Sounds sketchy to me, and it’s definitely against the Terms of Service for the buyer to be communicating indirectly through links like that.

That stinks! How disappointing. I had a similar experience earlier today too. :sweat_smile:

Yes. 100% scam.

There seems to be a lot of this going around lately. How can people live with themselves scamming others out of their hard earned money? Isn’t this one of the clear signs of someone who is a psychopath?

From what I understand, a psychopath cares about no one or the consequence of their actions unless it happens to them. Apparently, they are missing the empathy portion that rest of us normal people have.

Ignore that scammer or report to CS.

Unfortunately, the scammers :smiling_imp: seem to pick on sellers that are new to Fiverr. That does not mean we sellers who have been here a while have not had contact from scammers.

This Quick Response is the message I send to apparent scammers. I did not write it all myself. There was another seller on the Forum who posted something similar.

Thanks for contacting me. Unfortunately, your request doesn’t align with the service that I offer. In fact, it does not align with any of my services! Apologies if this hadn’t seemed clear to you after reading my gig descriptions. I suggest you stop looking for sellers who might fall for this silly scam.

By the time you have finished reading this, I have already blocked and reported your account!

Best of luck and have a wonderful (not really) day! :wink:

That, sir, appears to be a scam.

Also, when you click on a link, it can deposit a trojan or browser hijack onto your computer. That’s not uncommon. Don’t click on these sketchy links.

Yes I was careful and I didn’t click on the link.

It’s definitely a scam. It’s concerning that you need to ask that question.

Also, none of these things are related to PDF data entry. You should know that if you’re considering a data entry job.
