    I was a little backed up so I paid this Odesk user (Sarah Lyn Daaca) to do some local citations. They did a couple of orders without too many problems. I'm paying by the hour I have you. I then get a charge out of nowhere. I stay on top of my stuff so I knew I had already paid them for the work completed. I message this woman and she claims I had sent her another local citation order. I knew I had not. So I ask her to show me the citation order. She had nothing. Her story then changes twice, she claims she charged me 7 billing hours because she had to check over the orders, then claims that she redid one of the previous orders I sent. It was clear at that point that she had ripped me off. She refuses to send back the money so at this point I'm forced to start a dispute. I figure this would be cut and dry. Surprisingly Odesk sides with her because "she clocked the billing hours" and that's all the proof they need. Very shady stuff. Lesson learned. I had planned on sending Sarah Lyn Daaca more orders is the sad thing.

    I left some feedback for her which she gets to review for 2 weeks before it is posted. She has the nerve to ask me to change it, with some Christian sentiments to try to sway me.

    Here are a few nuggets:

    "Hi Sir,

    I respect for what you have said in your feedback since it is your perception to me about what was happen. Can we neglect and forget everything Sir? I want to give a good feedback for you regardless of the dispute and the misunderstanding we had because I believe that what we sow is what we reap...
    Thank you for the job we shared together. Hopefully you will leave me a better mark for me.Thank you very much.

    Regards,
    Sarah"

    " I believe that the Lord has a purpose for us and definitely it is not His will that we should go to hell. God loves us so much that He gave His precious Son Jesus for us. Whatever happens, I am really determine that I have joy, peace, love and assurance because I entrusted my life to Him.He set me free and forgive me from any bondage. I am enjoying my life now with His grace and mercy. God bless us all!

    In Christ,
    Sarah"

    "Amen! I thank you God for your wonderful word.Thank you Lord for loving us."

    "Thank you for the prayer Sir. May the Lord abundantly bless you."

    "Praise the Lord for everything! "

    I'm done with Sarah Lyn Daaca and Odesk.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have really come to hate that place. Good to see outside reviews instead of the manipulated crap most of the "coders" get away with on that site. I would like to see a separate section on here just for oDesk shit coders

    hmm... she seems legit to me because of others feedback and hours spent in the odesk...maybe you there is a misunderstanding between the two of you or try to ask her for a refund to remove the feedback you've given... I not side with here even though we are in the same country... but maybe there is a other alternative about it...

    Im also a odesk contractor and since 2011 im still working with my only australian client and they are here now in the philippines for vacation... it is really a matter of luck to find someone that is trustworthy these days....

    goodluck OP...

    regards Kiseki..

    It's possible. I tried everything to get a refund. I couldn't see how someone would be that greedy just to not refund the money. She blatantly lied about the hours.

    Can you take out the FB page URL from your post?
