Messages are all just spam?

Okay I just joined Fiverr about a week ago, haven’t finished putting all my gigs up, wanted to feel out the site first. The first day I get 5 spam messages. Now every day all I’m getting is the same messages from “Username87984679821”

So basically this website is useless and I’m just going to have to check my mail every day for spam? Cause that seems like a complete waste of time to me. Maybe I’m the only one? I dunno. What happens with you all?

I am sorry you’re having that experience! I’ve been selling for two months and it only happened once to me. I’ve done 17 sales so far so I’m happy

Unfortunately, many newbies get regular spam/scam messages. The Upw*rk one is very common.

Some sellers find that once they level up the messages become far less frequent.

I have been doing this for 2 months, Unfortunately, I also received spam messages in my early weeks. Just mark as spam, and don’t waste your time.

Funny enough I get the Upwork scam on multiple platforms, so not surprised it’s here too.

Appreciate the input. I just wanted to know if it was just me or if it was a common thing in the community.
