What an absolutely horrible experience! I own an e-commerce company based in Istanbul, Turkey. We needed some changes in our Shopify website so I hired a freelancer on Freelancer.com, I deposited some funds for a milestone payment and within 24 hours it got canceled by itself and I had to create the milestone again which means I paid the commission TWICE!
I let it go since it was only a few bucks, when I deposited the funds again since the project took a little longer than expected, Freelancer.com wants me to authenticate my credit card for a "small charge" (what the...?). I seriously could not get my head around this total scam so I skipped and lo and behold, I must now verify my account by keeping a number given by Freelancer.com next to my ID card or the freelancer I hired won't get paid! Absolutely pathetic.
I have been making online payments for over 10 years and this is the first time I have been asked to put my freaking ID card next to my face, right next to the number given by stupid website. Unbelievable.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
