    Hi, everyone,

    I sold a service for five 5 gigs, and made the final delivery. Then this morning, i was shocked to see all 5 gigs were cancelled by buyer, rather than completed as i expected. I am quite confident with my work, and buyer has no reason to complain its quality.

    So, i have no idea of what it is going on. I could not contact buyer, and buyer did not send me any message to explain this!

    I contacted fiverr, and they said buyer has a problem with paypal, and the money was reversed. However, i highly doubt that, as if there is dispute problem with buyer's paypal, how could he deposit money from pp to his fiverr account, then ordered my gigs??? why the order could be cancelled by buyer only after the work is delivered. Then seller lost both money and quality work??

    Now, i just doubt that buyer is a scam, but how fiverr could not stop this?? or fiverr stole my money?!

    Mates, anyone has similar experience and how to solve this and get my money back??

    Thanks for help in advance!

    Yeah there are some f*** who give orders when the orders is completed they cancel by saying that the work is not completed we want refund if not refunded they give negative review and if u got a negative review for removing that review u have to return the money.

    what happened is:

    he bought your gig, you delivered, and then he filed a dispute with paypal against the fiverr transaction, and in those cases paypal automatically refund the buyer.

    Just move on, don't waste your time; keep delivering orders on time, do your best, and soon enough you will find yourself making some good coin.

    The reason your buyer gave - of a PayPal problem is bull - since Fiverr charges buyers in advance and holds it in escrow. Did you try contacting Fiverr support? They are very quick and usually are helpful. Unlike what someone else said, Fiverr doesn't go with the buyer. If he had asked you to revise and you did not do it, it would be fair. Without that, you are well within your rights to contact Fiverr. Send them a mail, mate. Be polite - usually it works!
    This is a one-off instance. Fiverr is usually a great place. Don't get dissuaded with one happening. All the best - money will flow.

    Oh. I think fiverr is the safe place to sell the service and there is no cheaters because buyer pay first before they order. After reading your experience I think I was wrong!

    Thanks for sharing. I will be more alert.

    The only option is to contact Fiverr about the buyer. HOWEVEr, he can easily create another account and scam you. If it's an SEO service then PM him about the payment -- remember that you have leverage since you know his site and his keywords. Just saying.

    If you delivered what was expected, fiverr should side with you.
    I am just assuming fiverr isnt that stupid to allow scams like this, again if you can prove you did the work...

    This sounds so much like Ebay...Fiverr supporting buyer over seller.But you cannot get stuck on this. Keep working to promote your fiverr gigs. Like everything else online now days. It takes longer to get going but you have to stick with it. Good luck!

    Fiverr is siding with the buyers as Paypal is forcing them to. When the buyer disputes the charge through Paypal the funds automatically go back to Paypal until their review is over. Pretty much you are screwed. move on and keep up the hard work as we all get scammed sometimes

    Wow, that's pretty horrible I didn't know that could happen. I use Fiverr but have had minimal problems in 25 orders +

    Don't just remove your trust from all this incident leave it back and move forward. This happens with almost everyone trying to make money online.

    Just kick it off and start again and be alert from the next time.
