Hi just got a message this morning that went like this:
Hi sue_mcl, i hope you are doing well
I’ve seen your offer and I’m very interested in your service but i want you apply this idea in this gig :
(website link to a fiverr gig)
Please let me know if you can do it , How much will it cost , and how we can proceed ?
Waiting for your answer.
Just a big warning to anyone else that gets this message - I got one almost exactly like this last year and it took me to a fiverr gig, which was nothing to do with my gig offering and I thought hmmmm that is strange, but then I noticed for some reason I wasn’t logged in to fiverr anymore so I went to log back in, until I realised that the link wasn’t actually fiverr, it was an incredibly good copy of a fiverr gig on a website designed to track my login information.
So don’t get sucked in!
I immediately replied and asked for a script or a direct link not a short link - as a short link makes it less obvious what they are doing and surprise surprise, no response from this potential buyer.
It is such a clever scam because they make you think that you might get an order out of it…
