Does anybody else get the feeling there are a high number of tolls posing as sellers?
It seems like lately, I’ve been getting lots of messages from sellers who insist on having these long drawn-out conversations in broken English, (I think they are using google translate) who like to say things like “I have a very large project” “I need this right away and will pay whatever i takes” and other triggers to get your attention, then they keep using bait-and-switch tactics in the conversation. Like, on Monday they have a 400 word project that they need in 12 hours, which they never order, then on Tuesday they have a whole other 600 word project, which they never order. Eventually I just end up spam blocking them because they waste so much time.
About the only thing they end up doing is having an endless back-and-forth conversation without actually ordering. What’s their game? The only thing I can figure is that they are either waiting for me to “slip-up” somehow in my replies, or they are just trolls, plain and simple, and get their jollies off this somehow.
It’s to the point now where I’ve had enough I can pick out the pattern, almost like they are working off a script.
Anybody know what all this is about?
