CC dispute?
Can work however it is probably against the T&C of upwork which will trigger a shutdown although I think they will be on the loosing end in that case

Lesson learnt and PSA: I proceeded with this on upwork, freelancer did not deliver wanted to open a dispute upwork says you released the milestone there's nothing we can do it is your obligation to review the work if it is satisfactory before releasing the money, when I explained that there was no work since it is a upfront payment they could only confirm that I've been trapped

It is now with a simple Google Search  "upwork upfront payment scam" that I found this

https://community.upwork.com/t5/Clients/Freelancer-wants-to-charge-a-high-upfront-fee/td-p/277796

Can't decide if this was his intention initially, however would I know the risk i would never trust him, I put my trust in Upwork

Can work however it is probably against the T&C of upwork which will trigger a shutdown although I think they will be on the loosing end in that case
I have delt with Upworks predecessor Odesk. Had issues with the work that he created and he of course claimed that that he reached the next milestone.

We got him ask for more $$ via email and then went ahead with a cc dispute and won of course. Locked him out of all website passwords, blocked his email and never heard from him again.

I don't remember. I think that he just closed the case.
