I wish I could rate them zero stars! Long story short, I performed over $600 USD in work for employers on Freelancer.com. When I tried to withdraw funds, Freelancer.com presented me with multiple requirements for identify verification. Although I did express myself in strong terms, I did comply with all of their requirements, sending ID, utility bill, photographs of myself holding ID and secured codes, and cell phone verification. They denied me at least 7 times, each time saying I had failed to provide the photograph. I took a second photograph and also expressed on my open ticket that although I could not remove the association with my PayPal account (else I could not receive the funds), I did withdraw any permission for them to continue to take funds from my account for their fees. They responded by "unregistering" my account. (I kept screenshots showing my account, including transaction history and PayPal verification - I had read that others had their accounts deleted during "Freelancer verification".)
My research turned up numerous reviews with stories just like mine - I should have gone with my gut, but I chose to give them the benefit of the doubt. I hope this review will help prevent others from a similarly costly experience. Thankfully, I believe in justice in the end - those who steal from others will receive their due.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
