Anyway on the issue. My most successful gig on Fiverr is WordPress based and I receive many many orders each week and messages about potential orders. However I’m noticiing a pattern with the orders and requests coming in.
The scenario goes a little bit like this. “I had my site designed/updated/re-designed by ******** on Fiverr and they charged me (anything from $5 - $100) to do my site for me. Everything was good until WordPress prompted me to update my theme which I have been unable to do. Could you take a look for me.”
Low and behold on almost every single occasion it’s a Themeforest WordPress theme that the seller has gotten either by downloading it from one of those crappy nulled sites or they are using a theme that they own multiple times on multiple different domains. This is against the tos of Themeforest with out the extended license.
I don’t really know of a way that this could be prevented but I hope raising concerns about this again here might at least catch the eye of a buyer or two who will now know about this and be a bit more vigilant on what they accept.
If you are one of the culprits please stop, you are making the rest of us look bad. There are tons of choices for this you don’t have to rip off someones hard work.
