I just had a buyer request a service that is not that close to what I offer other than writing - He wants a 5* review on Amazon. I pretty much told him to take a flying leap off a short pier (not that I said, of course). Here’s what he wrote, and he is making his rounds on Fiverr, finding someone who will do this.
Hi there, I’m an Amazon US seller, looking for people whom buy and leave a 5star review to my product.
If you are keen to do that, I will refund you all the money including feverr fees, so you’ll be basically get to keep and enjoy the product for you free of charge.
It’s a superior quality yoga leggings and top. You can choose any over 2 colors and 3 sizes.
Let me know if that could work for you.
I told him it was against Fiverr’s TOS as well as Amazon’s service to do something like, and my accounts could be banned. Then he had nerve to follow up with:
How would they know if you go and buy a product from amazon… we never shared the same IP and we dont know each other. You would sell me a service on fever which i would pay for, so i don’t see what could possibly go wrong on fever too. Anyway, up to you, let me know if you change your mind.
Have a great day.
Number 1 - They can always find out.
Number 2 - If you’re a U.S. Amazon seller, why does your profile list outside the U.S.?
Number 3 - It’s totally unethical.
UGH! I did report the message and hope Fiverr ends up banning him before he gets some sucker Fiverr seller to do this. Ridiculous!
