Somebody ordered content. I delivered it. Took 15 hours.
He then said
“oops. I forgot to tell you this”
It meant the whole content had to be changed. Fiverr said “refund or listen to what he says”. This was a VITAL piece of information.
So, I am not one to not want to get paid, so I started to rewrite. I told the customer what was going on. It was his fault for not submitting all of the information. Out of the kindness of my heart, I thought I would rewrite it. I mean, I had nothing else to do.
So, now we are up to 30 hours work.
Today, the customer cancelled for late delivery. He has most of the content (all of the first batch of content), and some of the second batch.
“we can’t remove the feedback because you were late”
No. Fiverr. Screw you. The customer had the content delivered on time. You told me to rewrite it for him or refund (because it is my fault the customer didn’t give me all of the information at the start).
He had sent a message to customer support at some point saying I was taking too long and they cancelled it (from what I can tell)
They didn’t even bother to look into past tickets about the content. They didn’t bother to read the messages back and forth between me and the client where he is clearly messing me around.
I have lost 30 hours of my life to this goon.
Basically; Fiverr allows scammers.
Yes. I even submitted proof the client is using my content on his website (unpaid for) Will Fiverr do anything? Hell no. Why? Because he is a ‘top buyer’ or a ‘top rated seller’ on this website.
