scammers for hire and profits off of victims

I tried to address my concern through Freelancer Chat but was just kicked off when I mentioned I need to involve the media.

You are so correct about them!

I awarded my project to a scammer who kept contacting me offsite asking for money to be paid up front. In Freelancer, he could have required a milestone with his bid, but he did not. Even with a milestone, the money is held until the job is done. But this guy wanted full payment.

I brought this to attention, providing the gmails from him, and the Freelancer rep said all I can do is repost my and will have to pay all new fees to them.

They allow 3rd world scammers on their site, and it is bad enough this guy has been bugging me all day for two days now, and I am required to pay all new listing fees to go back and repost. And Freelancer will take no action with the bidder, who has no feedback or track record with them. He will wait for his next prey.

I reposted my project on I had nothing but good experiences with them.

I regret trying Freelancer. The fees were somewhat hidden which contributed to my mistake.
