I would like to bring this to public through this platform. I’ve been using Fiverr for sometime now and I’ve noticed that 90% of sellers here are fake, they either fake their skills or don’t deliver as per the committed timeline. Fiverr should be responsible in verifying their sellers and their work that they showcase to fool people.
I had some money left in my Fiverr account as refund which I thought I’d use it against other sellers but the same story again, I had to keep cancelling multiple orders mainly because they were not able to complete the task on time or they had done worst job possible. Tired and fedup I demanded my money back to my original payment source from Fiverr’s “Awesome” customer support. After multiple exchange of emails with them, they finally agreed to move the amount to a temporary “seller” account through which I could withdraw it to Paypal as “revenue”. I disagreed because I cannot show the amount as revenue in my account books because that will be taxable to me and I will end up loosing more money!
In return, they disable my account saying “High number of cancellations”!!!
I want to ask this to Fiverr (if someone from the management is reading) - What about high number of fraudsters on Fiverr doing fake work??
I’ve hired people on oDesk, Elance, Upwork for almost a decade now. But Fiverr deserves to be called a cheater!
Just beware guys. Stop wasting your money here. Fiverr is not going to do anything for you. They are just sitting hatching eggs, and if you raise your concern they will simply block your account for any stupid reasons.
