Umar Tariq / Fraud, Time wasting, Lies -
The ad was clearly posted on Elance saying that I am looking for a professional link builder that can do 20 links a day. Because there are so many keywords, and the "time fraud" levels are very high (doing nothing, and billing for it) the ad clearly stated: "NO FIXED PRICE, ONLY HOURLY BASIS. IF YOU CANNOT DO IT, DO NOT APPLY". See, hourly basis, has this "Work View" feature, which takes 1-2 screen shots within 10 minutes range so that I could monitor if actual work is being done during the hours he is logging- making sure he isnt going to facebook, shopping sites or messaging friends or other employers. Fixed price - does not have this feature.
So he applied, I granted him the job, sent him instructions, and now.. On April 21 he asked for fixed price. I told him that his job is hourly job, and thats what the ad said. Now I asked on April 22 how did the things go - no response, and then I asked again on April 23 - eventually he responded asking for fixed price once again and saying that nothing was done.
The reason he does not like hourly - is "because he doesnt like being monitored". So you can imagine... what he must be doing, if he "does not like" to be monitored..
Stay away from this guy - he wastes the time perfectly without even apologizing.
