    How do I delete my Freelancer account?

    I have a freelancer.com account from over a year and it's proving unproductive for me. Being a kind of person who can just not bear a useless account, I want to know a way to get rid of it for good.

    To cancel your account, you only need to deactivate your active provider profile(s). Once you have deactivated all of your provider profiles, you will be removed from future billing.

    Once you do that, you should not get anymore job offers either.

    Interesting question. I too, am having the same problem. If you can find any alternative way of getting good jobs (web development in wordpress, joomla, html, php), then please share it with me.

    There's really no need to "close" your account and in fact I doubt they let you anyway.  I've simply abandoned my account and disabled email alerts as their service is IMO no longer useful (I've since switched to oDesk.com and am having much more success).

    I Do Have a similar Problem here:
    1.: Got emails from freelancer.com but did never register there.
    2.: Looks like someone used my Email to register at freelancer.com.
    3.: His first name "vw354416vw" does not tell anything to me.
    (I knew the "person" used my email as username)
    4.: I requested password-change and checked all Email-Notys OFF.
    5.: I logged in and there is NO delete Account-Option!! WTF?

    This is best you can do yourself. (In my case to avoid spam) You could contact freelancer.com directly and ask 'em for removal of your account, if you care their performance. 
    In my opinion this makes less sense, since they dont deserve it due to a missing Account-removal option.

    I had to go through a ridiculous amount of crap to delete my account. You have to search to find anything about it, then you have to go through another site and file a claim to close the account. They send you an email saying that your claim was filed and then they send you another one saying that you have to go back to the other site to confirm that you want to cancel the account (this took about two days) if you don't confirm the cancellation within a week, your claim is dropped and you continue to be charged for your account. It's a really confusing system. Much more helpful if you just get someone on chat right away to walk you through it.
