I recently opened a project on www.freelancer.com and a person with this profile https://www.freelancer.com/u/B00T.html messaged me and provided me his skype id : appsgiant, when i added him on skype and talked to him he said he needs $50 advance to start working on my project and he said he will deliver me the work in 2 days his name is Ishtiaq. I had a fraud previously by developer named Karim Metallaoui for my project now this developer who is Ishtiaq provided me his mobile number which is 00801670674514 he lives in bangladesh when i tried to call him there was no ring tone i asked him why your mobile is not ringing he said its switched off. I was worried as i saw his ratings on his profile https://www.freelancer.com/u/B00T.html and was convinced he is real guy who provides quality work, it was almost 17 hours i talk to him then he came online on skype and asked me if i have paid money through neteller to email mirkhy@gmail.com, his another email is havana.katty@gmail.com and he said he has already made some work for me and said he will come online after i made the payment through www.neteller.com in 20 minutes again on skype as his mom is calling for lunch then i paid him $50 from website www.neteller.com and guess what after sending payment from neteller its been almost 10 hours and he removed me from skype contacts, a fraud guy from bangladesh took my $50.. [continued below]....


Just now i contacted Neteller and lady picked up the phone i asked her to reverse the transaction which i made to email mirkhy@gmail.com couple of hours ago and she said this account belongs to someone named Ishtiaq Mehmood. I told her this guy is a fraud and just reverse transaction which i did within 24 hours but the neteller lady told me to go to police WHAT ? Yes she told me to go to police in my city where i live which is outside United States Don't pay to anyone using Neteller as all fraud people uses Neteller. There is no help from Neteller at all.

Please check these screenshots


This is the second time i have came across a fraud, one from united states who is karim metallaoui and another Ishtiaq Mehmood.

Why do you allow fraud people on your website ?

AUTHOR: Ahmed - ()

Why do you allow fraud people on your website and then recommend it to us.

The freelancer https://www.freelancer.com/u/B00T.html bid on my project and here is the screenshot of freelancer fraud whom you recommended to me http://gyazo.com/c8b5f69434a075ef1d60606da3799139

Here is the screenshot of his messages to me http://gyazo.com/dbea476c9a0a0f95f4c9b339753444b3 providing his skype id : appsgiant

Here is his skype profile : http://gyazo.com/ab791e5c2123a17dab48c257fbc9387e

He asked me for $50 to be paid through neteller (www.neteller.com) after showing his profile on www.freelancer.com and after www.freelancer.com recommended me to him i was convinced to work with him.

This fraud guy from bangladesh told me he will work with me only if i pay him initial payment and took my $50 now after getting payment from neteller on this email mirkhy@gmail.com he removed me from skype contacts see this screenshot http://gyazo.com/d675733af528b4081812021347c076b3

If you want more screenshots i will provide you complete chat history, now there is a new way for freelancers to make fraud from freelancer.com to employers they simply rate themselves by posting projects with different user ids and freelancer.com recommends them to its employers.

You can clearly see how this person cheated me with all screenshots and how he invited me on skype and scammed me.

My username on freelancer.com is khanahmedabbas i am doing internet from last 25 years and i have been scammed because trusted website like freelancer.com recommended me this freelancer as i was convinced that freelancer.com is trusted website but no its not.

Hi Ahmed,

This is Abe from Freelancer.com. I understand that you have encountered issues with the freelancer that you have hired through our website.

Since the payments were done through Neteller, we won't be able to assist you with recovering the payments that you transferred to them; however, we can refund the project fees that were charged to your Freelancer.com account if needed.

Kindly send us your username along with the Project ID so we can investigate your case. You can also send me an email at support@freelancer.com. Just make sure that you indicate that the email is for Abe so Support can forward the case directly to me.

Kind Regards,

Abe I.
