Fiverr Community Forum

Getting fake messages

I have noticed when I earn money on fiverr and when it is cleared for withdrawal, I suddenly get a message with zip file as an attachment with password on it which is 1234. I don’t open the folder and try to chatt with the sender but get no reply. I think that is a virus just to hack your fiverr account and your money. I want to allert the fiverr users to take care. It has happened 2 times with me.

:warning: Please report the user to CS ASAP.
In fact, you can simply :triangular_flag_on_post: flag the message and block them from contacting you again.

Well I didn’t flag it yet giving her time to reply, but I will inform CS soon, thanks for the good suggestion.

Yes I know. I didn’t open it. Just messaged.

Yes, be sure to flag this!

Yes I wil. These are the hackers.

She doesn’t deserve that courtesy. It’s a naughty scam!

You’re welcome! :slightly_smiling_face:

Be safe out there in this virtual environment.
