    A heads up.

    I have had problems with sellers on fiverr missdescribing their gigs or not delivering work and even when working with customer support they always side with the seller and remove my negative feedback even tho i told them i would rather loose my money so other buyers dont get scammed.

    Problems i have with fiverr.

    A seller marked a gig as complete but delivered nothing then eventually 10 days late did the video i paid for. only to get fiverr to remove my negative feedback about the seller marking the gig as complete and sending nothing.

    Today a seller had two gigs i brought.

    one advertising PR2 link and one advertising a PR3 link.Altho what the seller delivered was a zero pagerank link for the PR2 gig and a PR2 link for the PR3 gig....and now customer support has removed my feedback even tho this seller is committing fraud and support wont even respond to my messages.

    What a joke fiverr customer support are.

    Avoid these two sellers
    fiverr..com/angela_z - missrepresents all her gigs and insults you when messaging you.
    and
    fiverr..com/alanletsgo - doesnt deliver videos and marks gigs complete and doesnt respond to messages.

    Unfortunately there is a lot of Weather Forecasting Stones sold on Fiverr. If they aren't lying, fiverr has to side with them. If fiverr doesn't KNOW if they are lying, fiverr will side with them if they don't get a lot of complaints. Make sure YOU are educated as a buyer before you place any order. Know what questions to ask the seller, especially the difference between DOMAIN pr and PAGE pr.

    no these are site wide links!!! i am an experienced buyer and buy a lot on there but when they remove feedback that is designed to warn other buyers about fraudulent sellers whats the point in having a feedback system? if they just remove the feedback left with one email from the seller?

    its not like my problem is the sites are poor in my opinion! the sellers are advertising easy to check these facts!!

    I have been using fiverr and whenever, i don't feel satisfied i always get my money back or have the gigs re-do it.

    In most cases, fiverr are the ones that collects the money for me without any delay, maybe you weren't descriptive enough.

    Here is what am going to do, i will send this thread to fiverr customer care and get back to you.

    Pls PM me for the response.

    I will keep you all posted here too.

    That is because some, not some but many buyers are really idiot and give a bad rating to the seller for the good work. That is the reward of their bad deeds you are getting.
    Anyhow i think if you can give fiverr customer support with detail info with proofs they will definitely do the right. In your case the proofs may be the PR0 site address and the delivered work of seller and the title and description of their gig.

    exactly, fiverr almost always sides with the buyer

    it's a quite old thread, but maybe OP is still around, so to OP: JFYI, a seller cannot mark an order as complete, it's either done by the buyer or automatically after 3 days

    your story is a little bit off

    He is referring to when the seller notifies the buyer that the gig has been completed. This is when the 3 days start. I had a seller do the same to me. When I notified Fiverr, they refunded my money.

    Luckily for me I never buy gigs, and always sell :) I've never had any problems with negotiations that can't be fixed. It's always been smooth apart from some snobby picky buyers.

    Thats the main problem with most of the people on fiverr, they try selling stuff they know nothing about.

    With fiverr now, if the delivered work is not great, you can get them to resubmit them. The gig has about at least a 3 day waiting period before it auto-completes. So check it before it does that.

    Thats unusual, fiverr does not remove negative feedback without consent of the buyer, thats what they always say when inquiring about neg feedback removal.

    I have to disagree, I have several issue's recently and fiverr sided with the buyer even though I delivered 100%. One user didnt like the photos I put on 3k twitter accounts and wanted me to change them all. Of course TA died rigth after the order so I couldnt do anything, he got 3k account list and passwords and fiverr gave him back his money lol.

    I think this is very appropriate when it comes to some of the fiverr gigs...

    Actually, my experience when I was selling on Fiverr were completely different.

    Scammers who would buy a gig and then make complaints to Fiverr would always be refunded

    This is surprising, in my experience they usually side with the buyer.

    Also, they will not remove neg rep unless the customer consents. I once had a guy buy my gig, which is a guide, which includes an affiliate link (I include a normal link, and specifically mention they can use my affiliate link if they liked the gig). Then he leaves feedback "seller sent nothing but an affiliate link" and plops his OWN affiliate link into the comment. So he both lied about what the guide included (it had alot of additional information) and tried to make $ on my gig, the intent was to pretty much ruin my gig.

    Fiverr removed their aff link, but left the feedback stand, even though it was a complete lie.

    I could have told y'all this months ago. Regardless of the outcome, they will also side with the buyer. I've tested this myself in numerous situations.
