Beware of Scammy Buyer Request

I have seen a buyer’s request (twice now) in the Virtual Assistant section that claims to be on the lookout for smart and intelligent people to work with. They have a software “iTalk.zip” attached to the request where you will have to chat with the HR. When I downloaded the software and scanned with my antivirus program, I discovered it was a serious spyware. This is to warn sellers to be on the watch for these kinds of requests that may be out to steal your account information. Thanks. I have attached a snapshot.

I just received this, and was going to see the file, but my guts kicked in about the file, and I was going to ask the buyer to download teamviewer or anydesk before i can help them, as talking to them without purchasing my gig outside fiverr would violate fiverr policy…

I then googled italk.zip, and i see your post, so which means I will report to fiverr…Thanks @dbusiness_guy

I also receive this type massage 3times, 1 today morning.:scream: Tow of them with files, but i don’t open.
