Someone contacts me with this message:
"Hi! i would like to know if you could do a promotional video if i will send you my website."
"Hi there, yes for just 5$ i can create an advert for you. Simply send me your script and i will do the rest. Please check the gig description for more information. Thanks"
After that i will never hear from him again.
That happens to like 8/10 messages.

Yes, it happens quite often. Most likely the buyer contacted several sellers at the same time and someone else either responded faster or offered a better price.
