Petra thanks for posting the Chart it's awesome. I accepted a project through Freelancer and am finding out it's a scam. Even without this chart my spidy senses were alarmed. With all the "corporate" fraud training I have gone through in the past there some flags that told me "its not real"
-chatting on hangouts
-setting up your own website (to sell "art" to customers)
-having payments be sent to your personal address
-asking for bank details

I got this too. The email/invite used unclear english, gave me an email to contact and told me to use google hangouts.
And, when I go to accept the invitation - the job is closed. The job also seems way below my skill/pay level.
How do I report them? I just started here and I'm getting some great work. I don't want annoying people like this spaming me.
