    I've withdrawn $500 (well, $496 to be exact) and confirmed the verification email but I did not get the money on my paypal account.

    It's been 3 days but I still haven't received the money.

    Any idea on what should I do about this? :/

    Fiverr support keeps repeating the same replies like a parrot and tells me to wait.

    Yikes. Sorry to hear about that. I haven't had that issue with them yet but they are starting to get on my nerves with some of my gigs and their search upgrades. Its a little unusual to have to wait that long.

    Is there a number you can call? They might be more helpful over the phone.

    relax. they're looking into it. it's not in their best interest to steal from you. bombarding them with responses like that will only further delay a resolution

    to say fiverr stole $500 from you is bullshit - its taking the withdrawl a little longer then it should. They don't steal money.

    Jesus don't make threads calling people thieves because you didn't get paid inside 24hours. Everyone makes mistakes... I'd give them a week at least before calling someone a thief.

    What time period does the TOS say they have? How long is the paypal part of it going to take.

    They never cheated me out of a penny, but it takes what it takes.

    like everyone else has said, chill out. They're not going to move any faster regardless of how many times you contact them

    Wait longer, If you haven't been paid within the next 72 hours then contact their support via telephone. Just sit tight and try not to worry. It does seem as though they are sending your templated messaged though.

    I bet if you hit "Jay" in the kneecap with a baseball bat, and threatened to hit him in the other one, I bet he could "somehow" manage to find your money. Jay sounds like a real douchebag to me. He steals your money, then gets all his friends on BHW to tell you to "wait" while Jay goes down to the strip club and get's lap dances from post-op transexuals.

    FUCK YOU, JAY, you fucking THIEF! Dump that she-male off your stiffie and give the man back his money.

    Exactly

    Plus OP one can make some assumptions that typically apply to financial control they may for example pay out say $3.92 to $100 amounts immediately then any payments above are red flagged for checking by a human to verify validity - if say that is fact then of course payment will not be instant

    Now this thread is all over the web and does not look good when you publically disparage a company using 'Thieves' as your leverage tool to claim payment!
