Negative Review With Intentions To Defame

Update : The issue has been resolved by the CS.

Hello everyone,

I recently came across a buyer who placed a dummy order with me from his 2nd account just to post a negative review in order to defame me and with intentions of revenge.

Here is the story :
He previously placed an order from his 1st account which I cancelled because of his threatening behavior. When I requested mutual cancellation, he refused it and said things like “You don’t have any right to cancel my order to save your reviews.”
Then I got the order cancelled through CS and his money was refunded.
But he got so mad that he placed a fake order from his 2nd account by purchasing my cheapest package and submitted very low quality files. I got back to him asking to resend better files for best results.
He said “That’s all I have. Please use it. I take full responsibility for everything.”
I told him that if I work on this file the results may not be what you expect.
Then I started the work and delivered it on time.
He accepted it immediately and left a negative 1 star review.
He didn’t even use 2 free revisions that were included in the order.
I became suspicious and found out that this was the same buyer whose order I cancelled previously.
He did all this just to harm my rating and take revenge because I cancelled his order.
These kind of people also exist on fiverr.


I can’t see any negative reviews on your profile, so possibly it has already been removed?


I just received an email from CS. They removed it after varifying.


I’m glad CS helped you!

How did you find out this was the same buyer ordering from a second account?


Great job done by CS team. Appreciated.


I think we should all expect a forum rant from that buyer’s 3rd account about “fake 5* sellers”. :slight_smile:

It’s great that CS took your side in this matter, OP.


His local time was exactly the same on both accounts and he copy pasted the same description on both profiles.


Wow that is terrifying. Hopefully when I start getting orders, I will be able to spot these clients. Imagine getting a 1 star and slapping your rating down. Good deductions you’ve made dustingbeatz1! You are like a legit detective.

wow what a horrible person, glad you solved the issue. I would also block both accounts as well, so he wont be able to even contact you again.
