    Priceless

    I also laughed seeing

    Budget: $30-250

    But I had to wonder at

    $ 119

    If I could put together a site with an $18K+/yr income I know I'd do it for $119

    There has been four bids, $30, $40 and two at $200. Average bid $117.50.

    The bit that got me was "...first there will be trial....that is for 2 days ...then only i will give you the full amount...".

    Earn at least $50/day for two days otherwise the guy will not pay!!!!

    The mind boggles.

    And that's why I gave up trying to work with freelance sites like guru and elance.

    90% of the jobs are ridiculous, fraudulent or are have so many low paying bids that it's not financially viable to bother with them.

    they just jump in without reading the fine print, then they complain afterwards.
