*Author of original report: Getafreelancer (GAF) Suspended account with $3.000
My problem is the following:
Namely, www.getafreelancer.com is in the habit of suspending accounts when they have money in them. This has recently happened to me (I have $3.000.00 on the account at the moment i am writing this) and I am aware of others that have gone through the same problem. In addition to this they will ask for ID of proof of Country. When you provide them with the pertinent information where they can see the ID clearly but not to the point where it can be duplicated they want more. This doesnt make any sense if its just for proof of country.
This is obviously something that this Company has been getting away with for some time. They are holding money not only in peoples personal accounts of money they have earned, but also in escrow.
Its time that people take a legal action. You can start by laying a complaint with the internet crime complaint center. There are also other legal sites listed on the internet as well that you can lodge a complaint with.
Please stay away from this company and their site www.getafreelancer.com.
Always deal with people whose addresses are real, customer service real and you can get a live person on the phone.
Yeah, thats true that GAF has not phone number to be called. It sucks, isnt it?
They have a LIVE SUPPORT button on their site but all it does is take you to their email form so their support is not live particularly when they take days on end to answer, if they bother to answer at all.
