My message is being reviewed for ToS Violation

I was in a dispute with a buyer over cancelling an order and I sent this message:

“I said no, if you do not accept my cancellation, I will leave a 1 star review.”

Now I have this sent to me:

“Your message is being reviewed by our Trust and Safety team due to a possible Terms of Service violation. This may take up to 24 hours. In the meantime, ****** can’t see your message. We appreciate your patience.”

I believe it is because I said the words ‘1 star review.’ What should I do? This is my first offence. Will I get banned? Should I withdraw funds to save them?
I never did leave any reviews.

It is against the Terms of Service to threaten someone with a negative review. You will most likely receive a warning.


Ok, I understand that a warning may get me demoted, but will I get banned and if I do, should I withdraw my funds?

Yes…, i think it’s will wise to withdraw your fund first.
Otherwise…, (Worst case when your id got banned…,) you will need to wait 90 days before able to withdraw your fund.

Thanks, I withdrew my funds.

That’s blackmail. It surprises you Fiverr penalizes blackmail?
