There’s a buyer that’s stressing me out.
On the first occasion we work together, this person described my work as “horrible” in the chat. I asked them to elaborate, but they didn’t do so. Somehow, they still provided a 5* review - so I don’t know whether they were just yanking my chain before or trying to be nice after the fact. In any case, I found it unsettling.
A day or so later after the first order is complete, this buyer approaches me with another job offer (which of course took me by surprise). I was trying to think up a good excuse to decline but upon looking at the job in more detail I realised I had a perfectly good reason to decline - it was both unethical and in clear breach of Fiverr’s ToS. I said as much to the buyer and that seemed to be that.
But is there a more permanent way to prevent a buyer from contacting me? I don’t want to make trouble for this buyer, but I also really don’t know how much more of this jerking around I can take. Oh and another thing - this person offers a very similar gig to my own, and seems clearly to be outsourcing work to up and coming sellers like me.
