It is against Fiverr Forum rules to post the name of the person you communicated with. please remove it. :slightly_smiling_face:

There are a few posers running amuck, I’ve run into a few of them, too. I called them out on their rubbish and POOF they vanished in the wind. Blah! I wasn’t born yesterday! :baby:t4:

Ugh! A nasty one, too.

Like the old adage goes… If it sounds too good to be true then, you know what to do.

I hope it is not a contagious disease starting to arise, if so, we’ll urgently be needing a “Forum’s Flu” vaccine for this… :wink:

It may be related to the “I got an order” posts I see lately. Imagine the Forum if every seller that got an order came here to tell the Forum about it!
