Hi, I'm new to freelancing and decided to try Freelancer. I've been on less than a week and I'm going to close my account based on my experience so far and based on feedback like I'm reading here. I estimate more than 75% of the jobs being posted are scams. And their wording is so repetitive, a reputable company should be able to develop algorithms to block them. I got chats for 2 of the jobs that I bid on that seemed less sketchy ... and both of them were scammers lol. I have bid on a few jobs but my bid has not been accepted on any of them (it sounds like that's lucky for me!). Their customer support sucks, too.
