Never respond to big project requests unless they actually put up. You don’t want someone putting a bone in your face only to take it away. Seriously no links or attachments unless it’s to do with a project and it’s their site. if it’s a FB or something suspicious exit stage left. if the file is an exe or a dll file don’t open. if the file is a zip file scan it. There are tons of people out there who will try and deceive but for every one shady person there are a lot of decent buyers. believe me I have like 5 customers who return on a weekly basis with like 2 or 3 orders a week.

Hello,

I’ve had those “I have a big project for you, please check the attached file for details” type of message, and when I actually read the text file, it was either an email address or an SKYPE/MSN ID. I never responded to them, I just clicked "report."

Never respond to those messages!!!

Nothing I hate more than spam and slackers…err… hackers.

I just posted my first 2 gigs and have already been asked to join some community with contact info, phone number etc… for $5. Is this against Fiverr’s terms? No way I am going to, just curious.



“Hi kendur, this is ******** I’m writing to ask you if you want to signup to a website as a lead with valid phone number and contact info for 5$? If you are interested let me know. It’s for a submit an invention site.”

How did you get hacked from a txt file? I’m always wary of people who send me txt files. It is usually because the have some shady info they don’t want to get caught in the filter.
