This company pretends they are assisting 3rd world workers by finding them technical work online.
In trust they are running a huge extortion and extraction racket based on their own set of rules.
These rules are in their Terms and Conditions of use of their site, but sad;y for them these rules breach the Trade Practices Laws for fair trading in most countries, so have to be dealt with by that department or by your own local Fraud Squad Detectives.
This is serious stuff these bastards are doing and it has to be stopped and WE ALL need to spread this about everywhere. You need to also ask Paypal not to deal with them...if enough of us do this Paypal will cancel their accounts.
What this scummy comp[any is doing is using their T&C to gain access to your own Paypal account, through which they will rapidly extract odd sums without warning, notice, description or even any right. They in fact are simply stealing from you.
Go to you won Paypal account and look at recent transactions...find the word 'details' and click on it...YOU MUST cancel the free access to your funds that these bandits take and you MUST DEMAND that Paypal refund your illegally taken funds.
These buggers stole around $77.00 from my account for absolutely zero work done. They will always say the other party took it or even some other dumb reason...the end result is the same...they will take it all. Then when you demand a refund they shut your account down and keep everything. Just today I must have read about 150 theft cases...some are pretty serious sums too, so we must NOT give up. Use the social markets to plaster these bastards everywhere. Try to get photographs of the top 3 bastards...they are on one of their sites and I will see if I can find them again.
Please see your local Fraud Squad Detectives and give them this website to look through
www.ripoffreport.com/freelancers.com and the other one is http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.freelancer.com#conversation-tab where most are discussing thefts by these scum.
