I posted a job for a graphic designer and as soon as I accepted a bid from a so-called designer I realized it was a mistake. When I asked for a portfolio of her work, her company website was down. I contacted Freelancer.com numerous times but only received a response once I opened a dispute with my credit card company. This is an awful company and I urge people to stay away and find more competent and reliable people to work with. In addition, it seems that most of their designers are from third world companies who are happy to receive any kind of funds. BEWARE

the man in the middle here - freelancer.com - is making it absolutely hell for both employer and freelancer, support is horrible, they are arrogant in what they think they can demand from people. Someone will distrupt this site i am chocked how arrogant this company behaves and all they have to do is to take money from people. they dont do nothing. I feel bad for the freelancers.

Communication is awful and payments are ridiculously slow. Do not expect an invoice sent to them for work complete to be paid within 6 months unless you threaten court action. Seriously unacceptable conduct from this company.

I completed the job and sent an invoice using their recommended protocol over 3 months ago. They do not respond to emails requesting an update. When I call they tell me it is still being processed. The client I was working with also found they were extremely slow to respond. If a client wishes to use them, seriously try to persuade them to use another service.

I am a UK-based freelance programmer and have been getting jobs on Freelancer.com for the last six months.
Recently Freelancer.com stole $200 and £110 from my account within a span of a few days. They call it "Reversal of done milestone payment" but everybody else calls it THEFT.
They didn't even refund me the project fees until I complained to customer support. I have already filed complaints with Action Fraud UK and the UK Trading Standards office. I suggest to whoever has fallen victim to Freelancer.com and is resident in the UK to do the same.
I am in the process of withdrawing all my funds and moving to Upwork.
Conclusion: Freelancer.com is a SCAM and should be AVOIDED at all costs.

This is a really bad site...Whatever your question there is no one giving you answer.. I got two projects and I completed with a good review then get paid $250. But I got only $83 from the total paid amount. ... I pay subscription fee and take a few tests and when I ask about the balance discrepancy nobody there to reply or give me statement. Then I found out that someone is playing with my profile and changing my profile when I apply for a job and I ask them to check into it and find me solution... I even attached a snapshot of the matter and again no one reply to me... if someone get a reward for not answering they should be a number one on not answering list... no matter what your problem is or how many times you asked them.. there is absolutely no answer. The only time they contact you is to remind you about subscription or sending expired ads which doesn't fit your skill. You can simply understand that their only concern is to ask for money. And 90% of the project is fake or advertised by middle men, so by mistake if you apply for these people they ask you to send your e-mail address so that they can send you job description... but they will ask you for another payment for them to get the project .... I also report this but still they didn't take any action.....actual its worse than before to be frank..... and its difficult to get genuine offer... all in all its really shameful the way they handle their site... they don't have any control over the site ...I am just amused how they follow up the reviews and take time to answer all the complaints here... why don't they answer the question they get on their own site there..???? You should be ashamed of your lame excuses here, its like you are trying to cover your fault here. Try to fix your problem on your own site...Whoever is wondering about this site should stay away from there...

I'm still working around my way into a job with any of the ad posts on the site. So far in the last month there have been at least a dozen jobs with most of them asking for a content writer and sadly I could only apply for two posts because the rest of them demanded for a specific level of technical expertise for their tasks. So in other words, the demand for labor is close to 2% but the most impressive thing about it is that it has generous payouts say $10-$100 per hour depending on how tasking a project is...!
Sorry I got a regret notice saying, "We regret to inform you that your application has been declined with reason "Just preferred other applicants." Sounds prejudiced!!!
