    So today I wondered why 2 of my fiverr businesses had no order..i went on and to my shock..it said all my gigs had been 'denied'..so i went to modify them..'your account has been temporarily restricted' so I contact customer service..who give me some bot automated response..about i've breached their TOS and my account can't be unactivated..but i can still withdraw my money as it clears..am so furious..as my other 2 accounts are still active..so i dont think it's an ip tracing issue..but to be safe on my new accounts im going to add an additional email to my stealth pp's and get the money sent there..
    Why fiverr are acting like paypal I don't know. One thing i do know is i've not broken any TOS and it seems to me like there doing it just like paypal to earn interest on my money. I explained to them i've got 100% feedback and never ever had a cancelled order or complaint but they didn't give a rats ass..
    thanks fiverr now i've lost my main source of income..:( i'm a have to stealth fiverr soon!

    I'm not sure how fiverr handles blocking accounts with ips, but if I were you, I'd create some new accounts with tor asap if it were your main source of income.

    Sometimes it seems like everyone you deal with is acting like GayPal but it ain't all bad. You're still winning. Stealth. :cool:

    yeah am going to have to stealth..it annoys me so much though because i had so much good feedback and was level 2 on one account and level 1 on another.at least the good thing is i can still withdraw the funds as theyre clearing from both accounts unlike gaypal

    this is the thing..so i sent them 32 messages after their automated bot response..finally got response saying my account was restricted because apparently i have 2 accounts linked by location and paypal..messaged them back explaining and i had no response..my response just keep going to 'awaiting your response'..went to log on to check it..and it says 'account suspended' so i cant even open a ticket..yet i can log onto it on fiverr..to withdraw money still..its annonyed me so much..ive always worked hard on fiverr and gone out of my way for $5 which is just £2 hard, hardly anything, but because of the fact i did that they dont give a crap even though ive cashed in $1005 such march..they've made enough money of me it's ridiculous..

    1. they dont check by IP.

    2. Did you use the same pp account for both of your fiverr accounts or did you use the same pp account but different emails address's?

    Fiverr just don't ban people for no reason. This seems dodgy to me, you said yourself you have had multiple accounts, thats a breach of their TOS. No offence but your pretty dumb to use the same IP and same paypal man..come on now..do the crime do the time my friend..but who knows maybe if u do contact them they'll help you or show you mercy..
