GetAFreelancer.com Complaint - GetAFreelancer.com Scam

Review by exposer20 on 2009-09-17
GetAFreelancer.com is a Scam. They expect a $5 publishing fee, but when you try to pay the $5 using paypal, you get a message saying they have a $10 minimum deposit. So you have to end up paying $10 to deposit $5 because they WILL NOT accept a $5 deposit even though that is what the charge is to publish your job posting.

Now is that STUPID or what? Other reputable companies like RentaCoder, Guru, Elance, ScriptLance, Project4Hire.com etc does not expect any fees upfront. I wrote to GetAFreelancer.com Customer service and pointed out how rediculos it was that they are charging a $5 publishing fee, buy refuse to take less than a $10 minimum deposit and they refused to do anything about it.

Best thing to do is avoid them and take your business to a reputable company.

Never have anything to do with PayPal. I tried to purchase an e-book, and was given teh choice of using a credit card or PayPal. I chose the card, as I had had trouble with PayPAl and wanted nothing to do with them. They stuck their nose in the transaction and locked up some of our funds in our account, AFTER informing me that I could not make the purchase as I did not have a PayPal account. It is not really GetALancer.com. but PayPal that is your problem.
