Buyer Spamming


#1

I had a buyer order a gig that I believe to be spam. It was a gig for me to write a blog post but they want me to write a review on trip advisor and gave me exact instructions on how to do it for them. They have only been on fiverr for four days. What do I do.

He will not complete the gig unless I comply with his instructions.

I opened a support ticket already alerting them of this. I just do not want it to effect my ratings as I have 100% positive feedback.

ahh see he orders an express gig from me probably so I do not have time to report it

Is this one of those orders where if you click on the link it will send you to a fake page having you have to re type in your password and username/email as if you need to log into your Fiverr account again? This sounds a lot like that scam that was going around. If you clicked on that link and had to re log into Fiverr, you should check your earnings and email attached to your Fiverr to see if this is the same scam by some French speaking person.

why do people need to spam legit sites anyways. Let the good sites be and go somewhere else.
