Client Preferences - Location and Skills Filter Not Working?

Every time I post a job having filtered for a specified location and certain skills, I get the opposite of what I requested. For example, I set the default to Europe, instead I get five people applying from Bangledesh (which is in Asia). Is there some fault with the filter system?

Those are preferences, not "filters" or "requirements" - Freelancers can still apply even if their profile does not match all preferences.

Hi Doug,

 

I can confirm Petra's reply that freelancers from other locations can still submit a proposal for your job.

I join the original question that I send is ment otherwise.
I look to hire a competency in a specific town or state, but results systematically ignore my just this field of filter.
That resulted in two (of 3offered and) wasted job proposition sendings of mine since I thought I was in a list matching all my filtercriterias - but only some.
