What do you mean by your question? I do not get it.

My apologies, Actually I want to ask how can we protect ourselves from hackers on Fiverr? Thanks for asking.

Don’t click on suspicious links, don’t give out personal contact information, don’t sign up for anything…

What is “sapm” from the title, by the way?

I guess you mean some scam guys on Fiverr, right?

Those guys are lazy ones and look always for easy catch. If your profile and/or Gigs attract them, they would love to hit you.

Bait like unlimited revisions, money back guarantee, 100% satisfaction is what they love the most.

They use diverse mental techniques and language. They sometimes want to communicate outside of platform. They threat with bad reviews etc. They use “hello,”. They use “I need something very special with wow effect”. And many, many others…

EDIT. I see, you mean spam. Spam is basically everything you have never asked for. Irrelevant or unsolicited messages sent over the internet for the purposes of advertising, phishing, spreading malware, etc. @catwriter is right, moreover use report button.

Thanks for your reply. Actually, that is spam, not samp. My apologies for that.

@blavaro Thank you so much. Actually, I mean exactly this. You explain in a great way. Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Spam are unwanted messages. The only thing you can do against them is to block those who send them.
