    There really is not as you will get the periodic issue with fraud... it is not rampant here on BHW but it does happen from time to time.

    I just consider the minimal amount of fraud part of the cost of doing business.

    In my short career I've had many disputes.
    Most often people just wanted their money back, but that's normal I guess.

    If you did not deliver any services it is normal yes, but allot of them probially got their order and still open a dispute

    Yes of course.
    But it depends on which services you are going to provide.

    If it's SEO then you'll have a harder time.
    Unless you control the websites where you create links to, then you can take them down if they issue a dispute.
    With software products it's easy, you just disable/revoke their license.

    But if you write articles, it's a bit harder indeed.
    I can imagine what bullsh*t some sellers have to go through with some shady buyers.

    Yes you are.

    I've been selling on BHW since 2010 and I don't think I've had more than 2 or 3 fraudulent transactions during that time.

    If you provide a quality service, a pleasant buying experience and good customer service you should be fine from anything other than the odd fraudulent transaction.

    Couldn't agree more. If you provide a service that isn't up to par then expect a ton of PP disputes. PP is known to side with buyers over sellers when it comes to these disputes.

    One of the most annoying situations is when buyers ask their money back for awkward reasons such as "they live in a poor country", etc.
    I mean, if you that is true then why bother buying digital and expensive products in the first place?
    Unfortunately too many people live in a box and think that "expensive" products will magically earn them money.

    I remember someone demanding their money back because they weren't "satisfied" with the article I wrote for them. This happened in a different site. I always offer a free revision but when I asked them what was particularly wrong with the article that didn't pass their standard all they said was it didn't sound "strong" enough. I can't do anything with that kind of feedback. Then they proceeded to give me a low rating which ruined my 100% approval. Up until that time I was a level 2 seller with 100% satisfaction rate.

    Keep in mind there will always be people out there who seem to get some kind of weird pleasure seeing others down or them thinking they were able to one-up you somehow. Like someone here said, consider these rare instances a part of the costs you need to shoulder when running a business. As far as I know there isn't any reliable way for you to counter their disputes.
