URGENT for all! "Fiverr Giveaway program" SCAM


#1

Hi all,
I just received this message from a user pretending that he is an admin on fiverr saying:

"

[ he gave me the link here!]

When I opened the link, there is a designed page very similar to fiverr website asking for my credentials. Obviously, this is a hacker who wants to steal some users accounts!
I contacted the customer support to block the user and do the necessary. I know most of you will be aware of such things, but this post for those who did not face such hacking trials before.
Please be aware and watch out from these guys!

Fiverr website will NEVER ASK FOR YOUR USER AND PASSWORD!!!
If you received this message and provided them with your info, you need to contact the customer support and change your password as well!

Cheers!

Wow, that is actually a decently made site. Sadly, they were stupid enough to ask for the security question answer… that is the biggest red flag anyone can ever make.

Thanks for letting us know.


#4

Huh making us aware Thank you

Heck, I don’t even remember what my security question was, so how would I know the answer? :smiley: I have different security questions on different sites… that scam of a clone site is unbelievable!

Oh not again. Once I lost $32. I received a fake email (At that time I didn’t know that was fake as the Hacker used exact Fiverr logo, fonts & the template) saying “click here to receive Fiverr notifications to your mobile”. I was new to Fiverr as it was just my 2nd month & didn’t know that I should check that with CS or at least with Forum people. I thought that email was from Fiverr & I clicked that link. :bomb: :bomb: Unfortunately, it was my first earning from Fiverr. :cry:
