Worse Messages Ever Recieved


#21

Refer em to me, I’ll do it and split the $$ with ya as a referral.


#22

good idea… next time I will :slight_smile:


#23

Apart from all the messages that are just - hi! or calling me dear or asking me if I can outsource work - this one was particularly offensive - I’m sure you can work out the word used. I notice they still have an account so…


#24

Makes me miss the days of getting emails from a person in a foreign country who has a sick someone and really needs money fast. Ahhh, the good old days.


#25

My 2 that I despise are the “can you do this as a gift”? and the “give me lots of work for free and I will give you mass orders in future”!

This combined both. This is after he asked for 5000 words for $5. I told him no thanks, but he persisted. So I sent him a customer offer of $50.


#26

LOLz at my budget is $5. :smiley: Bargain basement budget. Tsk, tsk, tsk!

“sorry i don’t need your service”

Ouch! I bet you were crushed? Not! :smile:


I’ve had some VERY, very interesting messages. :grimacing:

Here’s one that took me by surprise. :hushed:

message

Yeah, right. Why would I hit up a complete stranger? For him to kidnap my :peach:.
Um, no, thank you!


#27

Never had anything too out of the ordinary but I once had a couple different buyers hit on me.

Like, dude. It’s Fiverr. Not Plenty Of Fish.


#28

More like Plenty of creepers. :joy:

Yup! Many of the guys on here think it’s a dating site.

Sending “Hi” or “Hello” with nothing of substance.

Asking where are you from? and other nonsense that has nothing to do with the services offered.


#29

I’ve seen people suspended/banned for less… WAY less. It’s a shame.

And some of these made me laugh out loud… probably to keep from crying :grin:


#30

I get messages like this from time to time:

“Hi JonBaas! You gigs are awesome! I like everything about you, and I think you are Fiverr’s best seller of gigs. I want to do what you do, so I think we should be partners. We share all profits, and we be a great team! So, what you say? Respond me back. I am waiting for your valuable reply.”

:roll_eyes:

:see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil:

One of my weird message was someone send me a porn video and wanted me to make it a better quality. :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil:


#32

Tough job but somebody has to do it I guess.
Were there any guidelines as to what would make it better quality?

Edit: Dont answer that


#33

“Hy” = double trouble.


#34

Sounds like a lucrative deal. :moneybag: :money_mouth_face:
An opportunity of a lifetime? :astonished:


#35

“Can I have your whatsapp Number”


#36

I had to google this before I knew I had just been abused :joy:


#37

Use your skills to earn :smile:


#38

How is that a terrible message?

Using your skills to earn income is what Fiverr is all about.


#39

User: “Hi”.
Me: Hello XX. Thanks for contacting me. How can I help you
User: “I WANT WORK “


#40

Seriously, I do get annoying messages every now and then, but daaaang,
after reading through this thread…I actually feel lucky!!

Let’s see the worst message I got…
I think I mentioned this before somewhere, but I found a seller who stole my gig image,
I contacted her/him in Japanese ( because she claimed to be one in her profile) , I get a crappy English reply and she said something like "I dont know it was your image OK"
she also added a “I native japanese, OK”

Yup, that was quite annoying.
