Are they Scammers?

This is a buyer’s request received me on January 1st, 2020.

******************.

He wanted to retouching and enhancement of 63 images, with one testing image. So he told me to take the images from the link and do it very cleverly. If he is satisfied with the editing, he will be recruited for a long-term partnership. This is our conversation.

******************.
******************.
******************.

So, I made the picture as fast as I could and gave it to him. He then thanked me for it and then stopped the conversation saying he would contact me. He hasn’t called me again.
How do you consider sending a request for such a request?

You were used to get a free service. You won’t hear from him again unless he wants another picture enhanced for free.

That is because he is now asking 62 other people to provide a test edit before he hires them. :wink:

You have to be very careful when dealing with people like these. Also never do any work for free as mentioned there are some pretty bad people on Fiverr. Take this as a small lesson and move on to greatness! :grinning:

Sometimes happens. Just take your loss and move on… the circle of these people will become smaller and smaller. As they need to watch their back, not you. If you put energy in talking about this, it’s a waste of time. Better focus on improving yourself and never lose faith in people. Just stay sharp!

Thank you very much for the helpful idea and the valuable advice you gave.

What I do is I apply a watermark on it

Fiverr also has a Watermark-function, which is automatically used. But never send in an example without a watermark.

Have you had a similar experience?

@joeritan
According to him, I had to edit that image to see if my ability was suitable for a long time partnership to work on his project. So I didn’t use any watermark.

I understand, but never underestimate your skills. Every cliënt has to respect you as a human and as a person for doing business. If the tone of voice is wrong, often the willingness to pay is wrong too. Just learn from this and get going, you’re worth it!!
