    Many of my fiverr accounts got suspended, few lost their levels, disabled etc. Its not only me.. I have confirmed with many other fiverr seller their accounts are disabled too.. First they degrade your levels and within few hours you are gone.. If you see your level degraded for no reasons it should serve you as a warning.

    I would recommend you to withdraw the available funds ASAP or else it would be blocked for next 90 days.

    PS: This applies only to people who breaking their TOS, spamming etc. FB, Pinterest, Twitter services are at a great risk. Also its not my cheap attempt to scare the sellers.

    This is true. I posted a couple of gigs yesterday to sell Pinterest and Instagram accounts. Gigs were published, then went into moderation and were pulled down. I contacted customer service to ask them why. They told me that they received complaints from Pinterest and Instagram. If they receive complaints, they just axe the gig rather than be hassled. Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

    Well if they receive complains, some offshore blackhatfiverr.com will popup and will ignore complains and everything will keep spinning around. :)

    Yes yes this recently happened to me as well... I had been on the site since 2 months after their first beta launch, over 900+ complete gigs with an overall rating of 99%, level 2 seller, etc. (Well over $7,000 in revenue generated total from there at the end when I had gig extras setup and every 3rd or 4th order that would come in would have an extra $5-20 tagged onto it)
    Regardless, it took ALLOT of time to build up and maintain the reputation that I had achieved. Over 80% of my first time clients came back for more business, I would give the most ridiculous bonuses ever seen in the gig niche of article creation, twitter services, backlink lists, e-mail lead lists, etc. I also had a wonderfully friendly and prompt relationship with the support team, having 600+ messages with them after it was said and done, I knew everyone from the beginning and they honored allot of my wishes and requests even against their own tos, when the moral thing to do was against their tos. I figured I held a little bit of klout at this point ya know? I could message support 2 minutes after someone would leave a negative comment (which only happened 6 times total out of 923 gigs) and explain to someone in support how i wanted it removed and it would be done within 10 minutes of the incident.
    At the end I was getting 10-25 orders per day, with at least every 3rd or 4th order containing gig extras for extra $$.
    One morning I login to do my daily delivery grind before class, password / login combo is denied...
    wtf... ?
    Email support, have to wait 2 days, finally get a standardized message back from someone I had known for years stating i had committed an infraction where I had agreed to help someone with something outside of fiverr. Which was true, I agreed to help someone update a plugin on their website which I had helped setup through a gig, of course this would need to be done outside of fiverr, being the gig itself required these actions to be taken in order to complete the gig.
    I asked them if this was a joke, 2 days later, i get another standardized response about how they cannot do anything for me and they appreciate my cooperation, etc. Over the coarse of the last 2 day waiting period, I did receive a standardized email from fiverr stating my account was perma-banned, 3 days after It had taken place.
    I must have written 20-30 small story sized emails to support after this horrendous display of how they, after their 15 million dollar angel investment re structure, completely abandoned an honest seller like myself, whom broke none of the tos to a degree to justify their action and then tried to deal with this by simply making me wait longer and longer for a response on every message I would send them, they would do things like send me the same standard message twice to different messages I would send inquiring about why this was happening, etc.
    You cannot imagine the frustration incurred on my behalf, this was at the peak of my gig sales, and the money was coming in every single day, between $30 - $80 just from fiverr alone (some days as high as $170+), then being thrown to the curb like a dog and being treated like they do not know you, after how much money you made for them and your loyalty to their company over all others, etc, made not 1 bit of difference when it came down to it.
    The simple fact was this happened to me as a result of their 15 million dollar angel investment re structuring which took place ironically in the exact same months preceding and ongoing through my ordeal.
    Now you see what Fiverr has become and it is so far from what the original concept was and how the original sellers were treated / given search preference.
    Did you know their search algorithm is actually designed now to give preference to a gig of a competitor in search results whom joined the site less than 3 days ago, has less than 80% rating and zero complete gigs on the particular gig that is outranking yours with 100s of sales and 100% rating overall, The algorithm gives preference to these new, inexperienced sellers, 75% of the time, over those who have worked 2+ years to get where they are as far as order volume and buzz in the community is concerned, it is very hard. Fiverr says they do this with their search to 'balance' things and keep things fair... Does it make sense that their TOS is against any and all black had internet marketing services, tools, cracks, nulls, etc. yet some of their most popular gigs are people whom will use Xrumer or Scrapebox on your site to get backlinks in a pure backlink fashion which is not illegal of course, but not at all in line with the image Fiverr is trying to project - but since the gigs get 3-400 orders per day , they are left alone and they go after cleaning up the smaller fish like myself whom are just on the brink of being top rated salesmen and whipping them out to make room in the search results to favor these other nobody's with crap services...
    Sorry for the rant... It was just frustrating as hell and I will never go back. I stick entirely to SEOClerks now... which I wish i could have known about before or during my business with Fiverr because SEOClerks is everything that Fiverr wishes it could be... Completely community driven, better features, layout, gig categories, gig prices, etc.
    Ill shut up meow... If you are not hip to SEOClerks use the links above and here to join under me please :) It is free of course and once you join you can get paid from your referred customers gig purchases and sales for the rest of time (or as long as they are on the site)

    This is true. I was a top rated seller and they banned me because my brother and sister are working from the same house...so we have the same ip... Fiverr is gay

    Agree with Tacitinc, go to SEOClerks. As a seller, it is stupid to sell on fiverr for $5 (earning only $4) when you can sell the service for the price and quality it deserves on seoclerks without risk of being banned.

    I think since the time has passed since this thread began, we can see exactly what I was talking about in my post above, more clear than ever in the newly designed system on fiverr... they simply ignored every issue they had, and gave the user a new layout to stare at, and banned all the users who were starting to ask questions... i mean just look at the alexa.com reviews for the fiverr site now, over 60% are completely negative, ironically all experiencing the same issues... The sad part is fiverr could be so much better than what it is, with hardly any work or investment needed, it just comes down to HOW YOU DEAL WITH PEOPLE, and once you loose that touch with your customers & the people, who if they were not there - would have no income coming to the site , then its just all become about the $$ game.

    SEOClerks new design is so much more fluent & smooth running / less glitchy than fiverr, its night and day differences... But still the #1 thing that i think sets seoclerks apart is they are still ran by a couple of staff members and dedicated users... growing larger every day thanks to the mass fiverr exodus!
