Surely there are rules against this sort of thing?

Subject: powerful backlinks for your site

Message Body:
Hello guys, I would like to make offer for you. Please buy my services from https://www.fiverr.com/************* or I will create negative porn backlinks to your website and get it removed from Google index. Please choose. I recommend that you buy my gigs to avoid losing business. If you order my gig, I will take your site to top and if no, I will spam it with porn links and get you removed from Google. I hope you understand the serious matter.


This e-mail was sent from a contact form on My WordPress Website …

Forward a copy of email or screenshot to the Fiverr Support for necessary action!! Fiverr Team will look into this for you and will gather evidences as needed and will surely take action if the seller mentioned is the culprit. Reach the Support!!

Mod Note:
This is a known issue and is a phishing scam only. —Any other questions or concerns should ONLY be reported to Support, not posted on the forum.

CAUTION: Many of the sellers who have received these threats had URL’s to personal or business sites listed on their Fiverr profiles or in gigs. In some cases these url’s are not on the approved list and it may help to remove url’s to off-Fiverr sites from your profiles/gigs.
