Offsite Payment Requests Are Increasing - Report them ALL

I love fiverr & I buy a LOT of gigs on a regular basis to help my company.
Lately, I’ve noticed that the number of ppl requesting offsite payments has increased DRASTICALLY. This behavior is even coming from sellers who have established profiles with reviews who should know better.

I’m getting frustrated. I’m a busy person and I am wasting TONS of time in working out the details of my requirements just to have someone turn around as ask me to do something against the terms of service.
They do this to advertise on the platform at one price then drive it up once you refuse to pay them offsite.

I am reporting EVERYONE engaging in this behavior and I’m encouraging EVERYONE to do the same.

Perhaps Fiverr can combat the temptation of the sellers by reducing the fees a little for expensive orders - I don’t know. Whatever.

On my end though, I’m tired of it.

PLEASE REPORT THESE SCAMMERS AND RID THE SITE OF THIS FALSE ADVERTISING & LET’S GET BACK TO BUSINESS.

I am not a buyer here, but, if I were and some scoundrel tried to lure me offsite, I would report them so fast their head would spin!!!

I have done this on Ebay lately. Lots of scammers and shady types out there!
