I was going through my facebook newsfeed and found a weird post that a Fiverr level 2 seller is being blackmailed by someone on facebook. Let me explain what happened.
The scammer purchased gigs of a fiverr level 2 seller from 2 different accounts. Than the scammer contacted the fiverr seller on his personal facebook profile and demanded that the seller pay him $300 otherwise the scammer will cancel all the orders and report about the seller.

Now a days promoting gigs on social media is must but if this kind of blackmailing incidents increase than many sellers will avoid promoting their gigs on social media.
I think this is a very serious issue and Fiverr should take some initiative to protect the sellers from scammers.
