Upwork finally resolved my issue and apologized but not after I told 4 different reps to read the entire posted message in context instead of just scanning for the word, “Paypal” and assuming the worst!!
Anyway, I’m looking for alternatives, I won’t stay with Upwork. They are too expensive and their site is not as intuitive as Elance and is missing some features I need so I’ll be gone soon, assuming I find a site that has what I need. I tried guru.com but they delete your past projects after something like 60 days which is crazy! I need a site that will maintain my history so I’m still evaluating others.
