Hello to anyone listening!
I just signed up and was eager to get going with Fiverr. I read a lot of people’s success stories over the web and was excited to join this community of freelancers.
After setting up my first gig, I received my first message. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see what the offer entailed. Once reading the message and carefully looking, I noticed the buyer was spelling ■■■■■ like this “$kype”. When I typed back that I don’t have ■■■■■ the terms and conditions policy reminder popped up. That was my first red flag since I’m new.
The next following day (which is today November 25, 2019) I received another message. At this point, my excitement is only 50/50. I want to be optimistic but I’m naturally a realist and know-how corrupt this world can be. I opened the message and there was a link to further describe the job they wanted complete. The link was to dropbox with a pdf. The profile of the person was from the USA but the pdf was from a person in China. They wanted me to build websites offering $1500 a week. I reported the sender as spam.
I’m just curious to see if there are real clients for newcomers on Fiverr or will I constantly be spammed by all the scams?
Any help on this situation would be greatly appreciated! I tried to comment on Fiverr’s latest post on Instagram but they limit comments and I guess the reason is for this exact experience I’m having.
