I was seek of internet job, one day browsing webs it happen to see GOFREELANCE site on my screen so I was attracted seeing only one $1 cost to register the web, seeing this I thought of registering the site and entered all data it ask there is one column where my paypal password was asked I put my password thinking that they may draw only one dollar as they asked. After couple of days day when I log in my paypal account I saw $49.95 was disappear from my account .I started tracing it was GO FREELANCE who took my money .That is the mistake I made, do not u think I become so stupid giving password .Do not u make suck mistake like me .After that I tried to log in GOFREWELACE was not able to .I could not believe that such a high reputed can do such thing .

we all learn from our mistake you better be careful next time. Usually legit sites only ask for your paypal address not the password. This is a very bad experience did you try to contact gofrewlace support already for this?

I am 99% certain that the site did NOT ask for a PayPal password. I think he means PayPal ID/email address.

Where did you get the impression that the site was "high reputed"???? See the search I did below! You did NOT read the Terms or the FAQs properly before you joined. If you had, you would have seen that they state that you have a three day trial period for $1 and thereafter $49.95 will be deducted every month for membership of the site. I doubt very much that they asked for your PayPal password. They would have asked for your PayPal ID (email), however. There are literally dozens of sites which warn about this site. Just check out some of them here: http://search.mylot.com/search.aspx?t=web&k=GOFREELANCE You should NEVER pay anyone to give you work, anyway! If they have set up a recurring payment from your PayPal account, go to your PayPal account NOW and cancel it. Then read the Terms of GoFreelance to see how you should go about reclaiming your money. I believe that they say that you have to provide evidence that you have applied to at least FIVE of the sites they recommended and that you were unsuccessful. You cannot really claim that the site is a scam because everything that they do is actually stated in the Terms but they are certainly using very underhand methods to deprive people of their money. As always, it is a case of "Let the Buyer Beware!"
