If oDesk isn't sending a form 1099, how can we know what's being reported to the IRS?

Here's the issue - I keep good records, so I'm ready to file my taxes. But I wait for the 1099s and W-2s to be certain that the right amounts are being reported to the IRS. Last year, I got a Form 1099 that was way off - I had to contact the company that sent it to me and get it straightened out. Without having seen that form, I wouldn't have known that the company vastly over-reported my income, and I would have got all tied up in red tape and other bad stuff.
So how do we know what oDesk is reporting to the IRS?
