So recently I commissioned a gig from a user by the name of “***********”. The work he came back with in 2 days was, in simple terms, fraud. He searched on google for something that looked similar, copied and pasted and then slapped some generic font over it. When I seen this, I quickly attempted to cancel the order, this is when I seen how Fiverr needs to improve.
Here is how easy it is for a scammer to profit on Fiverr.
Step 1: Create profile and upload fraudulent portfolio.
Step 2: Create a “click-bait” style advertisement.
Step 3: Accept a gig and produce the fraudulent work.
Step 4: Accept the money.
If by Step 4 the fraudulent work has become obvious then the buyer can cancel the order, but you as a scammer don’t want that right? You want that fraud money! So all you need to do is DECLINE their cancellation, they can submit a ticket to the resolution centre but the ticket doesn’t go to Fiverr…no no no, the ticket goes to you, the scammer. Nobody other than you and your victim will see it therefore no liability right? Seems hard to believe but it is. The website itself is a breeding ground for scams and bad intentions. The sheer amount of copyright infringement on here is insane.
