I have purchased a number of gigs from Fiverr and recently purchased an expensive web gig due in part to the perfect 5 star reviews for the developer. Turns out she was both indifferent to the job an incapable of doing the work. A 4 day gig turned into weeks and I eventually gave up and had to hire someone else. I left a fairly accurate review of the designer but it has yet to post.
I’ve written Fiverr multiple times and receive no reply. I have to assume that Fiverr simply won’t post less than perfect reviews for established sellers which, again I have to assume, means they’re ok with customers being taken advantage of. There’s no outside moderator, noone but Fiverr ultimately has control the reviews.
Has anyone else taken on a lousy gig, reviewed it and never seen that review afterward? It’s not fair to the buyer and it puts us all in a difficult position of not trusting the site.
