Well, I applied a job on Odesk and the employer send me a link directed to Ezdia.com and has 'escrow' on it before it was canceled by the customer support from Odesk.com because it was said that the job posts was violated the rules on Odesk. The employer wants to have a conversation with me on Ezdia.com, but I wasn't sure because I am so tired to sign up again on EZdia.com. I am so tired reading the TOS, the policy and then, searching on google if EZdia.com is a scam or not. I do not want to waste my energy and effort just to know if EZdia.com is a scam or not because I have already done all of these things on Odesk.com -- reading the TOS, the policy and so on. So, I am just curious if anyone had already been paid on EZdia.com? What is your experience on EZdia.com? Is it a scam? Is it worth or is it just a waste of time? I am familiar with Elance, Guru, Scriptlance, GetaFreelancer and Odesk.com, but not with EZdia.com because it is my first time to hear EZdia.com as a freelancing job site on the internet.

Never heard before but I hope if you join the site, you would make us aware of it by your own experience.

I have never heard of this company either, and I looked to see if there was any scam but could not find any. If they do not request any money to sign up, I would give them a try.

The employer breaks the rules on oDesk which are put there to protect you. The employer sends you the name of a site to use. Put 2 and 2 together. If oDesk deletes their job because it breaks their terms, there's a HUGE chance the employer's trying to scam you. They give you another site to use because - presumably - that site doesn't delete their job post... and just how does this protect you? It doesn't. While that doesn't mean anything for EZdia (which could be absolutely legitimate, I don't know - I'd never heard of it either), it doesn't say much for the client, the job, your chance of getting paid or EZdia's security/ethics/other settings.
