I wonder if any sellers noticed this? I saw a request that was similar to one that I had to respond to in the past (the request was 100% identical)… I got curious and looked into the “sent offers” tab, found the person ID, and did a lookup.
It says that the “user account you are looking for is no longer available.” and I thought… how is this? I did a check on all 9 offers I had sent today and found that 3 of the user account was no longer available.
Some made sense, I had personally reported a few of the inbox message I got… asking to communicate outside the platform. I assumed someone did the same and reported on them… they got removed.
I treasure each “offer” opportunity and all my 215 offers made so far are all individually written… one was so detailed that the buyer wrote back to me in a 2000 word letter (didn’t convert yet, unfortunately)… e.g.
“Thank you ever so much for the length and detail of your recommendations, it is very much appreciated. It certainly appears that I have some work to do on my Website… (some contents removed)… Before proceeding with your Services I will take some time to invest further so that your endeavours have more of a platform. Thank you again, I am very grateful for your effort in this regard!”
I think Fiverr should do a better job screening those requests… and consider giving back those “request” opportunity to sincere sellers (especially those account that were removed within 2-3 hours of posting their request). Some of us take those 10 “chances” seriously.
