Is this a spam message?


#1

I just got a message that reads:

“hit me up at {an email address} am [name] A lady from USA i have business to discuss with you am not always online here i wait for your email to my email box”

when I opened the message fiverr seems to have already marked it as spam. And this seems like a really obvious spam message but I’m not 100% sure, because I don’t want to miss a sale if I can get one haha.


This is spam ? what should I do?

Sounds like spam to me. Not allowed to respond via email or communicate outside of Fiverr either. I am thinking it is spam. Respond and maybe ask her what service she was intrested in from you?

Hope this helps!

1- I think it’s a spam message that you need to avoid.
2- contacting people outside fiverr is not allowed by Fiverr TOS. So even if this is not a spam, you are not allowed to contact this person.

If you want the possible buisness and they turn out to not be a scammer/spam: explain you will be online to answer any of their questions.

okay thanks so much! I’ll do that

Your welcome! Glad I could help :slight_smile:

hey!!! Same thing happened to me!!! I just woke up with buzz of my phone having a message from this same lady. I thought she must not be knowing that it is against Fiverr rules and politely informed her and is waiting to get a reply logged into forum and saw your post.:scream:

@meivix It is definately a spam as we both received same message.

This is nothing but a spam! So, please report it to CS.
Thanks.


#10

#11

@meivix I reported her to cs just now.


#12

I just got the same message as well. Spam for sure.


#13

@zoedesigns one more seller got the same message by same person (i doubt if she is a lady at all) he posted about it just few mins ago. @surajit_singha


#14

Yup. I just blocked them, reported them and moved on :smiley:


#15

I also got her message just now. Is she a spammer


#16

@meivix @zoedesigns @surajit_singha Just now I got same message again!!! From another account as i have blocked her with same email id to contact… what the hell is happening ???


#17

Yes she is. Just block and report her


#18

@sugamlife I just did as well! I just got the first one and blocked, reported and ingored her and got another from another account just now. This is getting crazy.


#19

Can she hack our account? Why she made another account and sent that same creepy message again even if we blocked her. This is very creepy @zoedesigns she messaged again that means she is targetting us ???
