    when you see a job posted on elance or odesk, is there a black hat way of finding out who posted the job? As in, getting their contact info so you can email and/or call them directly to make your pitch?

    On odesk sometimes name is visible. On elance as I remember the name is always visible

    I'm using odesk mostly, if you'll need any help - you can contact me, I have good account there with lots of great feedback

    No it's not! I work on Elance as freelancer and buyer. Mostly buyers don't show their name.

    I have been actively working on Elance and Odesk. It is not possible to get their contact info but you can try their name on skype but the probability is very less.

    I think there is no need to contact directly. Elance system protects from the unfair buyers, who can disappear after work is done.

    You can only see the name of the job poster. You can't see his email or contact info.
