Scammed by rabeyazahid

So we've received another email this time involving Fiverr buyer rabeyazahid. She had purchased a contact list from the seller for Linkedin, along with with endorsements on her profile, all of which the seller provided.

Numerous times, rabeyazahid asked the seller to send the contact file to her email directly, circumventing the Fiverr TOS. This sent out alarm bells for the seller, and he adimantly decided to send it via Fiverr instead.

Despite all of this, rabeyazahid still left negative feedback on the buyers page and at no point did she try and contact the seller to resolve the issue. Thankfully, the Fiverr admins looked into this issue and deemed that the way rabeyazahid was unacceptable and removed the negative feedback she had left.

After a quick search regarding this user, it appears that she is part of a bigger team that is working for an outsourcing website. It appears that she would rather get a lot of work done for her, and then not pay for it. With unscrupulous tactics like this, we'd suggest that you stay well away from her and avoiding working with her at all costs. The same is also true of doing any business via her website since it's apparent that her and the rest of the team could potentially be untrustworthy. We have contacted her directly regarding this and will update this post accordingly.

Scammer alert! yumnatahir12345

So I've received an email from an upset buyer that. After reading over the case, I'm 100% supportive of the buyer and thus I've decided to post this on here. The buyer in question paid for 5 poems from yumnatahir12345 which came to the price of $15 for 1,000 words worth of work. This is actually a pretty reasonable price, and the poems were published by the buyer in a book.

However, after some investigating, the buyer found that these poems had merely been copied from the internet, and then sold on. Therefore, yumnatahir12345 is actively engaging in theft and copyright infringement whilst also charging the buyer at the same time! yumnatahir12345 knew that these poems would be going in a book and yet she still let the buyer publish them.

This could have landed him in a lot of hot water with the authorities over this since he too could be found to be violating international copyright law. The crux of this matter is to avoid yumnatahir12345 at all costs, use your money elsewhere.
