    This is unbelieavable 2-3 people on fiverr copied my whole description and also title word by word.
    I created nice optimized description for fiverr search but this stupid algorythm cant recognize same descriptions.
    Now this noobs which cant think outside of box are stealing my orders beacuse they are ranked on the same or better postions.
    I dont know what to do i am sure if i will contact support they will delete their gigs but my also beacuse its made quite blackhat way.
    What should i do? Buy their gigs and leave them bad feedbacks?

    I believe that BH should also have some moral rules . And if you think that copying is thinking outside the box ...

    That's normal on fiverr. Sometimes they'll even copy your gig picture and stamp them with their name or so. Haha

    I have had them copy the description off my website and paste it as their gig description before......makes it easier to find the buggers though :D

    In my opinion you got gamed! They thought outside the box, good idea flood the market with different accounts all by the same guy, which one do you go for then?

    is it worth you spending $5 and post a really bad review?
