I've had a few good ones in the past but the sheer ratio of garbage from the cesspool of human parasites is beyond belief.
Just got scammed by someone offering "100% real followers" on Pinterest.
I should have known better. I know... I know. But I fell for it. The gig had 100% thumbs up from numerous buyers.
Are people really that stupid that they think they got the real goods? Or are they scared to "Neg" the seller in case of some kind of retribution.
Of course, the Pinterest followers were total fake accounts with the same spammy pins scattered quasi-randomly throughout them in a pathetic attempt to look legitimate. I just spent a happy afternoon deleting and blocking about 200 of them.
I've had some unbelievable scams on fiverr. One of the most heinous in the past was the article writer who was doing "character set spinning" so that the article looked legit but was in fact a copy of an existing page that had been put through some sort of ASCII set spinner tool. Copy paste even the word "the" from the article and you get zero matches in google!!! But manually type in an exact phrase and it's all there.
Amazingly (or perhaps not) the seller was in absolute denial that his "service" was anything other than noble and virtuous, and got very angry accusing me of scamming him (!!!) and making threats. The trouble with these scumbags is that they often seek retribution if you attempt to expose or report them.
I've also had a couple of really terrible link building gigs where I got utter spam links i.e. cloaked "footer" links on scraped site, in an invisible text block along with countless other spammy links.... thanks a bunch.
How is it that people think they are going to succeed in life by being a parasite? You put so much energy into trying to beat the system that you end up failing in life because you failed to invest in the most important asset of all - yourself. All you learned is how to be a rat and so you gradually exclude yourself more and more from the chance of true success because you are no longer an asset to anyone.....
