    1. That site is a scam. It has nothing to do with our company. We do not send out contracts.

    1. The fake/scam company is contacting people through Freelancer. That is not our company. We do not use Telegram either.

  1. Hi, i just got this scammer under name Crystal Publishing House through Freelancer site. But, i jusy want to make sure that Crystal Publishing will never connect via Telegram, right?

    1. Our company does not use Telegram. We do not solicit for work nor send out contracts.

    2. Hi, I’ve got the same issue. Did you got some answers from the person who contacted you?

      1. We do not use Telegram. You are being scammed by a fake website.

      2. I had the same issue, under the name of Terry Hoffman?!..
        Here’s his telegram ID

  2. It happened to me too. And I need the job so badly. But I am not naive, and ckecked it out. Thank you so much!

  3. I have been completely scammed. They asked me to do a project for them which took me about 25 hours. I signed a contract and everything. They approved the project and “processed the payment”. They then messaged me saying that the money will not be processed until I pay a $350 bank processing levy fee. At this point I realised I have been scammed. Such a waste of time and frustrating as the pay would have been ideal.

    1. luckily i havent send the so called contract which they ask me to return to them after I signed up.

    It was sad that I would like take some job through Freelancer. luckily I have checked your company before I signed up for the ‘Remote employee Contract’ and found this ‘Note.’ I think your company must aware of this situation and stop this fake/scam company.

    Anyway, thanks for your “warning notes” to save some people who are looking for a job opportunity, and hopefully one day I get a chance to work with your company.

  5. This guy Terry Hofman means already scammed or wasted our time so much, try to report this user in the freelance to get rid of him.

    Be watchful and careful guys

  6. I almost died, doing job within 3 hours sleep on 3 days, they give me a freelance job. I already finished it, but wow i just got scam

      1. Thanks for addressing the name! Joe Smith
        @smith_crystalexecutive is on Upwork today asking freelancers to use Telegram for more infos after submitting the proposal

  7. I just got scam. I have been through a lot to finish their works and asked me this $350 for the international money transfer fee. Ahh they are rude, since I have seen a lot scams but never give their project first.

  8. This guy named Terry Hoffman is also contacting me through Telegram saying that you need some people who are good at converting images into a word document file or pdf. I almost accepted his offer, lucky for me I checked your website first.

  9. The guy I was working with is Brendan. He said i should send $350 to clear my payment….. made me waste my time

  10. I saw the following job on freelancer.com:

    https://www.freelancer.com/projects/proofreading/Proofreading-document-33344522/details

    I received the message asking me to contact @Rita_Publishing on telegram, so I did. Upon introduction, they asked me the country of my origin and name. Then, they asked me to do the test in less than 30 mins., It was a translation test (English to Spanish). Upon clearing the test, they asked me to complete a project worth $1000. However., they stated that the payments shall be made directly which seemed pretty weird. Anyhow., I accepted the project and started working on it. 5 hours into it and I thought of checking the reviews of the company. From there, I got to know that I was being scammed since The crystal Publishing House LLC stated that a fake company was using their name and sending out contracts on Telegram. Upon direct confrontation, they got angry and used impolite words, which is very unprofessional behavior.

  11. Oh yes! Agreed! Lucky I checked your post.. as I was really close to ending them the $350 USD as I really needed the money which they’d promised me for a 2 day job which would realistically take a normal person 5 days to complete it! So wow! What a waste of my time and effort.. ive been talking to a guy named George Martin on Telegram.. I already addressed them about being scammed but they are denying it to me.. so im just going along with it.. for the fun of it.. they wanna waste my time? I’ll waste their time back!

    1. They have been reported to the social media outlets they are using (Telegram, Upworks, Freelancer) and to the Federal Trade Commission Fraud Division in the U.S. However, they are not located in the U.S.
