Had signed up with freelancer.com for a few years but only really got down to check it out these few weeks. Well, I had a project sent to me but the person would not reply me whenever I message him. And after reading many reviews on the internet, they said that it is a fraud. At the same time while i was going through, I saw some other websites such as vWorker.com and Freelance.com. But I'm not sure are they frauds as well. Can someone tell me which one is reliable? I only know websites like triond.com, wikinut.com and knoji.com are real because I had been working with them for at least a year and had receive money from them. But now, for vWorker.com and Freelance.com, I do not want to join them before I had my doubts clarify. Please help. Thanks alot.

I bid on a job at Freelancer, and was contacted by a woman who immediately wanted my email address - this is against the t's and c's of the site. She was very insistent, telling me about the job, etc. etc. She also said as soon as she got paid she would put the money in Freelancer - turns out she was outsourcing jobs she took. The job was supposed to be 5 articles - 1.00 an article (400 words each). I wrote 2 - and then she pressured me more and more for my email address, at which point I stopped. So I haven't gone back to the site. I don't mind writing for outsourcing sites (wish I knew more, in fact!) but as long as they are upfront.
