and to let’s focus on accomplishing the task before creating any offer as I have read canceling of order is bad for a buyer. We however agreed on a budget and started with the project, ensuring I updated him on all development on the job.
To cut the story short, I was able to get the job done and trusted the guy that I sent him the results in the chat for him to review.
He has then, since I submitted the files to him stopped responding to my messages.
Moreover, I checked on him some minutes ago and saw his online status to be AWAY. I am not really sure what that means but, I think I have learnt my lessons: The hard way.
Castigate me, but please be lenient. I would also like to know if you have experienced such and the way you handled it.
