DON'T DO SIGN UP TO THIS SCAM! august_offer Fiverr Vote Dot Com

  1. If fiverr was going to change something, they would send it direct to your email inbox and have it all over the place advertising… not in a shady inbox message like the one pasted below.


  2. Fiverr already advertises for us in emails to potential buyers and with their algorithm… why would we need to sign up for some extra program that makes no sense.


  3. If you click the link and see another small link on the page and click on it, the other page won’t load at all.


  4. Yes, it looks just like fiverr but it’s not. Anyone can steal the fiverr logo and even website design to create their own to look just like it even down to matching up the links at the bottom of the page.


  5. You can always look up their website on whois.net and see who the real site owner is. I did and it said the domain was for sale… lol… apparently was just bought and didn’t even register with whois yet.

    For the record, here was the email that was sent to me:

I just got it too - unfortunately I didn’t realise it was spam and filled in my details. It was only when it just hung there egg timing that I realised something was wrong… I’ve changed my password and reported it to Fiverr Customer Support. Is there anything else I should do?


#4

I just got it, too. Horrible phishing. I’ve reached out to the Fiverr staff so they can pursue.

OK thanks very much @kjblynx - I’ll do that. I wonder if there is CCleaner for MAC? I just changed to that from Windows.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but this scam is still going on. I received one of these today and unfortunately thought it was official (and I consider myself web savvy :frowning: Even though I have now changed my password and security answer this is so super annoying. Have reported the message and have contacted Customer Support.
