So having your image/gig description stolen is nothing new, and I hadn’t had that happen to me in a while, but during my break I randomly decided to do my little Fiverr patrol and bam, there it was.
A Japanese translation gig in the “latest arrival” section with a very familiar looking lucky cat image…oh right, I DREW THAT.
I clicked on it, and was slightly surprised to see that this seller also copy/pasted my ENTIRE gig description. Not a single sentence had been changed.
The dude is from Morocco, ( he clearly says so in his profile) but in the gig description says “I am Japanese” because well, that description was written by me. It says he will translate 500 words for $5 when the description gives a different rate.
OK I get it, this lazy bum-bum of a dude looked at my gig, thought hey, a TRS, cool, that means if I steal the gig image and description that’s gonna magically generate orders, and I’ll be sipping wine while I stick in all the orders into Google and call it a day.
Of course I reported him. Seriously though…shame on him.
