Signed up and contacted a few freelancers. Decided to hire local and simply stopped talking to them. 6 months later, I saw a $2.50 charge from them. I logged in to see what was happening. One of the freelancers was charging me small amounts (so I wouldn't notice) even though no tasks were given, and no hiring was done. They have totaled to about $100. Contact upwork and the response "It has been too long, nothing we can do. Here is a credit of $2.50 for the most recent one."
Ask for a supervisor and still nothing. Time for a bank chargeback, and a complaint with the BBB. This company is a horrible SCAM!
Believe the horrible reviews, this company is the worst freelancer company out there.
