I had a client who messaged me and because of a bad vibe, I said I couldn’t help. Plus, they are from one of those BAD BUYER parts of the world.
Anyway, on October 23rd, they decided to place an order regardless. I delivered this (over delivered actually) in full and on time. Immediately, however, the buyer asked me why I hadn’t done the work.
This was 1 x 30 second video, 1 x article, 1 x getty image, and 2 x free stock images.
Confused, especially since I could see the video in the Fiverr preview viewer, as well as all the other files I had sent, I delivered all again. Then the buyer said that they couldn’t open any of the files.
The video was in ,mp4 format, article in MS Word format, and images in .png.
At this point, I sensed a scam. In this case, I directed the buyer to customer support. Then they were gone until a week later when they messaged me with their private email, asking for me to send the files again. I said no, quoted TOS implications and reported the message. Now today, the buyer has returned asking me to redeliver their work via a normal Fiverr inbox message attachment.
I’m just perplexed by this. I have said no. They can still download all their files from their original order page and all files on that page were delivered twice and checked by me for corruption the second time.
For some reason, this buyer who cornered me into doing their work, simply does not want to open their delivery. In this case, I am suspecting that this is because if they don’t download anything on their side, they think they might be able to file a charge back?
