If you face trouble for anything, it will be for this…

You probably shouldn’t have asked that question.

You need to remove the name of the other person from your post above as that is not allowed on the forum.

It looks like the other person was banned.

I’m being flagged just for mentioning that I work other places too

Not just for mentioning, but for expressing interest to work with someone somewhere else.

Getting A LOT of these types of requests.
I always answer with-
“Contact outside of Fiverr in this manner is not allowed”
This automatically gets the review pop up.
Then I block em from the app.
Then I check how long they have been a member.
Then report them from their screen name as spam.
Call me harsh but I have not got time for this nonsense 😠.

It is nonsense. I have (on purpose) went down the rabbit hole on another platform with one of these ‘buyers.’ They end up asking for your bank details and social security, etc. They say they need this to pay you. However. they also say they will pay you at the end of the month (after you have worked for a month).

My belief is that these offers are 2 sided scams. On one side a buyer gets free work. On the other, they also get all the information they need to steal your identity.

What I get shocked by is how many people seem to fall for scams like this. It is like a lot of people have blind trust for anyone online who pitches to work with them.

Yeppers, I read an article the other day on “overpayment voice over scams”.

They suck you in, and some legitimately pay you and then claw it back.

Stay in your lane Fiverr newbs?

“I’m working outside of fiverr too as a freelancer, what exactly have you got in mind?”

The only reason you would need to ask this question is if you were considering taking work off of Fiverr.

Why would Fiverr be okay with you do going there? Think about that.

Maybe you’ll get banned. Maybe just suspended. Read the ToS and think more critically .

well… there is a first time for everything. I’m only 2 weeks old on Fiverr :)…

I get it. Perhaps I get too up myself. Before Fiverr, I was a hotel manager. For years I’d had to deal with scams like “We are a party of priests. We need to pay via direct bank transfer.”

Maybe I was lucky in that my email and message etiquette was already hardened by the time I started freelancing.

I meant no offense. 😉

well it’s just a question… I didn’t accept or asked for anything (I was told until you just talk about something, that something doesn’t become reality / I did not know about this Big Brother thing) … but ok I was careless I’ll admit, I should not have even entertained the idea… never again

" I didn’t accept or asked for anything"

You don’t need to ask for this to be an issue. You implied. That’s enough to get you penalized because Fiverr wants to PREVENT you taking work off. They aren’t going to wait until it’s already happened.

Interesting point of view… have you seen that (time traveller) movie where the police can see into the future(doesn’t matter how) and they catch “criminals” before they even had committed something… plot twist at the end, their method was wrong, not everything is set in stone…sorry but I can’t say that banning me or anyone fro this would be fair

You can’t punish someone for simply implying something, there is no such law on earth that says that

The problem is the terms of service, To use Fiverr, you already agreed not to communicate with buyers outside of the platform.

Even when they are a mile long, you should always read terms of service. I don’t use Windows 10 because of theirs and neither do some former Microsoft engineers.

At least this time, you were made wise to your mistake before you actually made it.

yes… everyone is right…in their own way… an I understand Fiverr too, they have to protect what they have built (I’d do the same)

Bottom lines is the message got approved…nothing bad happened 🙂 …lessons were learned … the work continues

Or are very desperate and very inexperienced.

Or think that they will be protected no matter what, and don’t even need to think for themselves.

The difference is that shows like that are depicting clairvoyance and telepathy.

No clairvoyance or telepathy is required to see that you intended to take business off Fiverr because you said it yourself.

It’s totally fair. You broke the ToS. Take responsibility or get banned. The choice is yours. If you don’t like the rules, then don’t use the service. You don’t get to decide when or when they apply. That’s not how policy works.

It’s not about law. It’s about policy.

The policy says in black and white that you are not to discuss taking work off Fiverr, which is exactly what you did. You either didn’t read the ToS or you missed that part.

You can argue all you like. We’re telling you that doing this will get you banned. If you don’t want our help, don’t post in the forum.
