So for the third time this month, I have had a regular buyer try and bend the rules to get me to either communicate with them outside of Fiverr or just act weird. Today, though, it has just gotten silly. A regular buyer messages me, yo see, to say “see the attached file.”
I open this file and a message awaits which reads, “Hello,
Starting from this moment I will hire you from another account. The account name is (XXXXXXmal).
Now, there is something obviously very dodgy going on here and I am not going to work with this person anymore. More than that, though, this kind of thing is really disrespectful. Asking a seller to do something against TOS, a buyer sending you a tip with a list of instructions for a service which you do not provide in the expectation that you have to find a way to do that now anyway, or asking a seller go along with something clearly disingenuous is just rude.
I would never do this.
Anyway, rant over.
