I purchased a service that was never completed. The $25 charge was refunded (May 11, 15) and applied as a fiverr credit. What they (fiverr) don’t tell you is you cannot use the funds for other jobs unless they are $25. So fiverr has been holding my money for well over a year.
So a year+ later I came back. I had forgotten about how fiverr was keeping my $25 and how I felt scammed. I went to purchase a $65 logo design and found out that I cannot apply my credit. Then the memory of how I was scammed before came back.
Here is my response to the potential developer.
“Thank you for being patient. I am learning that I cannot use a fiverr credit of $25 for this purchase. I am upset with fiverr and refuse to make another purchase using their platform. I feel that fiverr has scammed me.
I’m truly sorry and hope I did not waste too much of your time.”
I work customer service, I had also forgotten why I tell people to not use fiverr. I just politely say “I have not had good experiences with them”. Now that I remember I can be specific with the 50+ people I talk to per day.
As I read through these forums the sellers seem to feel they are not getting a fair deal but here is an example where the buyers are being taken for their money by fiverr.
