Shady review offers?

I wasn’t sure if this was the right place to post, but I was wondering if someone else had received messages like this before.
Today someone messaged me out of the blue, asking if I wanted to make a deal. They offered to give me a good review in exchange for a good review. I declined and, thankfully, didn’t hear from them again.
Is this a common thing? I know it’s not allowed on fiverr, but the whole message system makes it so that we need to keep our response rate up and reply to every last message instead of letting us ignore them :confused:
How have others dealt with that?

I’ve never received a message like that but it’s completely against Fiverr’s TOS.

You did the right thing by declining.

Yeah, it just didn’t seem worth it. No idea why they messaged me, I’m not even a Level 1 seller :joy:

Reviews from a buyer are ALWAYS more valuable than a review from a scammer. :wink:
