what to do when fiverr developer scams you by going outside fiverr



developer scammed me outside of fiverr

I have worked with this fiverr developer for few years now and he has asked me to go on telegram with him and do payments outside of fiverr. We did so a year ago and it went fine for a while in developing my game PickinPairs. However, my last payment was a year ago and I have been trying to contact him for my latest code but he has stopped all communication with me. He is also using my game and selling it to others as he is advertising it without my permission as I see it on his gig profile video. What should I do? I keep trying to contact him on fiverr and on telegram like we have done but he is constantly avoiding me. I have posted evidence of the interactions and my game

You are not allowed to mention/share the username of your seller/buyer here. It's a violation of Forum Rule 6 so avoid it next time.

Secondly, why did you take your project outside the Fiverr when the seller was already on Fiverr? It's prohibited to contact sellers/buyers outside Fiverr so now unfortunately, you will have to bear its consequences. Should have done everything on Fiverr so that Fiverr Team could take an action against him but nothing can be done now (sorry to say this). 

@ana_tomy or @Lena

Kindly remove the username of seller mentioned by OP. Thank you

Hi @aaparkly,

Please report the user if you haven't already, and our team will look into it all.

As it comes to your experience, sadly we don't have any option to keep you safe outside the Fiverr platform. 


Requesting or providing Email addresses, Skype/IM usernames, telephone numbers or any other personal contact details to communicate outside of Fiverr in order to circumvent or abuse the Fiverr messaging system or Fiverr platform is not permitted.

Fiverr does not provide protection for users who interact outside of the Fiverr platform.

@ana_tomy or @Lena, the name of the seller the OP mentioned, also appears in @donnovan86's post. 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention @vickiespencer, all done ☺️
