This is a general sharing of a topic probably not well suited to fiverr, although for some sellers it might be good to know. I will leave it to the moderators if they want to delete this topic. It is actually better suited to those in the customer support team, to be aware of this.
Have you ever noticed someone you know who is always putting little things into their chat about how something in their life is making them unhappy? Or they need your help, not just once but all the time with something?
Some people always are seeking help from others with things they can’t do for themselves or won’t do for themselves. Or they always have someone who is doing something they don’t like, something where they feel like a victim of someone else’s abuse or negativity in some way.
You may find you are always giving a friend a ride somewhere or loaning them money or helping them in various ways. Or you just might realize there is an element of pity in how you think of someone. Did they deliberately plant this pity feeling in you? Ask yourself this.
These people go through life and every relationship, every interaction, by playing on other’s sympathy, often in very subtle ways. They can even manipulate sellers sometimes in this way.
When these people talk there will be a statement that means they are a good person, followed by a statement calculated to make you feel sorry for them, with a strategic transition from positive to negative, that is subtle and calculated.
Some of us are more open to getting this kind of manipulation than others so if you are someone who is of a very sympathetic nature, it’s something to be aware of. This can be extremely subtle.
That’s why one of my red flags with new potential buyers is when they start by telling me how much they have been scammed. Any time you meet a new person who starts off by telling you how they have been victimized or treated badly by someone should put you on alert.
Watch out with potential love interests also who quickly talk badly about previous relationships
