Anyone have experience with guru.com? It's a job board, basically, and they submit invoices for you and you can use an "escrow account." I read the website in great detail, and the fact that there was SO MUCH detail gave me hope that they may be legit...but once I signed up for the free "basic" account, I was soon aware that without the $75-for-three-months "guru" level account, I was eligible to bid on exactly 1 out of the 632 jobs in the writer/editor/translator category, and that job was clearly... well, let's just say I assessed it as "nutty."
Then I googled "guru.com review" and the top one was rateitall and nearly 20 posters, employers and employees alike, slammed guru as a scam. Have you tried it? How'd it work for you? I'm steering clear for now.
