    I thought I would try fiverr so I bought 50 gmail accounts verified with phone. They also have yahoo email as well which was a bonus. I opened the file up, try a couple of gmail accounts and both were disabled.

    not a nice intro to fiverr, anyway I contacted seller..... I guess it seemed to good to be true, 50 accounts for $5 but they had a page full of reviews so I thought it was OK. I guess I have to wait a day for them to get back to me, a bit of time wasting as well gggrrrr

    That's really sad. Try contacting their support if the seller doesn't responds...

    Avoid cheap accounts, try a seller on bhw, or make them yourself.

    it is only $5 but it's annoying as I was hoping to get some much needed accounts. I would guess they will get back to me but who knows what the procedue is on Fiverr? Do I need to wait a certain time like 24 hours before making a complaint? Will Paypal refund me? etc....

    The seller really earn only $4, I think it's a little obvious this could be a scam..

    Did you accepted the gig? check the work delivered first and then you accept the gig, if is not as described just refused the work and ask to redeliver the work.

    Contact support. Good luck.

    reject the order, so the seller needs to deliver again, otherwise the gig will be cancelled automatically (after 2 or 3 days, i'm not sure about this one) and your funds will be credited back to you, only downside that you need to spend it on fiverr
    don't worry, fiverr has strong buyer protection, as a buyer it's almost impossible to get scammed there if you know how their system works

    Much better you create your own accounts. So far I haven't seen any seller of Gmail/youtube accounts that really last.

    Definition:

    scammed = money lost

    No money lost so not scammed.

    Just a sore point with me because we give customers refunds or void their payments because they look sketchy and then they run off with the mouth they got scammed. If you didn't lose money you didn't get scammed. You wasted your time but doubt you lose a dime if you contact the seller.

    Cheap prices always give you cheap accounts which will never last long.
    Great price brings you great quality accounts. Visit BST zone in BHW if you are really looking for some quality ones :)
