Scam: potential client asked me a fee of $25 to hire me

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know that they are people sending messages on Fiverr asking a fee of $25 as a pre-registration at their website so they can, after that, hire your services at Fiverr. This is the 3rd time that I’m contacted with this kind of messages from different users. In both situations I informed that this type of offer is against Fiverr TOS and reported the situation.

Exactly the same, yes.

That’s funny scammer.
Who will accept to play such game?

Some desperate sellers with no orders might.

@idealwhiteboard, maybe some new freelancers who doesn’t know how the things work for a freelancer at these platforms. They are people who simply don’t read anything when they create an account, unfortunately.
