    So I've been lurking around here for a while now I think it's about time I say something. I've been making good money with adsense for the past 5 years. As I got banned for obvious reasons I thought hey lets try something else.
    I never had any experience with seo ranking or anything I've tried to learn but adsense money kept me away and I kind liked to stick with what was working for me better than loosing time and learning something new that could serve me well in the future, which I realize now was a very stupid mistake.

    Enough about me...

    So I tried to order some backlinks off fiver "30.000 GSA backlinks" which as I'm being a total idiot I thought wow 30.000 links for £3.49 sh*t thats dead cheap.
    After less than 24h The job was done... which was a bit off.
    after a week no backlinks showed up on majestic so I went to check deeper in the guy's reviews and I've found this :
    Capture.PNG

    This went on and on for at least for 80 more in the past month alone. It doesn't take a genius to realize that this guy has been buying gigs from him self and self reviewing to become a top seller on Fiver. Maybe most of you would say "Good Mourning" we already know this sh*t but I really didn't know.

    Yeah, this happens a lot. People boost their ratings and seller levels all the time, although usually in a better way than this, lol.

    That doesn't prove his service is crap though. If he delivers 30.000 GSA backlinks, that's still exactly what he advertised in the first place. You got fucked because you don't know what this service is for.
    The thing you need to learn now is not to point these cheap GSA links to your money site. You need to use them as a tier 2, or even tier 3.

    I'm surprised fiverr let him get away with that actually. I guess they're too busy making sure no one talks about Skype or Gmail in their private messages.

    I know what this service is for. I'm not an expert but I'm not stupid either. I used this service just to test something and he didn't deliver no backlinks appeared on majestic even after a whole week.

    Check the report he supplied you with and randomly see if they are live. You can use an automated live link checker like is in Scrapebox as well to see if they are alive. Although that is not as accurate as a manual check (you can't manually check 30K links), it will give you a pretty good idea as to whether you got what you paid for.

    On the other hand, guys sell GSA blasts here in the marketplace and if they do not deliver you have some recourse/protection so maybe next time you want a GSA blast pop over there.

    Just request a refund, if he doesn't give over say something like you've be threatened with legal action and they always give you a refund.

    I've done it to a service where promised 5k links I got more like 200. They don't want the bad feedback.

    Fiverr is slowly becoming like Warrior Forum - more interested in fees from sellers than supporting buyers. Look at some of the crap being sold on there ; " I will send you positive thoughts " for $5 and pay an extra $5 to get them within 24 hours. WTF

    If there's a market for positive thoughts then let people buy and sell them.

    I believe GSA blast won't appear in Majestic of the time. It's crappy Tier 4 links. Plus, a whole week is nothing for indexing those links.

    90% of gsa gigs are crap and don't fulfill their description. I saw a gig "Make 700000 links" in 2 days and I ordered it x3 just for shits and giggles and ran the report through scrapebox link checker and found only around 25000 live verified links. I mean the guy did have 2.1 million links in the report at least, right? Hahaha

    If you think now it's bad, I'll tell you that 3 years ago it was even worse.

    @OP if you didn't receive anything you can report the user. And try to communicate with him anyway, a bad review is like the worst thing that can happen to a Fiverr seller.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    You can change your review after the fact if you're not happy with it or feel like you got duped.

    While I admit that looks pretty damn shifty, it could very well be legitimate. That guy could've been reselling those packages. I am a Fiverr seller and sometimes my review feed gets a bunch in a row from the same user who's reselling my packages. You never know.

    U can easily search this gig on fiverr and what OP says makes no sense
    The gig has already over 900 reviews there is absolutely no reason why he should "buy" fromhimself as more and more positive ratings come every day
    The person who left the reviews shown in screenshots most likely likes the service and more probably he is a reseller.
    A couple of years ago when i was selling gigs, i also had lots of returning buyers

    How on Earth can you prove or disprove delivery and monitor results ?

    What next, Negative Thoughts gig ?

    Forget negative seo to harm your competitors websites, instead for $5 we will send negative thoughts. Get even with the person for $5.

    Gig Upgrades;

    +$10 we will wish them harm
    + $25 we will use a voodoo doll for 90 minutes
    +$50 we will use a voodoo doll for 24 hours
