Today I sent an offer to a buyer request who said he wants to build a footwear brand and wanted to Photoshop some images for web stores. He contacted me saying, he wanted to test me if I am skilled enough for his project and included some instructions and images.
“This is a testing for me to see your work. If like your work then you wil be working permanently for my brand”
But, I already have gig that shows my skills.
So, I made an offer for him for just $5 and sent this message.
"Hi, please understand that I do not give free samples. These days buyers tries to trick seller into doing free works and they never gets paid.
I propose you try out one simple Gig to find out if my service fits to your needs! Thats the real nice thing in Fiverr - trying out a service for just 5$
I hope you understand. Thank you for your kind cooperation.
And to my surprise, I got this respond. “Good bye. Do not contact me again please”
I had read on this form that people are tricking new sellers into doing work for free. That’s why I couldn’t trust him. Am I doing something wrong here as a new seller? I know I am supposed to keep all my buyers happy but I also feel like there are few scammer out there.
Thank you for your time.
