What a crock of crap. Stay away from this freelancing site. I had a gig on there for writing. I bid on a couple of different jobs, and won them. Freelancer . com automatically charged me a percentage of the job (20 three hundred word articles @ $3\ea). Then after being awarded the job I never heard from the employers...twice. I have no idea if this is something the website is doing, or what's going on, but it's just not worth weeding through all of the hundreds of jobs just to, maybe, find one legit employer. Going on two weeks now and I'm still trying to get my money back.
