So Matt Barrie has released an article relating to the Sydney pub lock out laws. Basically he argues that the laws were created under false pretenses to give James Packers Casino a monopoly for early hours drinking, which effectively saved the company. His accusation seems to have merit, but it may not be his article at all.
If one digs a little deeper into Matt Barrie one finds he is the CEO of Freelancer an Australian listed company which more or less runs a escrow scam ripping off employers and contractors by being the man in the middle that holds the bag for payments between the parties and frequently keeps the money or withholds it for extensive periods of time for no good reason.

some examples of the freelancer scams:
Freelancer is a Fraudulent rip off. They will try and steal you money. Its hard to believe that this company is still aloud to operate with so many contractors and Employers being ripped off. I wish i did product review search before I used them. Im $921 out of pocket for nothing in return. Their support is the worst in the world. No telephone support like other companies and terrible email support and response times.
Here is my story. I hired a contractor to do some website work after paying one of freelancers staff a fee of $32 fee to recommend the best freelancer for the job. I interviewed the contractor they recommended, I awarded the job to him and we agreed on a timeframe to complete the work. I then paid $800 for the job plus other admin fees $27 & $18 to Freelancer . Once I had paid freelancer the funds, the contractor then said he was going on holidays and would not be free much to do the work. We clearly discussed the time frame and he assured me he was available to complete the job. But then as soon as the job was awarded and moneys transfer to Freelancer the contractor told me he is now not available much to do the work.
I needed to get the job done and decided to get somebody else to do the work from a different agency. The contractor demanded he gets paid $100. Basically for just the job interview. No work had started or documents were provided to the contractor. I told him its ridiculous you wanted to get paid for briefly discussing the job over skype, but he demanded to get paid $100 for the job interview. I contacted Freelancer support and they told me there was an arbitration process that had to be followed. So I did that and paid another $42. The contractor backed down and I was won the dispute. They still will not release my money back to me even though i clearly won and no work has even started.
Freelancer has now locked my funds and mentioned in the notes that this matter will be resolved in 64 days. 64 days my friends, can you believe it 64 days. They has asked me to supply my passport , rates notices and other proof of id. I thought this was ridiculous but as this was not need in the beginning but did as they requested. Absolutely made no difference. Their poor support has disappeared.
This drama has been going on for 3months now. Im $921 out of pocket. I can not get a refund or use the money to get any work done.
Its not worth it to ever use this company. There are other better reputable alternatives with support.
64 days time frame to solve a support ticket is ridiculous, can your business afford that?
I was working with a freelancer when they suddenly locked me out of my account and refused to reply to emails. The milestones were cancelled, so the freelancer was not even paid, although she had partly delivered the job. 60 USD of mine got fraudulently seized. I wish I checked reviews before signing up to them. I knew there were schemes like this, but I didn’t expect such a big site to be one. I can’t believe it still operates.
I received a response: “It is stated in our Terms & Conditions that Freelancer.com may terminate the participation of a User if we think that they are creating problems, legal liabilities (actual or potential), infringing someone else’s intellectual property rights, engaging in fraudulent, immoral or illegal activities, or for other similar reasons”.
I merely ordered two articles for my website.
Ashley Madison database hack exposes UK Greek Islam convert/ sharia law extremist.
Transactions totaling $174, an initial payment of $54 followed by 8 monthly payments of $15 for the period between 22 October 2014 and 19 June 2015, were discovered attached to the name of Hamza Andeas Tzortzis.
Of course he has tried to deny it.
But here’s the data:
There are another 16 lines of his monthly payments, but accounting is a bit boring.
Gee that’s an odd IP address for some who live in the UK, Sydney Australia?
Maybe Hamza has a point….
Well, then you do a little more digging and find out that that is exactly when Hamza was in Sydney, and don’t say we are making it up, its on his own blog.
He admits he was in Sydney on that exact day, on his own blog.
22 October, Wednesday
6PM – 9PM: Lecture “Islam and the Secular Mind”. Hosted by MSA NSW. UWS, Miperra, Sydney.
Hamza Andeas Tzortzis: A massive hypocrite who by his own words should be stoned to death for adultery.
So Muslims please show your devotion and stone the adulterer to death, it’s your belief system, I just want you to be consistent with it.
So just in case you have forgotten your procedure, I have included a quick tutorial to make sure you get it right.
So why exactly are we allowing these insane hypocrites into Australia?
