Hi i am a proud Fiverr for over 6 years, and this is the first time i had this horrible experience.
I had an idea for a pop art painting which i want for my apartment, so found someone who could make it, so paid 50 euro’s for it,
now after 7 days the seller said he had a previous gig which had a lot of revisions, so he did not start yet,but was starting right now, after a few days he said he could get the result he wanted, so i asked for something else and showed some examples, so about 2 weeks total it was finished, result looked great, exactly how i described it, so i completed the order.
so i talked with him about some future work, he gave me his instagram, where he said he sold work.
now i see he had my work uploaded on his instagram, i asked him, if he could remove it from instagram, i even said no offense further, i expected from him to say; ow sorry i will remove it right away.
but he didn’t, he said he used it to grow his account, i said i get it, but i paid for it and it was my idea.
then all of a sudden he blocked me on fiverr, and put the following thing on instagram:
Something funny happened today. The previous post (now deleted) was made for a client. After posting it, he asked me to take it down. We went back and forth and in the end he pretty much came down to “I paid for it. It’s mine. I want it taken down.” Fine. So I made a new version of it and I’ll be selling prints of that at an insanely cheap price. I’ll basically just be covering printing and shipping costs just to make it accessible to as many people as possible. I call this piece… “Spite” (48in x 48in) Smaller sizes will be available.
it’s not a different version, he just put some small changes on it, but overall everything was my idea,
does anyone know how to open a claim after a finished work? and warn others?
maybe it’s just me, but for me it looks very odd to treat clients like that.
