I just made my account here yesterday and since then I’ve had 5 people message me wanting to “offer business deals” on ■■■■■ ($_kyp_e to them) and sending PDFs I’m honestly too afraid to click on. The first time it happened, I added them on ■■■■■ thinking it was a normal thing to do business but I quickly realized something was up. Suddenly, they would talk about other freelance website. Some would tell me they’ve been banned and would offer me a monthly fee to give them some kind of account? Obviously shady deals, offers and possibly malware-filled PDFs, but for an account that has been up for most likely less than 24 hours its strange that all my contacts with people so far are these “I have a business deal I would like to discuss with you type”
Does anyone have tips for this? How do you approach the situation?
Edit: I’m guessing since the website has put blocks instead of text for what I’m typing that this is a no no.
