    I know this works.

    I have both tested it and sadly had it done to me on one of my Top Seller accounts.

    We all know that there are tons of "Fiverrs" out there that use random images etc some belong to them, some are free to use and some are copyrighted.

    None of that matters on fiverr.

    You want your competition banned or at the very least frozen.

    Report them for using a copyrighted image. Fiverr doesn't have nor do they care to have any way of telling if they are actually illegal images or not.

    So in most cases they immediately freeze the gig in question.
    In my case they didn't let me show the image was free to use at all.
    They deleted the gig and would not let me bring it back even with corrected images.

    May not work every time, but I tested on another of my accounts (reported myself for an illegal image, even though the image was a GPL image) and they did the same to that account.

    Not nice, nor do I endorse doing but hey this is BHW and this surely a BH way to get rid of or at least slow the competition.

    It makes me sad :( There are better ways to make money online mate and even if you do so, for how long can you survive doing this?
    If you can't do anything good for anyone, please don't do bad things either!
    It takes time for someone to make reputation and peoples like you ruin them :(

    If I had known I'd get neg rep for sharing a BH hat method on BHW I wouldn't have posted.

    I have never and would never use this, nor do I endorse it in anyway.

    I am simply sharing an experience.
    I have seen countless people share neg experiences and just the knowledge of the experience has helped me along the way.

    Nonetheless, be aware that the method is out there and being used.
    Better to be aware of evil than to be surprised by it.

    My apologies, and Mods can feel free to delete this if they like.

    Okay first of all this is Blackhat world. And yes while this method is sleezy (if that's even a word) but it's about sharing here. Now of course there will be threads now asking why someone's gig was frozen for no reason etc.

    i have to be honest, this in fact a good method to stop many competition in fiverr who are doing exactly the same thing as me ( i was doing so well until they come) but oh well everyone deserve a time to shine, nothing last forever. just like a product, launch where sales start climbing and slowly it start to slow off you might find ways to get it up again like promoting it or whatsoever, but there is definitely a decline stage and thats nothing you can do about it and accept the fact and move on!

    the product life cycle ;) be creative.

    I don't get why everyone gets so angry about shares like this. If you don't like it, don't use it. I don't use these kinds of methods, and I would be angry if someone used it against me, but if they are my main competition and I am taking business away from them, I can't really blame them.

    Just because you dont usually see the repercussions of your actions, doesn't mean there aren't any.

    1) When you share or use an autoapprove list, you have a chance of destroying that persons site. Many people don't have good hosting plans and their sites end up being overloaded with too much bandwidth or storage usage and the host shuts them down. You have just destroyed all that persons work. What if they/their host didn't keep a back up? Do you think about them every time you order a backlinks package from someone or do a scrapebox blast?

    2) Every time you make an xrumer forum posting blast about your latest XXX site or something, their may be children reading that forum, or the sponsors/ad buyers of the site may decide to pull their ads because of the spam/content being posted. Do you care about that forum owner?

    3) When you get someone to sign up for a rebilling cell phone offer, you are only getting maybe $3 to $10, but that person could end up being charged hundreds or even thousands of dollars. What if that person was a poor Grandmother just trying to get her Grandson a fancy gift that she could never afford and the fine print was too small for her to even see? Do you care that she can't afford her medicine now because her phone bill was directly charged to her bank account?

    The list goes on. This is not a clean business. Your hands are dirty.

    In business, especially with an industry like SEO, when you achieve success, you are taking money out of someone elses pockets. If a guy is #1 position, and just barely feeding his family with that income and he slaves away day and night on it, what do you think happens when YOU get #1 position?

    If you want to try to me Mr. Morals and not hurt anyone, get in a different line of business. Almost every time you get success on the internet, there is SOMEONE else who is hurt because of it.

    **How about you USE this information to safeguard your Fiverr accounts?**

    Make BASIC crappy images in Paintshop which simply say the name of your Gig or something? Fiverr is much less likely to believe that a few words in Paintshop are copyright.

    BlackCat67 is just telling the community that this tactic is being used and could be used against them.
    He did not say he's using it on people. I say thank you BlackCat67 for making us aware that this trick is out there.

    I can't believe some people are putting the OP down for posting this. Awareness is the name of the game folks.
    If this info is too much for your virgin ears to handle, perhaps you're in the wrong line of work.

    Maybe Fiverr people should forward [a link to this thread | this info] to Fiverr support so they can learn about this tactic.
    Who knows if they care or will take action, but if they were to know and act, this trick would no longer work as well.

    Honestly, if it brings fiverr down a notch or two it would almost be worth it. Then people would learn the tried and true principle of not throwing all their eggs in one shitty basket.

    out of respect for BHW members who have major income streams on fiverr however, why do people even share shit like this? fiverr is a hell hole already, not only is the company trying its best to screw you over every chance it gets but so is every other seller. Do we really need another way to kill peoples income?

    Some of the biggest seo and backlink builders are avid members here on BHW, what if some newbie douchebag did this to them so they could take over their spot? It does not matter if he is condoning the use of it, some asshole will now troll fiverr and take out all of their competiton.

    This is NOT blackhat, this is douchbaggery at its highest. Please remove this thread.

    You just lost all respect on this forum from everyone who reads this. Out of sheer morals alone you should be banned from the face of the earth.
