I’ve created a gig about a month ago, where I would write articles & blog posts for other people. And it was doing really well, I was getting quite a few orders and even one very big order! But when I checked my messages yesterday I saw that Fiverr canceled one of my completed orders and removed my gig entirely from the site!
They said I’ve been stealing content from somewhere else: “Copyright Infringement - Your Gig has been flagged by our team due to a third party copyright violation. Please ensure that you sell services you either own or have a valid copyright license to use. As a valued member of the Fiverr community, we ask you to respect the broader Internet community and refrain from such violations in your Gig offerings as this is misleading to our buyers”
All articles from this gig have been written by me and no one else. So, when I contacted the customer service all they had to say was about the same as the text above. I asked them where I apparently stole my content from and they didn’t give me an answer to that, they just said that “our Trust and Safety team [has] determined that some of the work being delivered on this Gig in orders have been copied from other sources.”
As you can see, this isn’t helping me solve the problem and it’s very frustrating for me, because I’m being accused of something I didn’t do, and it took me so many hours to write all of these articles and so many days to receive a bunch of 5 Star reviews - and now all of that is gone. I just want to know where this is coming from, so if you guys can help me in any way or just share your similar story that would be great.
