Fake buyers.What is the solution?

In the last week, a buyer messages me that he need a logo and he sent me a font image.
I saw that and realize that I can do this easily.
Then he ordered me and when I submit the first draft then he said this was not his font what he provided.
Then I show him a screenshot that this is the exact font.
But he did not accept. Then he sent me another image what he like and I show him samples according to his samples.
After that he sent another image and then want refund.
I show him 15+ samples and that take 5+ hours.
Finally, he cancel the order.
I think he was a fake buyer and I have a question?
How a seller save him from a fake buyer?

I have no idea, but
I only set 1 concept logo and if the buyer want more concepts, he/she can purchase from the extra gig.
and I only use basic font.

The correct term would be Unpleasant Buyers.
5r cannot force a Buyer to accept an order. Never ignore the :triangular_flag_on_post: red flags.

Say what?! :astonished:

Remember time is a terrible thing to waste.
Time = :moneybag: lost.

A lot of times we spent much times to complete the task but the buyers often not genuine and they refused our work and then decline.

That’s really a help full comment, thank you.
