I had an interesting experience yesterday. The order initially came out of the blue without the buyer discussing requirements with me in chat.
However, he gave detailed instructions and provided an example of how the final product description should look. Not too difficult.
I did his product description precisely as per his requirements with all the necessary headings, bullet points, etc.
Delivered the order and got a ‘request to cancel’ back within half an hour. His comment?
“I received bulletin points of random questions being answered. No title, no product description, no bulletin points that are of quality. Worst service…”
Is this weird or what? So, politely, I wrote back, HIGHLIGHTED MY TITLES, bullet points, product description, and refused the cancellation. I offered him all the revisions he would possibly want.
Half an hour later - Order marked as complete. ‘Luckily’ with no further review.
What do you think? A scammer trolling for free work, but still getting his act together? Maybe I was terrific in my arguments back - and he saw that it wouldn’t be worth his while stringing things along?
I am so mad! I’ve been around the block a few times, so I don’t fall for this, but a new seller could easily have been intimidated just to accept his cancel request in fear of review.
Watch out, people! There are ruthless, evil people out there …
