Hello everyone, I am quite new. And I’d like to have your opinion to understand if this buyer is trying to scam some how (I have a weird feeling).
Introduction: He asks for kind of a big work, I make my honest offer, and he starts pushing to get a considerable discount, (almost 50% off), he promises more work coming and bla bla bla.
But this is not the point. Things that make me suspicious are:
1- He requests this: “Please send me an offer with this description text for the description: Services for the adaptation of marketing material including web for specific needs of the UK targeted market.
This is for my internal accounting system.”
(which is not really related to the gig I had to do)
2- he wasn’t able to describe clearly what he needed, and asked me to sign up with my email to his company coming webinar, and watch it to understand what the project was. And sent me a webinar link.
Then I say myself. He is a top Buyer he must be good!
So, I go check his profile he is a member only since july 2020, and has soo many reviews (even 4 or 5 per day in the last days) all of them are 5 stars and none of them says anything specific about a gig or a project.
Then I checked the reviews he has left to sellers (some of them are level 2 or top sellers) and they are all like “great work” and never say anything about gigs. and no review shows the delivered work.
What do you guys think?
Also, I feel so bittered thinking that there may be a huge exchange of fake reviews on the platform, and lots of top sellers are involved.
Many thanks in advance for your contribution
