I’ve been a buyer on this site since 2015, so believe. Just started selling about 2 months ago. Just a few orders away from having the required 50 sales for Level 2. Yay.
Anyways- I got a message early in the morning asking if I could record a video testimonial and deliver it in 12 hours.
'No problem," I say. “Just order the expedited delivery extra, and so will get it done ASAP!”
Buyer says he only has $5. (Red flag?) I’m feeling generous, and want to help him out. I tell him to go ahead and place the order, and I will take care of it soon.
Now, I should mention that my gig video has a video of me speaking for 60 seconds, as well as about a dozen deliveries in the portfolio.
Buyer finally places an order. At this time, I’m cooking lunch. I respond and let him know I will get tonit this afternoon. An hour later- he is messaging me asking about delivery (red flag #2)
To get him off my back, I record it (as per my gig description. Clear audio and video. Nailed the script). I send it to him aThthank him for his business.
2 hours later: he is requesting a cancellation because he doesn’t like my voice (???) I deny the request, as it’s obviously the same voice as what’s in my gig videos. I explain that everything is as what’s promised in the description, and that I even bent over backwards to accomadate his deadline.
Cancellation request #2: Now he just says “sorry. I bought another gig.” Uhm- good for you. I’m still not refunding your money, buddy.
I told him we’ll let CS deal with it.
His account is new, but I feel like he just wanted the free work. I guess I should expect either a cancellation, or my first negative review!
