It's been flagged so many times, but they still seem to keep coming back. I don't understand the point of having a flag button if this can happen. What needs to happen is that someone should review the job posts before they're allowed to go live on the site. I think that a moderator is needed.

There's a post that keeps popping up in the transcription category where they even congratulate the people they hire in the post. Thing is they just keep posting the job and never verify payment or hire anyone which tells me they are taking the contractors off oDesk. I have flagged it and opened a ticket about it. And they still post several times a day.

I would give the client the benefit of the doubt and say he might be migrating content from one of his own so sites to another one of his sites, but he previously hired someone to scrape software and his hourly rates have ranged from 0.56 to 3 dollars. Job posts need to be checked before they're published.
