Have you ever had a buyer ask for samples only to find out they steal your work and claim it as their own? I may stop providing writing samples for anyone who asks! But that’s a shame because if I was a buyer, I’d love to see a few samples before hitting that “buy” button.
I’ve also noticed a large volume of sellers in the writing category copying my seller bio, gig description, gig FAQs word for word. When I contact them about it, some of them change the wording and apologize, while others never respond. But with how often this happens, is it really worth pestering the fiverr team about it every single time? And trust me, I have contacted them several times and nothing seems to be done about it. Months later, the copied text from my gig is still there.
The thing is, if potential clients come across this, they may very well think I’m simply copying somebody else too. Luckily, I have enough reviews that should speak for themselves. But what if I didn’t?
Maybe I should stop caring. Easier said than done, right?
