    Freelancer.com has the worse staff and “customer support”, if it can be called a “customer support”, the staff is VERY rude, totally unprofessional, you can open a ticket and wait until you die for an answer or you can receive a copy-paste stupid answer. They have the WORSE customer support I EVER seen!!! Also they have A LOT of cases where they “block” users accounts which have quite a lot of money and steal all the money. Don’t use freelancer.com!!!

    Sorry to say it, but Freelancer.com is a scam. Period. Who would you rather believe? Some bozo pasting this same generic statement everywhere or a freelancer who went through all of their humiliating procedures?

    Here is a manual for all the folks who feel badly served by their bozo staff. Get your revenge – expose Freelancer.com’s misbehavior!

    Read my blog, you will get the idea. Since this time, the company of Freelancer.com:
    - threatened me illegaly
    - insulted me in a number of ways
    - revealed my personal data to the general public

    Would like me to paste the correspondence with you? I think that the people would be shocked how you can treat the users. So instead of pasting this fluff (google would tell me I can find such statements of you everywhere), find some decent job!

    Please don’t use FREELANCER.COM.

    1. I have heard about freelancer.com a lot and started using it. Things were going fine when I used to have $100 or less in my account. The day I crossed $500 in my account, I got to see a SCAMMER face of them.

    2. They wanted me verify myself, wow! that was not a issue. I verified myself and gave them all the necessary details. Now what they say? Yeah, they say my identity does not match. Amazing that was, I gave all the details correctly as per asked. They asked me questions which I replied as well. and then they keep on asking me questions after questions. Should I have used any other site? Surely, this is the worst place I could ever imagine. I know their security matures should be taken in such sites, but y they are asking me questions after questions every time which I already answered in brief?

    3, I consulted some of my mates and told them the story. What’s funny is that they say exactly the same thing happened to me. They say freelancer.com keep watching you until you have good amount in your account. The day they see your account is doing them business, they do this to you.

    4. I hired people to work for me over there. Now not just freelancer has eaten my money, but also not allowing me to pay my workers. Oh Christ, what do my employees have to do with this. The next funny thing is, all those employees I paid are re not able to withdraw the funds I paid. WTF!

    5. If you’re really looking for such kinda business, I would suggest DO NOT USE FREELANCER.COM. It will burn you and kill you badly. I hope you will not like to be cheated. I know many people will reply to my comment as what am saying is all fake. Yeah, because these are freelancer.com people and surely want you to attract you to use their site.

    If anyone has extra money to waste, I would suggest use freelancer.com and here you can waste as much you can. Though am not the one in need to waste my earning and so quit working there.

    Freelancer.com – the biggest scam!

    Very serious and responsible I work 120%. On freelancer.com since 2008, but employers were allways happy and my ratings is still 5.0.

    Since the site passed into the Australian hands, the freelancer.com strongly degraded. A lot of things changed: the number of projects increased, new functions were added, greed of the freelancer.com grew many times, scam scale increased.

    The administration isn’t capable to control monetary operations. They have no tools for this purpose. It is ok for the site, if after a good review and released payment, freelancer.com reversalt he transaction depriving you earned money. You do not even notified about it. They quietly remove the money from your account. I will say more. Freelancer.com can reversal the transaction after the money is withdrawed and keep your balance in a deep minus , and then they demand from you to put the money back on your frelancer account. As a result the freelancer.com will remove from you 110% (10% fees, which were removed at the beginning of a project + 100% of your earned money that were returned to the employer). Sounds absurd? Today it is quite so on the site. To all claims they answer in the manner „We can do nothing. A chargeback has been filed on the employer‘s payment provider. We only take fees. We would recommend that you contact the employer directly and ask to pay again.“

    All of these milestones – complete nonsense! An employer can post a project, create a milestone, get the project done, release the money and after get all money back. Freelancer.com promotes scam. What milestones for? To give the appearance of reliability? After a project is done, you won‘t see the money anyway. In addition, you pay 10% fees. Cool!

    Today the freelancer.com is not the guarantor of honest execution of deal. It is just a message board with the job offers, where you take all risks upon yourself. Freelancer.com only can guarantee that you will pay them all fees for the opportunity to be deceived!

    It is a pity to lose rating and reviews, but it is even more a pity for the nerves. There are alternatives and it is time to leave freelancer.com. You are sure it is no concern of you? Just type in google „freelancer.com scam reversal“.
