Complaint: Freelance.com is a popular site that features jobs in all skill sets. After gettting their so called cerficiations, I applied to several jobs as a writer. A window popped up that I was hired to be a virtual assitant for $600. I said no I don’t want this job but it accepted it. Immediately they billed my Paypal for $60. The company never provided any work, any money or even answered the phone. When I complained to the support guy he was very arrogant, and kept saying that they get their commission it was my problem to get money from the guy and should be careful. I said this was a scam, and finally threatned him with the police. He wouldn’t end my account so I had to erase every trace of my profile. He wouldn’t change my phone number and I could not remove it. So then he said he was refunding me $60 but I had to give him my Paypal account again to get it. I said no thanks, I’ll just resolve it with Paypal and that the certificates I paid for that day were no good since the entire site is a complete and total scam. It was shocking to me since I had heard of this site before, but I guess this is how they run these sites. They also try for your credit card, but I did not give them this. Paypal is now investigating to see if there are others who suffered the same fate of getting chraged for a fake job that never paid off, you never applied for, and no one ever answered the phone and youc ould not cancel out! This is taking advantage of people looking for work.
