Freelancer.com has a wonderful mission, execution is a bit rough
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – January 6, 2019
Freelancing sites have their work cut out for them. Many are overrun with spam, cheap clientele, or straight-up scams. Freelancer.com had a time a little while ago that they were falling prey to this. Since then, they've tightened things up and the site is a lot better for finding good jobs. I prefer them above Upwork, because Upwork's screening is detailed, but they also accidentally ban a lot of good freelancers based on a very sensitive algorithm.

This company has a poor screening process and allows many projects to be fake. These projects have bugs that allow money to be instantly withdrawal from your payment source. They do not value true remote workers and the money involved.
