Freelancer.com / Illegal Charge to my bank account

JPO1713 on Jul 15, 2016
Fortunately my problem is not as severe as other complaints with this company. Using Freelancer it was obvious that they illegally charge my account several times without reason or description. I closed the account a month ago, and today they charged me $31 without explanation. All you can do is send a online message and complain to the bank.
