So a buyer on Fiverr orders my basic $15 cryptocurrency article writing gig. After their requirements, they then say that this is a test order and if they like my work, they will hope to arrange some kind of deal going forward.
Long story short, I deliver and the buyer comes back with:
And here’s a taster of their order requirements:
In short, will you accept $26 for $45 worth of work and make sure each article includes research on and details of several talking points? - Err… NO!
But it gets better.
After I politely declined this generous offer to enter indentured 21st Century slavery, I get a whole barrage of insults, accusations that I have wasted the buyers time, and a warning that they will now be going to CS. Why? Because:
If I didn’t want to offer a discounted rate on future work, I should have canceled the first order.
Apparently, I did previously agree to work for $10 per order before my buyer placed their order.
Now, I most certainly did not agree to such a discount but guess what? The buyer has proof!
Yes, apparently. almost 2-years ago, I offered my buyer a $10 per article price. What he doesn’t state is that as well as almost 2-years ago, this was for a 300-word article (as that is what I offered then) and did not relate to my crypto gig as it did not exist at that time.
So, this will make it the second time in a week that I have attracted a certified lunatic. Any bets on how many I might attract by the end of the month?
