What is "building and scaring personal and public contact info? :thinking: It makes me think of a :ghost:

I thought it was not allowed as it promotes spam.

Selling lists of personal contact information is allowed? :thinking:
I was thinking people have had gigs for that removed. I must have been mistaken. There is no other reason for it than to send spam.

I have a feeling this message from Fiverr is doctored.

That’s the only thing that makes sense.

Yeah I’m going to report it.

I’m pretty sure that isn’t a real message.

I did not think so either, but I was not brave enough to say so, :wink:

First of all the phrasing is off. It does not sound the way CS has spoken when I have contacted them.

I just looked at every response I have received from CS, and this one has many things that differ from those.

Please do let us know what you hear back from CS!

That’s exactly what I’m thinking, plus this font is reallly off. It looks doctored visually, on top of the narrative and message being suspicious. I’ll let you know!

Sir, I can show you the mail…
This is 100% true

I think he might be right about this…
I have to say, that I’ve searched the forum for selling emails and there is plenty of it.
I’ve also had a quick look at the image, and it doesn’t seem tampered…

If you can’t sell emails, Fiverr will deal with this situation. Otherwise, he took the right steps in asking support about the information and received an answer. Posting it on the forum is slightly odd. Not a great topic imo for everyone to know.

I thought everyone should know it

Great, you definitely made a wave in the forum!
If these types of gigs are allowed, they are definitely frowned upon.

You should be careful if you decide this is your choice for a gig, even if it is allowed.

"By taking part in selling private contact information, such as phone numbers, email lists, addresses etc., you are promoting spam and potentially participating in illegal activity. Such services are not allowed on our marketplace”.

I typed “email list gig denied” in the search bar above and found several posts on the subject. The above is a reason for such a gig being denied.

You are right. It doesn’t appear to be allowed.

The OP already had one of these gigs and deleted it after discussion on a post of his on the forum. He then produced this response from Customer Support.

Edit: I see he now has an email list gig again.

It will be good to get the matter clarified.

Hello again Mahfuz,

Sadly no friend. Once a Gig is deleted it can not be restored.

I hope that this assisted you and I am here if you need anything else.

Best regards

Is selling email addresses lists illegal in fiverr?

I deleted the gig and now I have made a new one…

Thnk somebody missed out a NOT before allowed. :wink:

Please, for your own sake, ask them again.

The scaring’s quite amusing though!

I don’t think so…
You @smiler3d can ask them.

I did. Fiverr Editorial Team is looking into it.
