So I was busy with college exams and hadn’t used fiverr for over a month until 2 days ago to link my new paypal account and today I get an email saying I got a warning that I had disclosed personal information. I did give my phone number to my client over 2 months ago because he wanted a live drawing and he wanted a sample through a video call. I told him I have never done a live sketch so I can’t do it. But he was very insistent and said he liked my art style. So i agreed to do a sample drawing. But the payment was coming through fiverr because I only activiated my paypal account yeasterday and I was going to do a direct bank transfer for gigs. I did the sample and the client was satisfied and said he’ll commission me through fiverr. But he never did and instead he started being a creepy pervert and I blocked his number. He started messaging me on fiverr again and blocked him agian. Two days later I get a warning for disclosing personal information.A few thing I wanna straighten out is that:
I was not aware that giving my phone number so that I can do vedio call for the gig, which was necessary for the gig, was wrong. And I accept that there was a mistake on my part. But I never intended to do this gig outside fiverr.
Since there is no option for a vedio call with the client on fiverr, what can I do instead?
If the warning was because if this particular customer then I find it unfair because he reported me because I refused to accept a gig from a pervert.
After I blocked him I made it clear on my profile that I won’t do live sketches, but since then another person is also sending me messages in fiverr asking me to draw him live while shirtless and in sexy poses even though I made it clear to him I will not do such gigs. And I have been bothered only by *********** ********. Please fiverr do something about this as they are misusing the report feature just because I’m not going along with their dirty needs.
