Bad experience with the first buyer

Yesterday one of buyer contacted me and wanted me to chat with some people about the current affairs and politics she was offering me a job and i never sent any offer. She advised me to take a trail first and then start the actual work and gave me one email address with whom I chatted for an hour and then we talked about pricing she said she will talk to her majors and get back to me. And i was waiting since tomorrow and what i saw now is that I cannot contact to that person anymore. :frowning:

That person may have been banned for sharing contact details on Fiverr. That’s strictly forbidden.

It’s also strictly forbidden to message buyers on different sites, so I hope you didn’t chat to this person off of Fiverr.

She made me talk to one through email

Also, I think that buyer may be banned. Sharing personal details. However, We can block users, So, could be blocking you your buyer :thinking:

I just started fiverr 3 days ago and experienced this thing also im sending buyer req but no response

Hi! That wasn’t a buyer, it was a scammer. If someone ever sends your their email again, report and block them immediately. It’s strictly forbidden.

You will get more messages like that, they target new sellers.

As one of my gig is of data entry and copy paste work but i never saw a buyer request for that why is it so?

You must add relevant Keywords for your gig. And May be there are not buyer requests. Keep checking buyer requests. Keep in mind. Buyer requests are not showing all time. You need to check it always. And try to add more gigs with different categories.
You need to read more articles on this forum. everyone do that. So, Search your problems there. You can find many answers for your questions. :grinning:
