Is it just me or is there more "scam" jobs on odesk?

I have found some really great jobs and some really bad ones here. I keep applying to jobs that seem to want me to give out free advice and work as a trial before I get hired. One wanted me to work 2 weeks for free than he would hire me and start paying me after that. I keep reporting those but still I keep finding more and more of them.
Why is it that I can either bust my butt for $1 an hour or apply to good paying jobs and work for free before I can even get considered for the job often to lose it because I have done all the work they required for free anyways...O.o
I am really starting to question if oDesk isn't just a scam. I have to work from home do to health and while when I first started I was willing to work for pennies to build up my stats...this is for the birds.
Sorry for the rant but I am tired of non stop applying and never getting hired or paid for the work I do.
