Okay. I lost count of how many times your “buyer” gave you red flags. First of all, why would he want to contact outside of fiverr just for T-Shirt design? and you went with it.

Good for you, nothing bad happened.

he tells me that “The main term is our sample or data we provide to you is much private for us we can not upload it on fiverr and on internet , that why we deal with our client with team viewer to share our data privately ! Beside of it work as you want !

yeah bro nothing happen

It must be really, really, really easy to hack and scam on the internet is my conclusion. So many marks, so little time.

yeah its too easy
new seller have to careful

Everyone should be careful. Everyone should also read Fiverr’s Terms of Service and follow the rules; offering or accepting contact outside of Fiverr is strictly forbidden.

yeah thats good thing never do business outside

It’s amazing how many people run with their eyes wide open into these kind of traps.
I don’t even save the password for my bank and Paypal on my own computer.

thanks for that i will do same on my laptop

On the subject of teamviewer’s security in itself… It was recently hacked about a month or 2 ago… it was widespread and tons of people posted about it on reddit. I can vouch for the fact that it happened because I walked in on seeing my computer being controlled remotely. Their password server or whatever got hacked so those people who had unattended access setup in team viewer were open targets. I had to make some calls to get some Xbox subs and Apple I-Tunes orders reversed to say the least…

You are lucky that Fiverr didn’t block you for accepting contact outside Fiverr which is also against Fiverr’s Terms of Service.
Bottom line, you should always remind such clients that doing business outside Fiverr is forbidden, and if they persist, you should report them at once to avoid stories.

thanks for the tip and heads up…thanks bro God bless

Yes, that is one of the pillars of Fiver’s TOS and he broke it and then shared a post about it on a Fiverr forum. (facepalm)

His answer should’ve been “I’m sorry I can’t contact you outside of Fiverr”.

You really lucky fiverr didn’t block your account after all. There’s transparency when you deal on fiverr. Anything outside is at your own risk. I hope new sellers take note of this.

thank you i dont know so

i know that thats why i am posting here so other seller dont do that

i am newbie sir so i dont know that time what to do . but now i know its too dangerous

i think i have to read Fiverr’s Terms of thats better for me

Team Viewer? Man that guy’s on a totally new level of scamming LMAO
But yeah I’m sorry about that

i also shocked when i know this things happen to me but thank god nothing bad happened
