Possible Scam? Anyone get this?

Hey y’all…does anyone else receive messages like the one pasted below? So far I’ve gotten 2 identical messages from different buyers but with an intro like this…I’m fairly new to using Fiverr, but something about this just screams spam to me. I ***'ed out the name and the ■■■■■ address just in case I’m wrong.

So far I’ve marked both messages as spam just in case, but if this is how it’s supposed to be, then at least I’ll know for next time.

TIA y’all!

I’ve gotten a message like that too. It’s a scam because if someone from that company wanted to hire you, they would email you through the company email (they just used gmail to email me).

Hi Krystin and welcome to the forum.

Most likely a scam, yes, and in any case, one of Fiverr’s major rules, one of those that you can lose your account over, is that all communication has to stay on Fiverr, no exchange of contact info unless necessary for a gig (say you design calling cards, obviously you need the email of the customer if that’s going to be on it but still that email is not to be used for anything else).

Especially as long as you’re still new, unfortunately, you’ll probably get quite a few spam/scam messages, as new people generally are a better target.
