This has happened three times now over the past month or so.
Although I love working on Fiverr, I recently branched out to another platform as well where I figure I can take on bigger projects and long-term work. Since doing that, however, a few people have tracked me down by photo/username from that platform, found my matching profile here, and sent things like:
“Did you know someone is stealing your profile on _________?”
"I think this person is using your info without your permission: __________…"
I have thanked each of them for their diligence while politely confirming that no one has stolen anything, but it makes me wonder why anyone would really bother going through all that trouble.
I’ve never dealt with this before as I’ve worked exclusively on Fiverr for years now. It’s kind of nervewracking and I wonder if it’s going to lead to some sort of confusion about having “outside contact” with users even though they’re coming to me to ask.
