    Alright guys,
    An amazing thing is just happened with me. Let me explain it you.
    I had a yahoo answer account level 6, yea it take me sometime to get up there. (Well I was earning from it as well)
    Then I thought to post a gig in fiverr to earn some extra bucks.
    So, I started a gig offering people that I will only do 1 answer with your link for $5. It was going quite well and I had 143 gigs delivered already until I received a yahoo answer account ban mail.
    Wow!!!!!!!!!
    Now I turned to ask them why did they ban my account, they told me I was selling answers which is illegal and also they mailed my gig link.
    Then, I tried to trick them and told them that its not me at all and told them its someone else.
    Then a funny and stunning thing happened, he took 3-4 screenshots of my delivered works and showed them to me and he told me that he can show rest of the screenshots too and also said he will not reply to my mail again :p
    Wowiee!!!
    Now someone tell me how he got those screenie? Is fiverr staff is also working with yahoo answers?
    I will say that find some alternate to report your clients and dont post direct links which I was doing.

    Well this is not the end.
    The breaking news is I have 21 orders in queue :)

    And the most hot news is I am not even 1% unhappy because that account paid me a lot :D :D
    But ya I again have to start from beginning since it was my only yahoo answer a/c :p
    And yep be careful with yahoo answers + fiverr now.

    Did they delete the answers that your fiverr customers bought?

    Sorry that happened to you but as you said, at least you cashed out. I've bought some yahoo answers gigs on fiverr and been very happy with them. Hopefully that isn't going to be a widespread problem and hopefully they don't go back and delete the links built. :eek:

    Maybe yahoo staff had some funds and bought some gigs on fiverr. I mean what is $5 for them ? :). Anyway probably they just contacted fiverr staff mentioning some sellers that had a lot of sales and asked for proof.

    Roparadise, it was my only yahoo answer account and I was using it from last year, I was almost there to rich level 7 before it happened :)

    and HatIsBlack, then he can have his screenie only, how he got other delivered work screenshots? and also he said he can show me all of them too.

    Were you posting direct links to yahoo answers when delivering the work? They could've blacklisted fiver referers.
