Spam, spam, spam

Just today I’ve received two emails at have asked me if I 1) would like to get paid $5 for giving someone positive feedback on his eBay site, and 2) someone asking me to email them back if I want more info about an online business. I reported them both.



How much spam do you all usually receive? These were my first…

Never get any spam yet

Like @madmoo said not as much as I would expect on such a website but when I do I click the Report button and ignore

Why is the first one Spam? It seems to be a legitimate request for gig service based on your profile, no?

No, giving feedback has nothing to do with any of my gigs… The emails were sent as messages through my gigs.

OH yes, my mistake. I think I clicked another profile and saw some writing gigs. I see you’re all art. And frankly, very nice art!

I’ve never gotten spam on Fiverr before. Good thing, I get enough of it in my email inbox already.

I get it occasionally :confused: I either ignore or report.

I got once, I knew it because I couldn’t open the message and there’s a notification that it deleted due to spam flag. So I actually never read any spam message here LOL

I don’t usually get much spam thankfully

i haven’t received any yet but not surprised - a lot of spam going on on the internet.

I get nothing but spam. I have not gotten a single genuine inquiry on any of my gigs. I get everything from people just saying Hi and nothing else, to people saying they will pay me $250 dollars (which is well over my gig price) if I will contact them via Google Hangouts or ■■■■■. I have gotten 35 of them over the last 3 months and 14 were just the last month alone. I have contacted Fiverr customer service multiple times and they inform my case is unheard of to them. . . and it appears that may be the case. . . but they are doing nothing other than simply saying they are sorry. My response time is still taking a hit because I am not engaging with spammers. I would be curious to know if anyone else has had any issues close to what I am having.

You are replying 7 years later (maybe you didn’t notice).

The moderators don’t like to see old posts resurrected.

Best just to create your own new topic for discussion.

Enjoy the forum. :slightly_smiling_face:
