Hi guys! I have an Italian proofreading Gig here on Fiverr and while answering a request from a buyer, he sent me a message in which he asks me where I live, my address, my Amazon account and my amount of purchase on Amazon. Should I trust him or is it dangerous to do such things? Thanks in advance and sorry for this stupid question, but I am still new on Fiverr!

Obviously it’s against TOS to provide this kind of information and your account can be banned for this.

As I’m aware he shouldn’t need this information for a proofreading :thinking:

Ok, thanks a lot for your advice! I immediately stopped the order as I read your reply:wink: I really need to read TOS a lot of times now:sweat_smile:

Hi. It is not allowed to share personal information or communication with clients. If any clients ask for that type of information. First, tell him about the TOS and if he repeat or force report him to the CS or can Ban him as spammer. Also do not trust anybody to share your personal information such as account number. amazon or whatever. It is a trap.

And Sometimes, You will notice some buyer sent links do not click the links directly without checking it. make sure it has https and try to open it from different browser where your fivers account is not logged. or you can separate just domain https://domainname.com first and load it check what the site about. if you fell safe then only click. any unusual activity if you see contact customer support.
Have a nice day
