Someone outside of Fivver contacted me

I posted a gig and ************** looked me up on Facebook and offered his services. I had already found someone on Fivver and I’m happy, just don’t want members looking me up and trying to solicit outside of Fivver. Is there a way to report him?

Mod Note: Seller’s name removed.

Hi - and welcome

I’ve heard of this happening before (on a different platform, but still). Some sellers are under the impression that this is a clever move … but, as you state here, it’s really not. It’s annoying. And kind of creepy.

You can report the seller to CS - it’s against TOS to contact anyone outside of Fiverr.

Alternatively, just a suggestion - you’ll note most of us don’t use our real names, which makes us more difficult to track down outside the site.

Lmao oh wow, I’ve never had someone contact me through my facebook. That’s creepy.
Yes you should report them, that is soliciting.
