    Hola:

    While I do have some success stories here & there with their services, has anyone else noticed an upswing in Fiverr and Tenrr sellers who do not deliver what they've promised/guaranteed? And then their account suddenly goes inactive when you try to get a response?

    Makes you wonder if some sellers create phony accounts and pull down high volumes $5 or $10 orders (with a 7 - 60 day projected delivery), rake it in, and then vamoose? Of course, the amounts are so small, it's not like anyone probably invests much time trying to track anyone down right?

    Also: I'm curious if anyone has any basic recommendations on how to spot & avoid Fiverr & Tenrr sellers who likely won't deliver.

    thank you

    Yes, you can report it to the fiver's customer service, explain your problem and give the seller username..Your money should be given back =)

    Don't worry Fiverr has good team support. For Tenrr, i don't have any experienced with that

    I've never ordered a gig that took over a week to complete but yeah, Fiverr will refund you if your purchase isn't complete/delivered.

    Also....as soon as these guys "claim" it is delivered you need to reject the order

    Remember the old saying, you get what you pay for. On Fiver, you really must take the needed time to do research on those persons who provide the services.
