Beware of Fraud Buyer and Scammer

Recently i got my first order and completed it within 3 hours and delivered. The buyer asked for a revision and i also did it. I submitted it again with the requirements provided by the Buyer. As soon as i delivered the project. The buyer cancelled the order. He wasted my hardwork and my money.

Sorry to hear that. May I just ask, how is it possible that buyer can cancel the order that fast? Did the buyer request a cancellation from you and you accept it?

As soon as i delivered the file. He filed a dispute and then i accepted it because i was new to this situation and i wasn’t expecting this.

I am so sorry this happened to you. Don’t let this bring you down. Keep working hard and good clients will come to you.

Thank you :slight_smile: wish you best of luck!

You need to say that.

Your original post made it seem like the buyer was able to cancel the order on his own, which we now see is very misleading:

But only when @yvannna asked did you reveal that you played a part in making the cancellation:

It isn’t fraud or a scam if you accept it. The buyer is unscrupulous certainly, but you accepted the resolution. That’s what happens when you do that and that’s what it’s there for.

You weren’t transparent about how it happened, presumably because it makes you look better to act like the buyer did it all on his own.

@humanissocial Got the attention? Now move on.

My grievance is valid. I don’t want attention. That’s absurd.

You obviously don’t care that you misled us and you’re bitter because I noticed and shared that you did that.

Quite telling that you haven’t acknowledged you misled us and that it was wrong and chose to.get defensive instead. Now you look even sketchier. Good work.

Then fiverr can’t do anything in this case. It’s a mutual cancellation that you agreed for and fiverr can not intervine in it.

Some of these are kidding us. Don’t worry, Dream big work hard, some power will be always with us.

Can some show me a screenshot of how mutual cancellation looks like

When the buyer pay through 3rd party payment processors like PayPal they can open a dispute through that platform. In that case Fiverr issues an immediate refund to the buyer without any inquiry. You can report these scamming incidents to Fiverr and suspend the buyer account. But the truth is these kind of scammers comes from fake accounts and they do not care about their account because they can make new accounts as much as they want. So basically you can’t do nothing in this case.

BTW in this case non of above applies because this person has mutually canceled the order.
