bad sellers on fiverr are becoming a plague, the worst part of that is when you feel that the website managers are keeping those phony designers and developers thinking that they would make some business with them while it is totally the opposite! the toxic sellers are turning people from the whole platform.
I came out with this when I had a terrible experience with a thief on the site, and nothing happened other than refunding me, not even my negative review was shown on his profile to alert others! after wasting my time and putting me in an embarrassing situation!
Here are the details of what happened if anyone is interested, my first order went for a so called web developer, the seller had a 13 positive reviews with 5 stars, which made me feel safe. he said my requirements are easy and he can do it.
my requirements were was perfectly exact to the pricing range he had on the listing, which was 15 dollars, but he asked for 100! and said that he doesn’t update his profile frequently.
after refusing he kept going down to reach 35 dollars, I accepted because I had an idea in my mind that he was just trying to do some hunting to check how high would I go or how rich I am (disgusting)!
here’s the terrible part of the story he kept delaying and saying I’ll finish soon and I need extra hour etc, then he sent me a funny piece of letters (I can’t call it even code) that he copied from the internet!
the guy refunded me but he put me in a terrible situation and lied to me until the last minute instead of just saying that he doesn’t know anything about the subject! I could’ve compressed my time and done the job on my own in those 3 daysز
