    I have lost contact with a freelancer from this website that I made a deal with, and have made part payment.
    Today is 48 hours after when they said they would be back online, and no contact from them. I have sent PM and tried contacting via Skype too.

    Feel a little in limbo right now... they do have a yellow user ID and have been using this site for 4 years.

    Hope its not gonna be one for the shit list lol

    Give him some time, when was he last online?

    Hopefully everything works out for you.

    last seen on this site about 4 days ago, I really trust this guy and just seems really out of character for them.
    I think another 48 hours would be fair on his part, failing that I think I'll have to perhaps ask around to see if anybody has dealt with this guy or not previously. Perhaps a Mod could give me peace of mind maybe...

    Thankyou for your replies folks :boobies:

    Just put him in the shit list mate, and post all your screen logs, and comms, (remove personal data) a mod will help you there, and the person will have a chance to respond fairly.

    Give him more time - sometimes we get away from our pc-s for several days for various reasons.

    Good luck :)
