This post has taken a long time to write as I have been thoroughly researching for viable and better alternatives to the scam being run by Matt Barrie. Here is a list of the various sites that I have compiled over the past few weeks:-
These are the three sites on which I have registered and used the same for some time to ensure that they were legit and did not cause problems similar to the ones that plague the con artists at freelancer(dot)com
So please request your freelancer colleagues and employers (both present and prospective) who have been using freelancer(dot)com to shift to the sites mentioned above.
Some of the salient features provided by the sites I have mentioned are:-
a.) Milestone payments possible
b.) Escrow facility available
c.) Very very helpful, non robotic and non moronic support staff
d.) Various safeguards against fraudulent freelancers and employers
So my dear friends, ardent supporters and all those who have been scammed by Matt Barrie, please take a look at the sites that I have mentioned in this post and feel free to continue working independently without being hassled for your personal information.
I request readers to leave the names of some other websites that meet the aforementioned criteria as comments on this post.
It has come to our attention that the project “Quick / fun blog articles on current events” requires the same skill set that you have. We have been in touch with the employer “SustEnterprise,” and I am happy to inform you that we have recommended your services to them.
You may bid on the project if you are interested. To bid on the project, just click on the “Bid on this Project” button at the top or bottom of the bid listing to access the bid form. Enter your bid amount, the number of days for delivery, and any necessary details, then click the “Place Bid” button.
Once done, you can contact the other party to discuss the project in detail.
I admit, I was at a loss for words. The ‘Concierge’ department mailing me after all this time? How considerate of these B@ST@RDS.
That when these JERKW@DS had blocked my account many months ago and I have not logged into the site after that. They also publicly mentioned that the profile would be deleted ‘soon’.
Now, I am not interested in discussing whether this is just a trap that Matt Barrie’s team of expertly demented and mentally challenged advisers cooked up or it was just some tomfoolery on the behalf of a Mr. Albert Turner (who I am sure is as fake as Valerie Scott and Emir). Maybe it was just plain stupidity on the part of the self proclaimed messiah of the Australian IT industry of this century – Mr. Matt Barrie himself.
All I am interested in is replying to these scammers via this post – Whatever it is that you were trying to achieve via this email, please take it and shove it up your @sses you MOTHER F**KING SONS OF B*THCES,
P.S. – Maybe Matt Barrie needs a handout because the traffic to his website is at an all time low now. Check out Alexa Rankings
