“Help! Please! My buyer is threatening me with bad review. I did everything perfectly, what should I do?”
Oye! Every single day!! Every day someone asks this. What should you do? If I were a seller, this is what I would do:
Scammer: Cancel or else!
Scammer: I will give you 1 star review!
Scammer: What do you mean by NO!? This is my final warning, accept cancellation or bad review.
Buyer gives blind review.
I give buyer review: "** WARNING **, all sellers!! This buyer just scammed me out of $XX order. After delivery, (s)he treatenened me with a bad review unless I cancel and give him free work. Unless, you like working for free, stay away.
I’d write the same thing under his/her review of me.
// ** NO REAL BUYER cares if you have a 1 star review, as long as you stay professional in your response. If anything, it’ll stop other scammers from going to you when they see it.
I would report them immediately after reading the review, that way if the scammer reports me with lies, they can see my side of the story.
Scammer goes directly to CS and has order cancelled.
Contact CS, explain situation and tell them, you are
requesting an official “take down” if they are using it. Since they didn’t pay, you have the rights to it and will be using/selling your work.
Also tell CS, you will send 1 professionally written message to him/her, via inbox, to the fact just in case they plan on using it.
Don’t get scammed. Sellers hold all the cards. Scammers only have the power if you hand over those cards. Stop being so weak. No one makes TRS without dealing with a few scammers and losers.
Sorry to be harsh, but if you keep acting helpless, then you are getting exactly what you deserve. So,
Edit: Power of saying “NO!”
