I am beyond furious. Someone messaged a few days ago asking for a sales copy for a reseller website template. i.e Buy the template, then make megabucks pretending you are a digital marketing agency when really you outsource everything.
I sent an offer, delivered… And the buyer hates my work.
Not to blow my own trumpet here, but the vast majority of people love my work. Those that don’t are people who either don’t understand it or are other Fiverr sellers. This buyer happens to be both.
Just as their order is about to be marked as complete, they open a dispute asking to cancel. I declined, stating I do not cancel orders but would revise their work. I also pointed out that a new example article they want me to copy the style of sounds like a template for a multi-level marketing scam, but if that is what they want, I’ll write in that style.
Long story short, the buyer is now threatening to report me to Fiverr because of the services I offer unless I cancel. I’ve declined that invitation. I’ve also pointed out that I offer nothing against Fiverr TOS and actually, blackmail kind of is against TOS.
This whole situation annoys the hell out of me. Why? It’s not just being blackmailed. The vast , majority of all my unstarted orders and canceled because they never stated orders are from fellow Fiverr sellers. I’m not saying the present case is sabotage. However, I am saying that petty much unless you work with a fellow seller form the forum, fellow Fiverr sellers are pretty much the worst people you can ever hope to work with.
