“This order mistake send”
“I want talk first then order”
“I mistake order, please cancel”
You might think that the kind of person sending the above four requests to cancel an order, is far from a competent English speaker. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the person who has now entered their 2nd week of cancelation tennis with me, actually sells articles on Fiverr.
To be a bit more specific, this person sells articles and cryptocurency content just like me. What is more here is what it looks like when one Fiverr seller with no brains at all attempts to sabotage a Fiverr seller with at least a wee bit grey matter.
- Seller with very similar gigs orders at 14:02
- Seller requests first cancellation prior to order starting in very broken English at 14:04
- Seller tries very hard for 7-days to pretend that they don’t speak even basic English and are confused why I will not accept to cancel their order
- After notifying the seller that since they sell similar gigs to me, they will have to ask CS to cancel to avoid any suggestion of sabotage, seller miraculasly learns how to communicate in English very fluently
Requirements: give me article about cryptocurrency
Now, my gig is very clearly for 500-words. In this case, this scammer will get 501 maximum, even though I often include extra words FOC. Of course, this will very likely result in a 1-star review. However, here’s the deal:
If I accept to cancel this order (for a gig which says READ GIG DESCRIPTION IN FULL PRIOR TO ORDERING. I DO NOT ISSUE REFUNDS), I will likely get demoted to level 0 in 10-days, while this person in the exact same niche, will carry on selling at level 2.
Now is that a flawed rating system or what?
