Fiverr just denied one of my active gigs. (I shoot video testimonials.) From the email:
I think a buyer complained.
A couple days ago, I requested a cancellation from a buyer whom I can only describe as a MESS. He spoke little to no English, he was not clear in his instructions, he wanted to promote both an internet marketing product and some sort of fish product in the same video. Oh, and he wanted me to shoot the video “in bright palace”…
What astounds me is that virtually anyone can simply SAY that a seller is infringing on their intellectual property, or misleading them… and Fiverr will shut down that gig without any investigation whatsoever.
So I could file a complaint against the seller above me on a whim, and sabotage their best selling gig. Just because. (Of course, I won’t.)
Is THIS the way Fiverr runs their business? Sellers are ULTRA expendable because where one falls, there are 5 to take his place?
