Complaint Review: fiverr
fiverr Fiverr.com - Scammer's Paradise, Internet
*General Comment: A Social Site with a Small Financial Element
*Consumer Comment: Try filing a dispute...
Even if the seller does accept the job there is no way to encourage them to actually do the work and no way to dispute it. After a seller says a job is done the buyer is given a box to click positive or negative feedback. Where's the dispute button? Your money is gone whether you're satisfied or not.
"But this seller has 99% feedback, must be good, right?" Wrong: sellers create a fake buyer account and buy from themselves and leave positive feedback. Unlike eBay who check personal information and ban people using the same address or credit card, fiverr only requires an email to buy or sell so it only takes a second to create a fake account. Since the feedback is just a percentage you can't see who gave positive feedback for what, so a seller only needs to create one account and buy a few times from themselves to give themselves a stellar feedback score.
There's no way to avoid this, fiverr sucks
