I'd hired a contractor through Peopleperhour.com (PPH) to edit a website.  I'd chosen a company called We Are Your Coder.  One of the stipulations was that the deadline has to be met or else they would not get paid.  They'd assured me that there would be no problem and I let them set the actual deadline. 

Shortly after a proposal was agreed upon and funds were put into escrow, communication with the IT contractor showed that they had very little coding experience and could not complete the work at all.  They'd done about 20% of the actual job and still missed the deadline.  I'd told them that I'd look for another programmer. 

I'd contacted Peopleperhour.com and told them what had happened and that I'd need my escrowed funds returned.  (You have to put money in escrow before you hire anyone.)  The contractor told an outright lie to PPH that they'd finished the job.  I'd directed PPH to the email trail on their own site so they could see where the vendor stated, themselves, that they had not finished the work and had agreed to forfeit payment if the deadline was missed - which it was.  Everything was in writing.  A cut and dried case, right?   

Well, PPH paid the contactor anyway.  I'd reminded them of their money back guarantee, but they've ignored my complaints.  Finally, I'd asked for the names of the individual(s) who own Peopleperhour, but they refused to give me the owners' name(s).  As a result, in addition to paying for work that wasn't performed, I've had to hire a new contractor (from a different company, of course) and pay their fees as well.

Definitely a rip-off.  Their site implies that you don't have to pay for unsatisfactory work.  Well, in my case the contractor agreed to the proposal, then broke the agreement and PPH handed them my money, anyway.   Dealing with Peopleperhour.com means literally throwing your money away.
