Without getting too off topic; the seller high-balled me with a $20 custom offer, which I accepted as I’m relatively new and was unaware how difficult nullifying a deal is.
I submitted a request for cancellation literally hours later, before anyone was even awake. The red flags were just too apparent:
-Received what appeared to be automated messages without the user being online.
-They were listed as fluent in English, yet had many grammatical errors.
-Their username is *********** but had a female profile picture.
-They aren’t answering my questions directly, the answers sound like bot responses.
-Literally zero conversation about my logo order.
However, my order’s cancellation request was rejected. I then asked customer service for help, optimistic of a forced cancellation, yet was again denied(with what seemed to be an automated Fiverr response).
And now the latest bombshell. This is their project’s main logo example they used as a reference. ****************************
Out of natural skepticism, I back traced that image and came across this: [unapproved url]
In other words, this ************ user just took the logo image from a Turkish television show and replaced it with “Entertainment Technologies”.
The site was from a foreign country/language, making it highly likely “Timothy” lied about being American on their main profile information.
They fraudulently used a logo from someone else as their own reference, wholly unable to perform the job they were tasked with doing.
Was I naive? Yes. I was also new, and this is not the precedent Fiverr should set for new members. Cause in the end, if I end up losing $26, I’m less likely to come back.
Order ticket number: #FO8724515163
And being the selfish little human I am, I implore moderators reading this to remedy the situation; ban them, or forcibly cancel the order for me.
