I am as new to scamming myself as I am to Fiverr. The tale you are about to view should be read with your safety in mind.<br />
It was a dark and stormy day. Never mind that, it's always sunny in Fiverrville, so who cares.
I went running to my in box with the glee of a newly promoted level one seller. Upon reading that there was a gig for my content writing; I nearly peed my pants. Screams of, “Squeeeee!” could be heard throughout the cubicle of my life. I read the gig instructions from the Buyer “ I need a review for my website. It was hacked and I lost all my information and reviews...”
I then braved my way through the internet portal link to a strange land of newness. Being an ethical (s)word wielding Ninja, I returned to the Village of Fiverrville. I instructed the man from Buyersville that I had never used his advertisement posting service for a land called “The List of Craig.” I then mentioned to him that he should consider running my “Word Ninja*” ad on his site.(he is NOT a Fiverr seller just a buyer) I then returned to the land of newness and realized that the agreement we made for my one time advertisement was not an option. I then gave forth instructions as to the agreement that we had made. That is to say, I gave forth the information I WANTED to give and NOT exactly what was asked for. Deception? No. I did not want to agree to a full monthly service which was was presented.. I figured that were he the sole proprietor of his quaint shop in the villa, he would understand.
Well, this is how the story went. The information I gave included: my fiverr name “Lissa”, and the gig info for my fiverr ad. He thanked me kindly and went about his way. I then wrote a review of the interaction that we had and the ease of use of his system and submitted it. An honest review. I hadn't heard back on the ad. Nor did I pay him money. I went online (like closing the gate to the horse barn) after having waited and I found that someone that use to own the domain name was previously selling this service under that name. They had not provided the services. They did however, charge customers around $80 USD per month. (at least some had reported this)
My word of caution is this : don't use a service without checking them out first. I learned a lesson and as I just saw that my gig was completed, I am out nothing at the moment. Please BE CAREFUL.
To be clear No exchange of money or information was made outside Fiverr. That is a breach of ToS.
My gig is not called Word Ninja.
I can neither confirm or deny any affiliation there of. :D
