    Hi Rebecca

    Sorry to hear that you had this issue with a user and thank you for reporting them. As Nancy has mentioned, communication should never be taken off the platform, this is to protect both our buyer and freelancer communities.

    Best wishes,

    Report it via the workstream you used.

    All freelancers are told to read the terms and conditions before starting work - ie, not to work outside of the PPH platform. If they do, they would also be in breach of PPH Ts and Cs.  Far too many scammers on here.  Best to report from the project workstream.

    They have been reported.

    Believe me, going off PPH is not something I do, I was drawn into this one, but I was savvy enough to realise what I guess I initially expected. 

    I don't want others to fall for these scams - easily done!

    You can't tell people or educate them, I'm afraid.  There's been hundreds of threads warning people, telling them to read properly, telling them not to go off platform. Do they listen? No. 

    The calibre of freelancers on this site has decreased so much - in line with the rise of scammers - such that most now think this is a pot of gold and just forge merrily ahead.  Just best to report, as you have done.  Educating people is just like banging your head against a brick wall.  They just see the $$$
