How can we prevent a hurricane :cyclone:, another Y2K, earthquake, or :zombie: apocalypse? We can’t! :poop: happens! Taking precautions is all you can do. When the :poop: hits the fan, then deal with it.

It seems that you are new, so my advice is try not to worry about abolishing injustice and promote your gigs to get as much business as possible. Will someone screw you over here?, yes. But it is easier to take when it is one out of 1,000. Like @nikavoice said stuff happens.

New sellers sometimes have requests for free samples. Don’t do it.

What @misscrystal said. Don’t do free sample s!@t and at all times: if you feel in your guts that there is something wrong, don’t do business with them.

Yes, the “free sample” will be their job, they will bolt and you will lose. Like we say all the time "Never work for free"
Directed to OP, not MC

:poop: typical fraudulent buyer: “hey I want to know if you can send me a FREE sample”

if your response is: :face_with_raised_eyebrow: “I can´t do that, this service is not like tasting a piece of cheese for free and then buying it! :cheese:” buyer: :poop: “oh okay”

but IF your response is: :crazy_face: "oh yes!!"
buyer: :smiling_imp: “thanks for your free sample, see you in the future”

or :innocent: “thanks, send me offer please”

then, at the end: :poop:the buyer left you 1 star review

:scream:

How horrible for you! I hope you reported them!

This is a 2 year old thread. LOL

Also, just a heads up, you are not allowed to “name and shame” buyers or sellers here. Even if they are worthy of such.

Of course. There are going to be scammer buyers as well as sellers here. But, they get their comeuppance at some point and their accounts banned.

The point is, you are not allowed to “name and shame” a buyer or seller here. If you have a problem with either, take it up with Fiverr customer service directly.

The forum rule is we are not allowed to name either buyers or sellers. Otherwise this would become just a list of people others have grudges against for whatever reason and they didn’t want that.
