Is this a Scam from a Client

I received a low feedback score from a client that I genuinely do not believe, and think I am being scammed
Here's what happened.
I took a job from a client to do some banner ads. Nothing major, I knocked them out pretty quick, sent them off to the client. She had some small tweaks, no drastic overhauls to my design, and she seemed pretty happy.
Then I got my feedback score from her and she gave me a 1 star for quality and 1 star for skills. Which indicates she did not like what she received, but then why didn't she have me overhaul the entire ad and why did she pay for the work? It doesn't make sense.
EVERYONE else has given me 5 stars (except one person gave me a 4.85—4 stars for availability which I do not dispute).
I have been doing research trying to figure out how I can get this removed or disputed and it turns that if I refund her the $150 it will be removed, while she still keeps the work.
Has anyone every heard of this happening. It really upsets me, since I am fairly new to oDesk and it really hurts my job prospects.
