I opened an account on Getafreelancer.com as a buyer and posted three projects and deposited some funds. Mysteriously i saw that the money in my account set on minus without purchasing anything or buying anything. I started to suspect getafreelancer.coms honesty. So I asked them to refund my money back to my paypal account. I have also attached the transaction IDs and they replied there are no money to refund! I asked them to check the paypal. I wrote them well their company received the money and they should refund it. They did not listen to me. I right away sensed another ripoff, so I opened a dispute on paypal for the money I deposited on paypal. When I opened a dispute, getafreelancer.com suspended my account and wrote Due to security reasons, we have to suspend your account. Please contact Paypal regarding this issue and update us. I wrote them they should refund my funds on paypal. The payment goes to firstname.lastname@example.org The following is my transaction
IDS 1- Unique Transaction ID #0E072388N5891153J $10.45
2-Unique Transaction ID #527553445R160881L $10.45
3-Transaction ID: 9W627336BW493360K $18.73 I opened a dispute on paypal: Oct. 10, 2009 PP-805-899-115 Oct. 10, 2009 PP-805-895-345 ,Oct. 9, 2009 PP-805-090-352 I also called paypal on the phone and explained what happened. This freelance website has suspended my account because of opening a dispute on Paypal for asking a refund for products that I did not receive! I provided my Paypal transaction ID, but they are playing games with me. They also asked for my ID or passport and I believe my Paypal Transaction ID is enough. Because of online fraud activities I will not provide them a copy of passport or Government ID.
Do not trust Getafreelancer.com All I wanted/want is to get refund. These people are fraud and Paypal knows it as well.
My money is gone ! I admit this is nothing compare to these guys who lost their money: See here more rip-off reports:
I told to my friends , colleagues, I twitted their scam on twitter, facebook and myspace. I also contacted my countrys authorities, police department, The Consumer Council of Norway, International online crime and some other instances to investigate this scam website.
They steal our money and think they can survive on the internet by scamming people!
THEY CANNOT GETAWAY WITH IT. I WONT LET THEM ! I WONT LET THEM TO DO THE SAME THING WITH OTHER PEOPLE!
I SPREAD THE WORD and THE SKY IS MY LIMIT!
I wrote them: DO NOT RUIN EVEYTHING FOR A few dollars! They did not care what I wrote.
BTW! They have changed their name to Freelancer TM now FREELANCER.COM
I want everybody knows sooner or later they scam you too and get your money. Do not trust this website and their services.
DO not make a payment on their website via paypal.
Stay safe from online fraud.
