I was contacted by a seller , who started off by saying
“i have few projects,are you intrested?”.
I was interested, so I said, Yeah Sure!, and this is what he sent
“Hey it’s nice to see you here, actually i have another new profile and i need some reviews on it so plz can you buy one of my gig and give me 5 star review ? In return i will buy your 2 gigs with different ids and give you 5 star ratings…and i will be the first one to buy your gigs”
Is this even legal, I know its very difficult to get the first few ratings, I had to do ungodly amount of work for $5 to get that first rating. But resorting to foul practices like this is just lame. I wanted to report him to CS, but he was just starting out and I did not want to ruin his future on fiverr.
