Freelancer.com Don't Use Freelancer.com - All Fraudsters on this site internet
Do not waste your money on this site full of con artists and scammers. Once they steal your money, Paypal will not protect you. Paypal will close your case, saying, "After careful consideration, we're unable to decide this claim in your favor at this time. The item violates the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy. It's ineligible for PayPal Buyer Protection." Unfortunately, this happened to me when I filed a claim with Paypal for the return of $105 I paid to a Freelancer.com conartist by the alias of Dodot1974.
I filed another claim for the $6.76 Freelancer.com charged for fees. The conartist, instead of sending me the original drawings I paid for, he sent me work that he had already sold to an author of a published children's book. Luckily, I googled all the works from his resume and noticed one character that was identical to the one I paid for. I contacted the author and she confirmed that the other characters he had sent me were also from her book. The author also told me that she had an exclusive rights contract for the drawings and the works were copyrighted.
The conartist is even listed on the book cover as the illustrator, Dodot Dokus. But he also goes by other names, including Dodot Asmoro or Antonius Setyo Asmoro. You can find his profile here: http://nozzlehead.net/about/about-the-artist/. And on youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwKXvPwXhxCxCLvt5sdDIxQ. Beware of this person! When I first reviewed his profile on Freelancer.com, he had no previous projects. But, I later found out that the book author also found him on Freelancer.com.
Apparently, fraudsters can create a new profile after they'e defrauded someone and start all over again with no checks from Freelancer.com. Freelancer.com perpetuates the fraud because it makes them money. They don't care that you've been ripped off. They still get to keep their fees and leave you holding the bag. Instead of helping in this case, they only tried to intimidate me into canceling my claims with Paypal. Shouldn't a company stand by its customers who have been defrauded? This is not their policy, so like I said, do not waste your money on Freelancer.com and stay away from Dodot Dokus, Dodot Asmoro, and Antoniius Setyo Asmoro!
