    I know many of you can be fulled by scammer actually driving his business model on fiverr tracked usernames:

    japanese_face
    coca_facebook
    facebook_usa_uk
    depolation
    facebookfan_usa
    youtubes_job
    korir5403
    iphone5_like
    travel_face
    facebook_fans55
    happy_birthday
    you_tube_deals
    marina_youtube
    youtube_tip
    facebook_alone
    social_angela
    google_seo_god
    socialrangers
    djdera
    ombproductions
    gwaterg
    fblikes_likes

    his scenario is simple, he put unbelievable amount of fb likes, youtube views, g+, backlinks, traffic to your website with 10-20 days to deliver and when you order from him after 1-2 days he change your order as a delivered and send you information "Hi, Don't worry .I am still working for you. I am delay in a few hours , I will complete quickly. Thanks" of course he never deliver what he promise. when he got 100% positive feedback (because marked you as a delivered) he change his gigs for express delivery 24hours also posting form fake usernames feedback about "great gigs will buy from you again" even when there is no (COLLECTED THIS GIG) or if is he try to decrease % of negative feedback by multiply giving himself a positive feedback. So some of them still exist you can see his gigs. I post it because fiverr staff only cancel my orders but not to do anything to stop robbering others.. just beware ppl.

    thanks for the info. your best action would be to send a copy of this complaint to fiverr also and have them ban him by IP address so it doesn't happen to others.

    As a seller, I am worry about this also.
    Fiverr is more saturated than ever thesedays and I am afraid people will think all the sellers are the same.

    Actually, something that looks too good to be true are mostly scam. For a 5er, why would you believe if some seller offer you the world?

    Thank you to speak it out, scammers are all need to go to jail/hell.

    Thanks for the info. I already thought that it's all just a scam when I saw it. But the problem is that he or they (don't know how many of them are doing the same thing) are opening new profiles nearly every day then they go ahead, log themselves in with their old profiles and use them to give themselves positive feedbacks on the new gigs which is causing the people to trust them more and order their scam gigs... :(

    Well there are definitely great sellers on fiverr with fantastic services. Sellers, who do a lot for their costumers and deliver professional and honest work. Generally, Fiverr is really a great place to buy things.

    I personally always look at the feedbacks. If they have 50 feedbacks or more, I know I can count on them and they won't scam you. If there's just 1 feedback or less, I always wait or go to someone else...it's the safest method I think to not get scammed that fast.

    That's why it's important to read the feedback of the user and what they are selling prior to buying anything.

    I was also in a similar situation: "We will finish your order in next 3hrs."
    They think they can cheat anyone, lol

    another new user from this guy: facebook_uss, facebook_fan_10, camiloface, socialworldds1, loulou_ladyblue

    Hi start every day from new usernames.. what I see he try to make ppl tired of complaining.. but I will not give up.. and I am not angry on him because he simple use the bug from fiverr where support instead to ban paypal they allow them to scamming because he is probably doing a good gigs as well and he know very well how the things work, from his methods anyway you ppl can learn a lot. Now I see what fiverr need - forum or board where ppl can speak about good and bad things on fiverr.. also what I found now, there is no way to write about user or gigs than only when gig will be delivered. I am curious how he give himself positive feedback and why fiverr allow it without buying gig.. can somebody explain me that?

    He scammed me too!

    That's crazy - I was able to cancel all the gigs and get refunded though.
    He almost pulled it off. It's crazy how shady stuff like that can go down
    even on an established site like fiverr. Just gotta be careful

    it's a shame fiverr can't end this scammers dealings. There must be a way for them to change the system so there could deter this kind of scam. for him to keep popping up with new usernames he must be raking it in.
