Sensible, or a scam?


#1

I just joined, so Im not sure if this is a scam or a regular thing happening here… a guy asked me to download whatsapp so I could send photos faster and he could get me more orders. But that just doesnt seem right… isnt using the app how you get paid?

Hi.

Do not contact anyone in personal… keep everything within Fiverr. Some of new buyers or sellers will ask you to contact in personal. But let them know tgat they can contact you only in Fiverr.

Thank You

Yeah, this immediately sounds like a scam. If you want me to explain how big of a scam this is, just contact me on Snapchat, and make sure the first thing you send me is a snap of the front and back of your credit card. =)

Fiverr isn’t a scam, but some people are crooks. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. You can always refund or cancel an order, you can always say “no.”

Let’s remember the wisdom of Meghan Trainor.

“My name is no
My sign is no
My number is no
You need to let it go”

LOL

Thanks you guys! I really appreciate the responses.

If you need to send orders fast you are allowed to use Dropbox. It’s free and easy to use.
Do not do what he said to do!

Really? I thought any external communication was frowned upon, even file upload.

I probably misread what he wrote then.

We are allowed to use dropbox to send files.
