Well, first of all, you should NOT have paid this freelancer any money before he started working. He's been paid now, Although not the entire amount, but by you paying in advance, this freelancer earned $150. Now, he has some money, without doing any work and there's no incentive for him to do any work. This freelancer is most likely a scammer.

The only time you should pay a freelancer in advance, is if they need to buy supplies to do a job, such as buying stamps, or buying envelopes, - If they need to rent or acquire something, such as hiring actors and buying special props (if creating a video) or if they are ghostwriters where they will be working on a book that will last 3 or more months. (You can't expect them not to have any money coming in while writing that book.)

Then your next step would be to message the freelancer (if there are no funds in Safepay ) that you no longer need their services and are terminating the project agreement/contract. At that point you would either post another job to look for another freelancer, or pick another freelancer from the list of those that applied to the job.

Before letting the freelancer you no longer need their service, IF there are funds in Safepay, Click on the Request Refund button. If the freelancer doesn't respond then all funds in Safepay will be returned to you. If they respond, then both of you will enter into the dispute resolution process to determine who should receive the funds in Safepay
