Some buyers are just so self-destructive.
I have a buyer at present looking for a specific niche of articles. They ordered one test article and apparently liked it. - But they had to edit it. In this case, they have placed a second order and sent the original article back with revisions, to show me ideally what they are looking for.
And it’s horrendous.
There are NO edits/revisions to any of my original wording or the information presented. Instead, what the buyer has done (or possibly another Fiverr seller has done for them), is cut and paste chunks of existing articles from online and included these in various areas.
This is not to show me what they are looking for. (i.e. Just for demonstration purposes.) This is the now the finished article which they will be publishing on their site. - And I’m not comfortable with this.
It is clear that that the buyer does not have a full grasp on what they want. In this case, what I think they are doing, is ordering, then ordering from a so-called ‘editor’ on Fiverr to check things. Then this editor is simply Googling topics discussed and replacing my original wording with something similar from online.
The end result of this, of course, is an article which can be immediately flagged as plagiarized if anyone checks. And who will likely be held liable for writing a plagiarized article? - Me, most likely.
I’m not sure how I am going to proceed with this. My gut tells me I should cancel the next order and politely ask that this buyer not place anymore. - I just can’t afford more cancellations at the moment.
