PeoplePerHour People Per Hour has a Fake Escrow system - use Elance instead London, Internet
I worked as a freelancer on Every job I did received a four or five start review. That is, the buyer was satisfied with my work. I never started any job unless the buyer put the funds in escrow. The escrow system that People Per Hour has is meant to insure that a contractor (like me) will be paid if we complete the job. I did complete the Job AND the buyer gave me five starts. Did I get paid ... nope. People Per Hour said that they wanted more proof that the buyer wanted to pay me. Really? The credit card transaction was NOT fraudulent and there was no charge back. Also, there was no complaint from the customer. It seems that the escrow system on People Per Hour is fake - unlike On that site, I have always been paid when the buyer places funds into escrow. Beware - don't use

Peopleperhour Hired contractor We Are Your Coder through Peopleperhour. Contractor did maybe 20% of the work then wanted payment claiming it was completed. I'd told Peopleperhour who responded by turning my escrow London, SW6 1RR, Other
I'd hired a contractor through (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 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 means literally throwing your money away.

Hi there, I hired these guys services to design an EPK for $60 the girl who was suppose to design this. Once I accepted the proposal I had to send numerous emails back & forth to ask her to create something better and not a sub standard cheap design. Because the service was so poor i cancelled the deal but they the website took my entire $60 and i got nothing ... How can they do do you pay for a service without getting a service at all?

Kumar Vaibhav who operates at odesk freelancer and people per hour as well as elance has scammed my company of over 1200 usd in monies we paid to them. It all started out nicely when we paid him an advance of 400 dollars for guest posting. He had a neat profile which later we found out was fake and made by his friends giving him fake feedback but we had simply no idea 2 weeks into the project we asked for an update on the money paid he asked us for an additional sum to be able to complete the project citing he had issues as he was being asked money from webmasters he owed as well as having financial problems Since we already paid him 400 we wanted to ensure the project got delivered and paid him an additional 800 on the condition all work would be delivered within the week He also asked us to leave feedback and we did as we had no idea how odesk worked and took advantage of this in a very immoral and unethical way Since then he does not respond and even the few posts we had made are now deleted   We are completely out of luck here and kept contacting Kumar Vaibhav on his other profiles   This SCAMMER has stolen our money and will likeluy do this to many others so we are posting this here as a warning. I hope he comes to justice Kumar if you read this give us our money back and stop being a crook If you are addicted to a substance which I think he might be from the actions he took as well as the conversations we had you need to seek help I hope the authorities will do this ASAP and lock you up good and proper SCAMMER!!!

PeoplePerHour Buyer for my team's work and paid nothing London, UK Internet
I had a team working for 8 months for Ben Goodenough.Requirements changed, a lot changed, more features added, etc.We couldn't complete everything on time, as normal, so Ben decided he'd ask for a refund on his deposit, having already source code for 2 sites and 2 mobile apps with him, all running and installed on his server. This scam website PeoplePerHour after disputes etc decided to refund him the full thing on a basis that since I'm a new seller he gets a refund, no questions asked. Even if I completed the full work (which me and my team were always willing and committed to doing) he could just ask for a refund, and under PPH's T&Cs he gets to keep the work and get all of his deposit back, keeping everything for free. My question is, how is this website still up? Clearly illegal and defrauding people. I was unable to pay my team and this guy Ben Mills or Ben Goodenough, from Birmingham (he has multiple aliases) just refuses to pay. The websites he's running for free (at our expense) are: and  I don't want full payment for unfinished work, I want fair compensation for the work done. which is around 90-95% of all that was agreed upon. Ben never wanted this, then he'd have to pay, or not, since PPH facilitates not paying and still keeping everything. This website must be taken down.

I have been scammed the seller Kevin G That claims to be Kevin Gray  owner of Alpha Digital company website :  claims to be worker at google and a complete fake profile. Wasted two weeks of my time, turned out to be a fake profile using an IP address from the Phillipines. He charged me 67$ to fix my website, he did not deliver work as agreed its was not incomplete 70% in full, he said he would on round #2 complete all the job if I paid an additional 60$ I was desperate so I wrote a good review for him on People per hour in hopes he would complete the website and not to hack my website  to complete the job. He said the work would be done in 48hours 2 weeks later he gives me times and dissapears. 45$ Where deposited in the escrow account on I have requested a refund. Now he wants to get paid in full on the second round after delaying a 48 hour quote to two weeks and not completing the job. I am not paying him or PPH i have disputed charges on my Paypal account. I will loose money if I have to but they are not getting a penny from me for scamming me !  This Kevin Gray uses an Avatar picture of a boy, acts smart like he has employees and an office in the UK with a Phillipines IP address and is really rude. People per hour It is the worst platform over charging people fees and I am 100% sure his fake profile works for People per hour to do this and earn fees for the company. Not only do they not refund people but they defend scammers! I will dispute charges till I die they are not getting one penny from me! Worst company ever !PEOPLE PER HOUR is a terrible platform. Anyone can sign up there is no agreement or standard. Many people on there are money hungry, will mess up your website to always come back. You get charged incredible fees to get refunded unlike Fiverr and Upwork. You have to wait over 5 days for funds to go back to your Paypal account to withdraw funds and send your set of life personal documents and get discouraged. You have to wait over 48 hours to get refunded and if someone does not deliver a job and on weekends no refunds you wait till Monday, unlike Upwork and Fiverr. If someone scams you hacks your website and still gets paid they will defend them. I have wasted 3 months of my life and all resources on this platform to get a decent website and have not fell upon one decent person, the customer service is generic its always the same response. None is in control, 80% of sellers never respect a deadline will pretend they can do a job and are incompetent show they are top rated not sure what these rates are based on. I have 100% suspiscions some fake accounts may be from PPH due to the volume of terrible experiences I have had and number of fake accounts. I have wasted 900$ and not gotten a decent or complete website. I am waiting for 27$ to withdraw back to my Paypal account and 45$ for a fake seller to accept a refund for wasting 2 weeks of my life and not completing a job, HE NOW WONT REFUND AND I WILL HAVE TO DISPUTE THE CHARGES. And than I will loose a nice chunk of that in their fees and time I cant get back. Its like an open street and your getting robbed in broad daylight and none is helping you and it gets worst.  I HAVE BEEN ROBBED FOR 3 MONTHS BY PEOPLE PER HOUR BY FAKE PROFILES AND THIS FAKE PROFILE KEVIN G GRAY FROM DIGITAL ALPHABET. He uses the same rebuttals as people per hour and their customer services response he clearly works for them. I was scammed by his fake profile through People Per Hour. I hope they will all rot in hell!!
