Wow.. so there is fraud in the hiring process as well!? People Per Hour is one big FRAUD site! Do not Use them!! If you decide to.. do Not give them Any of your personal information. I was a buyer and was working on a game app. I needed a sellers help on applying leaderboards, IAPs, etc. It has been a Nightmare ever since and PPH Customer Service literally does Nothing about it. Kurt aka Spun1k is the sellers name. He has stolen my personal information from when i had to give him access to my gmail account so that he can work on my game that was on google play store. While he had access to my gmail account he had changed all my passwords, pins, backup emails, etc. He even took control of my phone, pictures, web, Credit Card info, etc and gave all my personal information to complete strangers so I was stuck having to deal with ID Fraud. He also deleted all my photos, contacts, Everything! by factory resetting my phone. I have advised PPH Customer Support of all this.. even probided detailed information and Picture proof. He even clearly states in the workflow that "I gave all your personal information to the black market ...something is coming.. dont you worry, etc".. all because i wouldnt release $40 to him for an incomplete job. PPH still has done Nothing. In fact these morons had the balls to ask me for Proof that I ever contacted the FBI, etc. Tuh! Can you believe it!? It has been almost a Year now and they refuse to give me my $40 refund. I have contacted authorities, given them all the information they needed, etc. and this business will surely be shut down soon. But until then I warn you Not to use these people. It is Not worth the headache. Not to mention he never could complete the task at hand but kept feeding me Lies to try and get more and more money out of me. Giving me excuses as to why it was taking so long, etc. Id post pictures of the workflow but conveniently they dont provide this option. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! FRAUD 100% ! BEWARE!


Just Happened to me!... CARLA C. level 5... yea right.

Freelancer with stolen account identity!

I posted a simple job, change the layout of pre-existing packaging, sent images of the old look with a good brief and new pics.

freelancer CARLA C. was chosen because they were level 5 and had nice looking portfolio work and fair price.

CARLA C was "allegedly" from Canada, It was clear from the interactions this person was not who they claimed to be.

They never read the spec, this was clear from the start!

The grammar was very off, words not making sense in the work stream, then when I felt something was up, I confronted the person outright and they replied that I had no evidence to prove this and bombarded me with random work just so they could claim they have done many revisions  and wanted to be paid.

I am knew to PPH, but I know a scam when I see one, and its my belief this person has acquired an old clients account or stole details from some where, then does the basic rubbish job with fake portfolio, which gives false confidence in the freelancers ability and the scamming freelancer knows the rules at PPH in order to get paid and the client gets screwed over! 

This is criminal and serious data protection issues. PPH has serious security issues.
