Trust and the country of origin

Trust and the country of origin

I personally have chosen gigs that originate from my home country, I also buy gigs from outside the country.

However, Many times I read gigs that state the provider is in “the USA” when clearly from the writing on the ad, the seller is foreign ( there is a big difference in writing style from a foreign American and someone in another country)

does Fiverr not check the sellers out? IPs? etc?

I do business with those I trust, regardless of the country, as long as I believe you are in the country you say you are!
