Not only do sellers blatantly lie about their experiences, the price of services has gone astronomical with the addition of fees on the buyers, AND sellers of the platform. The exorbitant fees are NOT equal to the value this platform provides, and sure as hell does not help maintain their platform and "administration" fees. There are much bigger companies that deal directly with financial transactions (such as PayPal) who don't charge fees on top of fees to run their platform, so it is a pure money grab.
I used to use the platform years ago, but it has slowly become worthless over time. Presumably because sellers got tired of the fees and moved on, and now people who over-promise do so because they can't get work otherwise. What a way to tank a great business.
