Is this a scam?


#1

A woman on Fiverr is offering me a free book cover. She says once I purchase it she will refund me five dollars. What do you guys think, do you think it is a scam. She said all I have to do is promote her if I like it.

This is 100% a scam. Think about it… I would not be surprised either if the cover actually turned out to be a book on amazon and not a cover. Why would anyone want you to buy a cover then refund you.

Reply to @markp: she said she wanted me to write her a good review, because I am a writer.

Reply to @judgevaus: OMG! She offered me the same thing. I told her I didn’t need an ebook cover. She originally had a 2 for 1 banner deal that she posted here in the forum. I responded to her post, and she sent me that PM. I thought it was weird.

Reply to @musiclover: was her name [fragglesrock]



Sheriff’s note: no names on the forum please!



Also - I would tread very carefully - if it smells fishy it’s probably a fish …
