Verifying sellers local time?


#1

How does fiverr verify a sellers local time? Would it be affected if the seller were using a vpn service? I’ve seen several sellers claiming to be in countries that their local time doesn’t reflect… A seller claims to be in the US, but their local time is listed as 10 am…I am browsing fiverr in California at 1 am…There is no way they are anywhere in the United States or Canada for that matter, if 10 am is indeed their local time… Why are the discrepancies not addressed?

Yes they probably are in a country that is not the U.S.

What can fiverr do about it? They started to have phone verification recently to prevent this but it might not catch all of them.
