Dear employers, contest holders and colleague freelancers, I want to warn you about Freelancer and their unprofessionalism and lack of respect to all of us.
Please don't report this post as a spam, it's essential for everyone to see what's happening.
As I informed you few days ago, I've won the contest on Freelancer at Saturday, 17.11.12. Contest was guaranteed. Employer transferred money to my account at the same day. Funds were on my account for one day. Day after, at Sunday, suddenly there was no any money on my account.
After 4 or 5 days of tickets, emails and complains Freelancer don't want to admit their mistake and system failure, and they don't want to refund.
Obviously, nothing is guaranteed on this website.
Just type "freelancer scam" on Google and you'll find plenty of similar stories.
After two years my work on this website is done. There's a huge number of alternatives...99designs, Guru, oDesk, Elance...see you there!
