  • I need to know if this is true?

    I found many more complaints for the website. Also, why don't your support team solve the query on urgent basis.

    Freelancers from all over the world depend on your platform for their money and how can you suspend the account without notification, when there is money in that particular account and user is with you from last 6 years?

    Can you explain this. What kind of support you provide?

    There is no phone number, no response to tickets, mails sent, no online chat available.

    How do you advice to contact you people for help!

    I would like to know the answers.
